PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory Services LLC

4.0 of 5 stars

March 2016 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Tons of client interaction from Day 1. Firm culture is hard to beat, with ample opportunities for training and international secondments to other PwC network firms. Everyone works hard but vacation time and weekends are generally respected (at least at the Senior Associate level). People in PwC come from a wide range of backgrounds: former regulators, lawyers, investment bankers, MBAs, and straight out of undergrad. Great mix of bright people.

Downers

Projects vary in terms of quality. Some are very intellectually stimulating and challenging, while others are nothing but grunt work (even for managers/directors). Getting on good projects is very much dependent on networking within the firm and knowing the right directors and partners, and even then, timing plays a big role. Also, salary system is completely opaque, very hard to have an idea of what you could be making if you stay at the firm for 3, 5, or 10 years.

Comments

Enthusiasm goes a long way. The firm has some great practice areas and unique programs, research them and ask intelligent questions about them.

Happy withe choice

You will have so much room to grow and exposure to various industries.
Working with some of the sharpest people will prepare you.
In short, a great place to start your career.

Downers

Hours & too much travel can wear you down.
A lot can be expected from you even at an associate level. Be calm and always be ready to prioritize.

Comments

Go meet and talk to as many PwC people as you can and see if you are a good fit.

The firm really does care about your career progression and will work with you to help you achieve your goals. The firm is also very strong in terms of adding diversity to the firm.

Downers

Due to the size of the firm it may feel that it is easy to slip through the cracks. The traveling may be rough.

Comments

Be sure to be proactive when looking to be staffed on the sexier projects. Your network and building your case for these staffing are extremely important.

Internship Review

5.0 of 5 stars

August 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

I felt my peers were very supportive and these group of people I have worked with are most talented and smart people.

Downers

The allocation of work to interns is not that organized at the start but in later stages it gets better as they get to know what we want and what they can expect from us.

Comments

Learn the culture and ask questions that will give you a clear understanding of what they expect from you. Get to know how you will be staffed and what criteria you will be evaluated. Ask for feedback and get them know your interets.

Amazing company

Amazing people with varied backgrounds and great stories. Big focus on building relationships and helping each other. Very flexible. Challenging/interesting work.

Downers

Hours can be harsh, but if you made it here you won't really mind.

Comments

Be very mindful of how you deal with people. Just being "books smart" doesn't cut it in this company.
