Work-life balance is definitely the issue with PwC Consulting work in the Middle East. Travelling is heavy and permanent, very long hours with clients usually not respectful of decent working hours, and management not protecting the teams with that regard.
Company has a good collaborative and competitive work culture and in theory good performance recognition system but in practice the latter doesn't work imo. Highly political environment, growth and recognition are slow. Pay is terrible considering quality of employees.
Typical day at work was: fast paced due to agile methodology what you learned: people management is the top most priority in project management management: its important to stay close to the client contact who makes informed decisions as well as ones who influence decisions workplace culture: since we were always deployed at client site, it was important to blend with client work culture instead hardest part of the job: erractic out of country travel schedules, weekends work, late nights most enjoyable: appreciation from client
I was fortunate enough to work with some of the most professional and talented people. I learned a lot from them.
The workplace culture at PwC is very tough and competitive. The people working in PwC are very professional and talented. All are very punctual, hardworking. Pay is good. There are very good conferences and training's for employees so that they can learn new things. Just the work and home life balance is missing. The workload and stress is sometimes impossible to handle.
The most successful Big 4 company in Middle East region, competing MBB Limited career progress due to the number of people and paternalizm Constant travel to KSA Weak HR process Company policies less supportive of employees
PwC has been my home for the past 11 years. I feel honoured and privileged to have worked in such a strong organization where ethics and values are of the utmost importance. I don´t have a typical day since every day is a different day, new challenges, different choices and twists that require a need to improvise, be a step ahead and think outside the box.
Good place to work, get to work with people from all around the world and exposure to a vast variety of clients. A lot of young individuals with new ideas.
Great exposure to clients and executive levels
work-life balance is hard
I personally felt this was a wonderful experience to me. Learning new things everyday was something I enjoyed at PwC. The difficult part of it was coping up with the time constrains and the deadlines in place.
Improvement in my PR skills.
Other departments' work was assigned to me as well.
