    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    PwC cares about their employees and goes above and beyone to look after them. There is a sense of family and the work is demanding so does not get boring.

    Cons

    Depending on which sector you are in, you are expected to work long hours which can conflict with your personal life. Assurance seems to be the worst for this, I have heard Tax is a lot less stressful area to work in.
