Good pay, good fringe benefits...but nothing is worth working here. The culture will eat your soul
Managing Director (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 6, 2019
So the good news is that I get to put PwC on my resume. The bad news is that I have PwC on my resume because I actually had to experience the disaster that is that company.
I was in Advisory, so not Audit, Tax or Assurance.
Here's a good story...I had to let 2 people on my team go because someone somewhere thought there would be a downturn in the economy. Ooook. I got to announce who I let go at a Partner meeting at the Ritz Carlton where 250+ partners were staying for a meeting. That's right, I fired people who did nothing wrong, and talked about to peers while drinking Macallan 18. To those two...I am sorry.
This place is full of smart people who are really good at what they do. Unfortunately, what they do is both great work and Game of Thrones style ambushes, politics, back stabbing and lying. It's an incredibly toxic culture and one that I wouldn't return to for all the money in the world.
Smart people, good brand recognition
Everything else besides that.
