Yes. I know several people who work there quite well - all bankers. It’s kinder and gentler than most people’s conception of IB, both due to intrinsic reasons and by virtue of being headquartered in Chicago, not NYC. But not by much. It is still banking.

I worked for Deloitte and currently with PwC. I’m not comparing both but PwC is too worse in terms of work life balance and work culture. If Deloitte is given 90, PwC might get something between 20-30 is what I feel. All they need is robots working for their tasks. I do agree it depends on the manager sometimes and trust me he is the worst. Any comments on work culture and work@life balance in PwC SDC Bangalore ?? Is it only me or is there any one who shares similar views?? PwC
