    Former Employee - Senior Tax Consultant  in  Warsaw (Poland)
    Former Employee - Senior Tax Consultant in Warsaw (Poland)

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

    Pros

    - you're likely to get to learn from some of the best and brightest people
    - you learn good standards of delivery (report writing etc.)
    - you get access to projects for the largest clients in the country
    - realistic chances of an overseas secondment (not for everyone, obviously)
    - decent work-life balance for a Big 4 company - much better than E&Y in any case

    Cons

    - very 'corporate' environment - lots of politics and it gets worse as you climb the ladder
    - Warsaw and CEE leadership fails to explain its decisions - 'official' version of why something is done is usually absurd - and these things affect you
    - Warsaw office is substandard - plumbing problems (yes!); flawed distribution of temperature can be annoying and leads to conflicts in the open space
    - hiring and firing / promotions are often difficult to understand (not in my case though)
    - firm has huge overheads, which makes it expensive - this may affect your motivation ("why am I selling this for this much")
    - adminsitrative personnel (HR, risk management) have way too much power
    - Global and regional leadership are micromanaging offices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your staff like adults. Don't say things nobody will believe. Be straight with people.

    Current Employee - Advisory Manager  in  Atlanta, GA (US)
    Current Employee - Advisory Manager in Atlanta, GA (US)

    I have been working at PwC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Every consulting firm has its own mertis & demerits, i would rate this place above average just for its core values and the culture.

    Cons

    might become difficult if you are new to the organization and dont know enough people, or work in a location that doesnt have people from your group.
