Depends on your team

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Super high work load that goes totally underappreciated if you get a bad manager. Reorganizations come abruptly and you might get a different culture. HR has good initiatives to keep things in check, but it all depends on what network you can build - good networks will support and protect you. Stone-age IT that is very slow to transform and keep up with business.

Environnement exigeant mais très formateur

Forte culture d’entreprise et d’équipe . Idéal pour débuter carrière audit externe ou conseil.

People are squeezed like lemons and then throw away

People are squeezed like lemons and then throw away, if you really want to work in a Big 4 and deal with the terrible work/life balance typical of the industry, consider joining one of the other 3, as at very least they respect (slightly) people more.

Great post uni place to grow

After a few years in different PwC offices, It is now time to live PwC. There was no typical day at work, no usual thing: this is what audit and Big4 are about: bringing multiple challenges to you in a very short period. This is what brought me back to the firm after my internship and my last year at the university. But this is also the reason why I am leaving now: time to grow otherwhere. "Work hard, play hard, but never forget why you came in the first place." From my first coach, 6 years ago....

Zurich

Work-Life balance does not exist. No time to learn - just produce. Colleagues are great and supportive.

Learn or lose

If you're looking to work there, be prepared to give up part of your personal life. The pressure at PwC is always on, and so your working hours having to be "flexible"

Pros

Good colleagues

Cons

Zero recognition and appreciation by management

Sehr tolles aber leistungsgetriebenes Unternehmen für Karriere

PwC ist ein wunderbares Unternehmen, wenn man in seiner beruflichen Karriere voran kommen möchte. Es biete viele Chancen, eine enorme Flexibilität in Arbeitszeit und Ort und fordert einem so, dass man stetig wachsen kann. Ausserdem arbeiten tolle Menschen dort, von denen man viel lernen kann. Für die berufliche Weiterentwicklung ist es ein sehr empfehlenswertes Unternehmen. Jedoch ist der Leistungsdruck schon sehr hoch, weswegen auch viele gute Leute das Unternehmen verlassen. Die Work Life Balance ist bei vielen ein grosses Problem und wenn man sich nicht "nur" seinem Job verschreiben möchte, wird es auf Dauer schwierig. In einigen Bereichen werden die Mitarbeiter auch nur als Ressourcen angesehen und teilweise zu wenig als Menschen. Ich finde PwC ein tolles Unternehmen und kann es gerne weiterempfehlen. Man muss sich aber bewusst sein, worauf man sich einlässt und dass die Erwartungen sehr hoch sind. Die Fähigkeit sich abgrenzen zu können, ist eine Voraussetzung, um langfristig bei dem Unternehmen arbeiten zu können.

Pros

Hohe Flexibilität, gute Fringe Benefits

Cons

Tiefer Lohn, hoher Leistungsdruck

Big 4

PwC is one of the big 4 companies but a great place to start working. There are a lot of challenges for the employee to grow after having graduated from university.

Environnement de travail

J'ai beaucoup apprécié travailler chez PwC. J'y ai rencontré beaucoup de personnes de cultures différentes, j'ai formé de forts liens relationnels, j'ai eu de très belles opportunités de développement. Le plus difficile dans ce poste a été la working/life balance, étant donné que les journées au travail étaient longues (8h-21h).

Challenging workplace

If you want to learn a lot a job as an auditor will do. PWC is always thinking of new ways and keeps you on your toes. Great possibilities in-house and easy to find jobs after.

Just Perfect

J'ai fait mon CFC dans cette Big 4 et j'en suis heureuse et fière. tout le monde se tutoie et les associés sont très humains. c'est très stressant comme emploi mais cela vaut la peine de se donner à fond. J'aimerai y retourner dans quelques années.

Pros

beaucoup d'opportunités

Cons

très stressant
