Depending on which department you fall in, you can either get a very good experience and engage in interesting projects, or you can get thrown in the dark where you get under-utilised and become a victim of the blame game from your line management so as not to take the blame themselves. I enjoyed working on a short term project with a partner which we successfully delivered and got positive feedback from the client. Expect an unbalanced work/life balance

Frequent change is management
PwC is a very challenging place to work at with tight deadlines and different reporting managers that in turn enhances your skills to manage time and be as efficient as possible. There is a diverse group of people that you work with from all over the globe that makes it fun and interesting for you to get to know them and their cultures and backgrounds. The management does a great job at arranging social events every few months where everyone can kick back and relax for an evening and meet each other in a non-working environment. The toughest part is the long hours that you have to work, which at times can stretch to working 12+ hours everyday for a few weeks straight.
long hours, difficult to maintain work life balance
PwC provided me appropriate training, coaching and experiences that allow me to build relationships and take advantage of career opportunities. I got diversified client portfolio to enhance my career and capabilities. I learnt time and project management skills during the peak season through appropriate coaching from Senior Managers, Directors and Partners.
Strong work life balance and advancement Good advancement opportunities
A typical day at work - There is no typical day at work for me. Every day brings a new challenge and new problem to solve. What I've learned - I have learned so much during my tenure at PwC - I have learnt how to listen and not react, to think about the big picture when analysing documents, manage expectations of my client and my own boss. Co-workers - I have brilliant co-workers. We work as a team and are always there to help each other out. The hardest part of my job - The hardest part of my job is the high pressure and extremely long hours I have to put in every single day of the month. There is no work/life balance and I also do not like the fact that I get paid quite poorly compared to industry. Most enjoyable part of my job - The enjoyable part of my job is that every project is unique and challenging in its own way. I like that I have to think out of the box, and to put it more appropriately, think like the perpetrator. I love working in a team and I love that every project delivered by me has high level of quality.
