Okay

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The job is nice but the hours are long and can be stressful. You do get to learn a lot about the client and the opportunities. The benefits are also good.

Way too many hours

PwC is always desparate for new people as their turnover rate is insanely high, around 25%. This is due to the insane amount of hours you will have to work. I had to work at least 60 hours a week from January to November and had to work multiple 80 hour weeks within that.

Pros

Free food sometimes. Can work remote

Cons

way too many hours and too much work

Great Internship

The only downside of this experience is how crowded the office is. Most interns do not even have a desk, and, at one time, we're asked to work from home only because our 10-people-shared desk has to be given to the audit team.

Learn a lot

PwC is a great place to work. You will have the ability to learn a lot while gaining valuable practical experience. Working across team functions is a plus

Some good people, some snakes

These people will look you in your face and tell you that you don’t have a thing to worry about and then turn around and tell you your performance is poor and that you’re no longer needed. Lol

What is the best part of working at the company?Haven't figured that out in all the years i worked there. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Working with people who don't know what they don't know. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Highly stressful and surreal. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Total confusion and every running by the seat of their pants trying accomplish trial work instead of focusing on core business.

Flexible Work

Tough busy seasons but flexible work and great work related benefits such as a comprehensive health insurance plan and generous expenses for training. Fun atmosphere in office and great WFH balance.

Horrible place to work

Very unsupportive work environment and managent does not support you. Unless you enjoy working under extreme duress and with people who are manic capitalists stay away and stay sane.

Pros

Swank offices, all the toys as far as hi tech

Cons

The partners are hyper capitalistic jerks

It’s big 4

Sometimes you work on great teams with amazing people and other times you want to curl up in a ball and cry the project is so bad. Great place to meet incredibly smart people.

Pros

Good benefits and remuneration. Good team support. Tech savvy.

Cons

Poor work life balance. High work load.

Great place to gain experience

Hectic schedules, great place to work for start of career.Lots of growth opportunities and good bosses.Not so great work life balance especially during busy seasons
Was this review helpful?

Cut-throat place where mostly everyone is in it for themselves.

Your "Relationship Leader" (manager) is almost non-existent for basic questions or guidance. Extremely clicky environment which leads to very high turnover. Leaving was the best thing to happen to me. No loyalty. Do not recommend.

Pros

remote work

Cons

no loyalty or guidance to set you up for success.

no work life balance

No work life balance. Only join if you are an all rounder and super-smart. Communication skills are very important. Most supervisors are good and helpful but some may be rude. Many a times you will be shared with different teams and will be expected to work in a totally different technology, subject-matter and would be expected to adapt and still do an excellent job

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Long Hours and Utilization

Dynamic work environment

I really enjoyed my time with PwC on several engagement over the years. The company compensation based on my chosen employment arrangements were really attractive at the time.

The Best of the Big Four

Demanding culture but that's to be expected. I find the work rewarding and the flexibility managing my schedule has been great. I'm on the technology side and have seen the company make huge investments in the past three years.

PwC Private Assurance - Good for public accounting

For public accounting (I've worked at both PwC and a mid-tier firm), PwC has great benefits for an accounting firm (excellent pay, good medical, lots of random gift cards and gifts on behalf of firm, great training). They have an average amount of PTO, but a very generous unlimited sick time. Average busy season was around 55 hours.
