    Awful place, filled with discrimination, demoralisation and office politics

    Current Employee - Accountant in London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Accountant in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Some of the people who work at PwC are genuinely kind and friendly and working with them can be a good experience. However, these people are always dominated by the loud, arrogant types and left unrecognised and demoralised.

    Cons

    Deeply unfair performance management system, in which the most important trait appears to be a loud, dominant personality and in which office politics and discrimination (particularly against quieter types who get on with their work rather than talk all day) is rife
    Excessive and unreasonable working hours in which staff are worked like slaves, often under unreasonable pressure. It is usual to have to work at weekends. And, at the end of the year the hardworking people end up with a demoralising negative (and often false) performance review whilst the loud (but often incompetent) ones get promoted.
    The quality of work often is not great. The firm is increasingly obsessed with budgets and efficiencies and often work is signed off that is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to recognise and reward the people who actually do the work rather than the loud people who are good at office politics but often manipulate and lie about others.
    Abandon your deeply unfair performance management system.
    Reduce hours and hire more staff to reduce the workload
    This could be (and used to be) a nice place to work if there were changes as there are some nice people

    Former Employee - Manager in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Former Employee - Manager in San Francisco, CA (US)

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very intelligent, driven, and motivated people who have a solid methodology of process improvement backing their approach. Great place to start off a consulting career

    Cons

    Very difficult to justify rates to a client based upon the true nature of the resources staffed on engagements. Although highly educated, staff consultants usually have very limited expertise in the industry of the client, and it becomes difficult to justify the high expense.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
