    Current employee.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people, lots of opportunities if you seek them out, focussed on employee engagement and communication. Anyone who leaves always says that they miss the people they worked at PwC more than anything else. PwC is concerned about the right things eg quality of work, diversity, flexible working, personal development. Great emphasis on personal integrity and doing the right thing.

    ConsOrganisational structure, lack of clear governance within the partnership model. As above, concerned about all the right things but sometimes patchy in delivery of them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the structure, challenge the partners more

    Good Experience depending overall

    Senior Associate (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsOnly talking about LTT (London Top Tier) Business Group
    Great Client Profiles
    Very less traveling or London based traveling
    Great Colleagues
    Office facilities
    Central London locations

    ConsToo Much Audit Focused
    Resourcing is worthless (book random people on random jobs, no skill based resourcing)
    Some slow Senior Managers (who are Senior Managers for quite some time) are discouraging for promotions
    Too much office politics as promotions depends on how much you know people rather than how much valued you have added
    Most People Manager doesn't take their job even 1% seriously

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote people with both Sales & Delivery skills, not with only internal networking skills
    People Managers roles shouldn't be given to everyone, lets people become People Manager who are really passionate about other people's careers
    Count 360 feedback in Promotion cases

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
