The best and brightest work with PwC. Very great place to start your career. Good working relationship and excellent work culture. Management is open and collaborative and team oriented.
long hours during busy season
A typical day at work involves relating with colleagues across the organisation providing office administrative support in logistics, travels, repairs, maintenance of facilities, hotel reservations and many more. The ability to relate people from all works of life, respect for one another as well as free access to management. We put ourselves in each other shoes, address each other by first name and treat each other equally. PwC is undoubtedly a great place to work. I enjoy every bit of my work at PwC.
No free lunches
One hour break
Risk Assurance-BI Developer A typical day at work: Most of the time--Arrive at client's office at their time of starting a day's work (and unfortunately, some clients' companies are far....). Communicate with clients in the morning or afternoon, and implement the BI application according to the discussed requirements. Go to the client's canteen or cafe nearby for food. Report to senior manager at the end of the day. End work and go back home when the client is about to shut their office's door. Sometimes--Arrive at PwC's office at 10 a.m. Look for a seat maybe if new employees come and occupy the tables. Design and make demos and documents for the next bid, or implement tools for internal use. Report to the senior manager at the end of the day. A lot of the times, literally, about 10 p.m or 11 p.m....Because the workload is heavy and they have strict limitations about how many employees they can hire. What to learned? To deal with priorities under heavy workload, and to communicate with all kinds of clients. Management? I think it depends. I was luck to be in teams with an easy-going senior manager. And he always stays with the team if they need to work overtime, which actually happens a lot....But I've also seen other managers with a big temper that loves to shout at their associates all the time. The company has a full set of internal IT systems for all kinds of activities related to communications and management. Workplace culture: Generally about doing our best to finish the works well and on time. Have a lot of activities all around the year. Sport games, - more...
Free food and taxi for some overtime. Free fruit every Wednesday.
Heavy workload, and long hours
Pwc is one of the best companies in the world i must say, working with a team is one of the most interesting part, you don't get to do the work alone and then meeting other people who have more experiences and know more about the job is another great experience, the work can get tedious especially at the end of the accounting year but its still a process we get to enjoy later on.
A typical day at work involves me interfacing with client personnel and senior management of the companies and me reporting directly to my managing Partner and supervisor. It involves learning about the business of the client understanding business processes, evaluating them and looking for ways to improve them. It also involves detailed review of financial information and interpreting them.
A very good place and great learning environment and the good thing is they open the door to everyone irrespective of your background. The company identifies employee as their major asset and they invest heavily in staff training. The work maybe time demanding during the busy season, but the experience is worth it. PwC is a well structured organisation that live to their principles and core values.
Work life balance
The period of work is quite seasonal. Work tend to be much at yearend and around the beginning of the year due to regulatory timelines for entities to submit their audited report. People development is fundamental and imperative for management (Partners) and they consciously invest in their employees to represent the brand. The good thing about PwC is that it is a fun place to work for anyone who is willing to go the extra mile.
A typical day at work in PwC was very fast paced especially when we were on active audit engagements. Most of this engagements came with very tight deadlines and we had to work not just extra hours, but days also to meet this deadlines. At the end of the engagement there was a huge satisfaction that came with creating value for your client. Some on the job issues were resolved among junior and senior team members, and an appraisal styled feedback was given (Top to down). The most enjoyable part of the job were the audit room interactions and actually finding team members that were interested in the development of each other both personally and technically. The hardest part of the job was maintaining clients and team members who could just never be satisfied. For business continuity purposes, one just had to endure and put up with some unexpected behaviour from clients and some team members to manage the relationship, however this was only on rare occasions.
Fantastic workplace with the best and brightest (Great learning culture)
PwC is a good place to work, Relatively good benefits but emphasis on solid experience and fantastic brand. Also, relatively good exit opportunities after gaining experience a couple of years.
