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
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.

PwC gives an opportunity to manage own portfolio and individually as well collectively responsible for managing the assurance activities including KPI set for key management team Work culture is positive but salary is a constraint .
The work was very challenging on a day to day basis dealing with different company structures and audits.

Having joined the organization as a fresh graduate, I was offered a full time position as a trainee associate in the assurance industry, and was promoted twice within the span of four years. Excellent interpersonal, communication and organizational skills with proven abilities in team management and planning
Yearly company iftars, and team dinners
Long unexpected hours
Follow up with internal and external email requests. Check if all client orders have been fulfilled. Call customers and schedule meetings. Schedule internal meetings with operations and management. I learnt the ins and outs of logistics 3PL and account management. Hardest part is adhering to project deadlines since there are many cross functional departments involved as well as stakeholders. Most enjoyable part is successfully launching and signing off a project.
The organization needs to look its current structure, at the moment it is very top-heavy. Job Work/Life Balance - no existent as our official working hours is from 08:00 to 18:00 Salary/Benefits - Not as competitive as the rest of the Big 4 Job Security/Advancement - There is no job security, especially with the downturn of market Management - Very top heavy Job Culture - PwC global culture is excellent, which sadly isn't the case in the regional office.
In my current position I have led teams through the planning, execution and conclusion stages of statutory audits, validation of financial reporting packages and other varied special nature engagements. My responsibilities included engagement management, client relationship management and co-ordination with professionals in various fields.
