Challenging

It is challenging to work within one of the smaller niche departments of PwC, there is little understanding of the niche market space that the small department works within.

Good place to learn but no job security

Good place to learn but no job security. Salary is ok. You have to take care of your own development. Highly financial centric. Alot of travelling. Empathy depends on people but not as a firm wide value.

A competitive environment that always challenge you. Management support is also not so bad. Career advancement is open for everyone. Fast paced and challenging.

It is a technical place to work

You have to be very thorough in your work. There is no compromise on quality. Reading the tax law is a must. People around you are very competitive. Still it is a great place to work.

Highly motivating challenges in a frustrating environment

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.

Good culture but poor compensation and recognition

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.

Amazing place to work.

Amazing place to work. Management is supportive. Great leadership. Teamwork is vital. Excellence is prioritized. Working with different teams and different clients is the most enjoyable part of the job.

Competitive work environment but provided lots of exposure to business domains, tools and processes

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

Amazing Experience

It would not be wrong to say that PwC Dubai is a dream place to work. The people culture, work place environment, on the job trainings, and monetary benefits has made it possible for me to survive and give my best.

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.

Good work environment and strong values

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.

Huge firm with pleasant work environment

Reputation precedes itself. PWC is a huge firm of course and being here you can feel that. Firm really makes a difference in the region. Great experience.

Your team will decide your happiness in the firm

If you're lucky to get into a good team, you'll be happy. Choose wisely what you want to do as it is very difficult to switch teams once you're in this maze.

Career growth and best practices

This is one of the big 4s. Gives you one the best growth opportunities. Best career coaching and marketability in the industry afterwards. How ever the work life balance does get disrupted due to tight dead lines.
