    Current Employee - Senior Manager in London, England

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, Pay reasonable, Pension, Good people (in general), good projects

    Cons

    Can feel a bit like a number in a machine (i.e. a revenue generating unit) rather than a person, and the work/life balance on average might be great, but at an individual level can be anything but

    Advice to Management

    Make the work/life balance real rather than theoretical, remove the level of favouritism by Senior Mgt of some indivuduals and invest in all

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Positive, challenging and motivating work environment. Competitive salary at manager and above levels. Encouraged to try new things and good investment in training and development.

    Cons

    Competitive and ambitious colleagues, but not necessarily a bad thing. Expected to constantly adapt, change and be flexible - gets exhausting and difficult to build deep, specialist knowledge. Can also be quite bureaucratic and administrative, especially with end of year appraisal process.

    Former Employee - Management Consulting Senior Associate in Birmingham, England
    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits along with some exceptional people. I had the opportunities to work across a number of sectors, with a variety of clients. If you put in the hardwork, you get rewarded and can carve out your own career path. A great opportunity for any new graduate.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance requiring long hours and extra work just to remain relevant. It's a lucky dip for who your managers are and some are just out for themselves

    Advice to Management

    More promotions from within, fewer experienced hires. High churn of good talent at the lower levels - senior management need to be asking why.
