    Current Employee - Consultant in Chennai

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Haven't got offer to list out pros but good interview panel and enjoyed the interview.

    Cons

    Very Slow interview process and no updates from hr team .
    Needs a lot follow up , they just ignore your emails .
    In terms of pay, me in specific have asked for a reasonable hike based on the reviews i had seen earlier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be good if you can provide updates or reply to the job seekers on time. Ignoring would feel pity inspite of big brand name it maintains in market.

    Breaking News: Bearing Point wears the PwC mask and fools people!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at PwC

    Pros

    If only there was one...

    Cons

    -> This no PwC, people. This is Bearing Point. From culture (if there is any) to everything else screams out Bearing Point. Period.
    -> Holier-than-thou attitude of the HR guys - Seriously, if you want to know what condescension is all about, HR Department at PwC SDC Bangalore is where you should go.
    -> Almost everything needs to be approved by the "TOP LEVEL MANAGEMENT". What are the team managers for? Approving leaves?
    -> People from all departments harp of "procedures" and "process-in-place". Sure there are procedures, none of which are well-established. PwC SDC is like an order-less Government office.

    I could go on, but, PwC SDC is not worth spending too much time on. If you don't want to damage your self-esteem, you'd be better off being at a safe distance from this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure they have their "procedures" and "processes-in-place" and would not be too willing or flexible enough to take suggestions, let alone an advice.

    Pros

    No Pros at all to think of except you will be free all the time :)

     Join here only if you want to end your career here with no work and growth at all , as they don have any work really.

    Cons

    Ah now coming to the CONS the list is huge :

    - Management is worst , no process at all you have to run behind people for everything and they treat you very badly especially HR.

    - They advertise themselves as PwC but not even one PwC policy is implemented and the entire culture is of Baring Point consultancy which was a junk company about to close and PwC acquired it.Though PwC acquired it, it is still being manged by baring point folks and it has its own HR and other policies which suck (Not PwC policies.).There is nothing PwC in PwC SDC except the name which they keep shouting brand brand brand.

    - SDC acts a very cheap offshore team for PwC USA which throws JUNK documentation work or some minute works to be done , apart from that there is no work going on here at all and I am getting frustrated day by day.

    -They are cheats, I see many people being recruited even now I am writing this review for them, ppl pls dont join here and spoil your career.

    -Don't ignore this review - I did the same mistake and joined and I am repenting now.

    -The directors - they are a laughing stock many of them don't know to even communicate properly in english.According to them you should work on anything then only you will grow.Complete idiots who miss manage resources.

    - You will be recruited for some technology but you will never work on that technology except for some small tiny works, rest of the time they will use you for some junk works like documentation , data entry and testing.Believe me many good developers are doing this sorta work here.

    - Projects ? there are no projects here at all, All projects run in the USA and they will throw small tiny non challenging monotonous work here which will be our project! sorry sorry Task !

    - Technology wise they don't know anything at all , they don't know the market because they can never get project themselves, that is there model : PwC US get projects , throws some junk work to PwC SDC bangalore. PwC SDC Bangalore can by itself cannot find projects , that is there working model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to SDC management , you guys suck.Would you do this to your own sons and daughters careers ? Stop cheating people !

    To PwC USA please change the SDC management and work culture , its really horrible and please change your operational model and send quality work off shore Indians are not just cheap resources they are talented as well.
