    I worked at PwC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had worked for 1.5 years in PwC SDC, EGL, Bangalore(Non ERP practice) as a technical lead and recently came out of the company to find better opportunities.

    Apart from PwC brand name - not much advantage I had by joining PwC SDC

    Cons

    I must say this place is nothing like a PwC brand name(as it is known for in USA). This company & culture is more like Bearing Point company culture which was acquired by PwC & later named as PwC SDC. Many employees got fooled thinking it is like a PwC USA & joined only to suffer

    Especially for leads & above(ie with 5+ years experienced) - joining here is a dead end. Because there is hardly any growth opportunities

    Company policies & support system is easily one of the LEAST employee friendly compared to many other CMML 5 IT companies

    Management does not listen to employee concerns and their career growth problems.

    Firing policy in the company is bizarre and shocking - employee is just a headcount, not considered part of the company.

    Payments need to be better as the company claims it is of PwC standard. As of now salary is comparable to well known IT companies such as TCS.

    It is also painful to see that nothing is transparent and most of the decisions etc are done by 4-5 old members(employees retained from Bearingpoint company) of the company and not even discussed with others.

    Because of wide contacts of PwC parent company in USA, PwC SDC Bangalore has no problem in getting projects. Therefore seems like management is not much bothered to make the workplace, processes, employee benefits etc any better.

    Work life balance is pathetic - you will be forced to work extra hours during week days and also forced to work on holidays & week ends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is is not at all transparent, good if they expand their decision making team to beyond their friendly group of Bearing Point folks

    Management is only bothered about billing - however please give a thought on whether a work assignment is making anything useful for the employees.

    While hiring do not give false promises to the candidate on his roles & responsibilities - please have some honesty and concern about employees.

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

    Pros

    Exceptional quality of services, talent and market brand. Strong cultural foundation of collaboration, results, and genuine personal engagement.

    Cons

    Firm has grown dramatically in recent years stretch the firms leadership thin. Core values are eroded by numerous acquisitions and sense of identity is at risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Run by the numbers" management strategy results in senior partner abdication of responsibility for developing the firm and a general erosion of the firms core values. Give the firm back to the partners and let them run it.
