Long work hours
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The social life aspect at PwC was very good, I made some friends there that I believe will remain with me for a long time.


Downers

The long hours (17+ hours a day sometimes) and coming in on weekends made it less enjoyable. Also, even though this happened over only a few days, the lack of sleep due to over work seriously affected the quality of output and productivity negatively.


Advice to Potential Interns

Evaluate how important work-life balance is to you before you begin your internship, and how far you might be willing to push your limits at your future work place.


Advice to Management

When work hours cut into the hours available to sleep, reducing them to less than 5 hours a night, the quality and rate of work produced is SIGNIFICANTLY lower than if employees are able to get at least 8 hours of sleep. I understand the firm is on a time crunch near deadlines, but it would be a lot more profitable for the company to at least allow employees a full night's sleep so that they are able to actually concentrate on their work the next morning, rather than being tired and sluggish.
