Job Culture
Fear-based, highly politicised culture from the top down
Director, Risk & Quality (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW4 May 2016
The firm's management behaviours vary widely from its stated values.
A typical day at work involved continual interruptions making it impossible to execute on agreed plans.
Management is chaotic. Everyone is pushing their own barrow and trying to earn "brownie points" with the CEO. Disruption comes primarily from within the firm's IT areas.
Outsourcing has become a sacred mantra regardless of the lack of quality and increased costs that it brings. Staff call these things out at their own peril, despite the firm proclaiming one of its values to be "Openness and Authenticity".
Most partners are miserable but take solace from the huge money they earn.
My co-workers were very hard-working but were exploited by working very long hours of unpaid overtime and having more and more responsibilities piled upon them.
The hardest part of the job was trying to juggle too many disparate roles and projects with insufficient resources
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to support the practice with excellent client service, particularly the lawyers within the firm.
Pros
Flexible work arrangements
Cons
Long hours, blurring of the lines between work-life balance.

Information Technology (Former Employee) –  Melbourne City Centre VIC8 February 2016
From a select few managers i learnt about having the upmost level of integrity in my work, how to make clients trust and work together to provide the best possible outcome.
I worked with the best of the best in our IT department. My co-workers are what i miss most about the job.
The flexible working was the best thing to happen to us, being able to work from home and pick up kids from school is invaluable.
Pros
great perks, quarterly lunches, large xmas party
Cons
low salary

High pressure, good opportunities for varied work experience
Resource Planner (Current Employee) –  Brisbane, QLD1 March 2015
Solutions based role, building teams of human resources to perform audit and related review work for external clients. Mapped bookings using the firm's resourcing tool, resolved booking clashes, identified opportunities to utilise staff across team requirements, maintained excellent records, scheduled training developed and maintained excellent relationships with management and beyond.

The vast majority of the people at PwC really do make the place a good work environment.

The hardest part of the role was the sheer volume of work teamed with a lack of clear and attainable goals. Better suited to a full time employee.

The most enjoyable part of the role was communicating with the teams, building relationships, and finding great solutions.
Pros
Large network of professional services firms; global mobility attainable
Cons
Unreasonable expectations for part time employees.

Good work culture and environment but no growth opportunities
Service Desk Analyst (Current Employee) –  Melbourne, VIC17 August 2014
A typical day at work would involve handling tickets and calls raised by internal employees in IT issues related to software, hardware and other products supoorted by the firm. It also involves ensuring action ing tickets and answering calls within the SLA.
The role allowed me to develop my negotiation, communication and writing skills.
Management ensured that right training is provided as per the new product relase or updates. Various competions, xmas, new year parties along with team get together are being organized.
My co-workers are a amazing bunch of people who are from various diverse culture and were very very helpful.
Hardest part of the role was to effeciently handle clients expectations within the stipulatd time frame.
Most enjoyable part is to hear from the clients "You are Awesome".
Pros
Flexibility with shift timings and option to Work from Home
Cons
No growth opportunities
