working at pwc

Some random thoughts I might someday pull together into a coherent blog post about working at PricewaterhouseCoopers (and the Big-4 in general).

  • PwC start date, no communication, no seat.
  • Refusing a promotion
  • Hiring while firing
  • Recruiting and hiring
  • Coaching
  • Attitude
  • Utilization, getting put on projects
  • Working Hours
  • Substantive work - tax returns, provisions, not high level research
  • Specialities
  • Ladder and promotions
  • Performance reviews and ARC's, ratings
  • Internal politics
  • Overhiring
  • Poor resource management
  • Ineffective delegation by managers
  • Gap between the capabilities of the staff and the requirements of the project
For all of the inefficiencies and issues of working at PwC, there are two events that will always stand out for me, and have caused me to be very loyal to PwC:
  • Moving back to PwC from KPMG
  • The partners always looking out for me, even after I left
