Generally satisfied

Senior Associate - Advisory (Current Employee)
London, England

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

ProsGreat learning and development opportunities
People a generally nice, driven, interesting
Exposure to insipring leaders of huge multinational companies
Great opportunities to build your professional network

Besides full-time client work you are expected to do a lot of business development
Performance review and promotion process is very intransparent (despite them claiming the opposite), a lot depends on being friends with right directors and partners

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease salaries!

Politics

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at PwC full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat brand and some talented individuals good standing in the market

ConsIt's very political within assurance some of the people will stab you in the back like a shot if it furthers their career. Also sales everyone is very protective over these a lot of empire building going on.

Promotions only once a year is a joke as is the process itself, tiny amount of credit is given to your day job it's about how good you are at playing the game and kissing the right a!se

Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe sort some values out and live by them promotions twice a year too

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
