Plenty of opportunities in Advisory, Great people at the firm

Senior Associate - Advisory (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsAmazing pay. Absolutely zero complaints in the salary area. Clear career progressions (in consulting; can't speak to the other lines of business (e.g., Tax, Audit, etc.) ) Work with wonderful people, especially due to the acquisition of many smaller consulting firms (Diamond Consultants, PRTM, etc.) which bring that "small company" feel to a large organization.

ConsInternal services such as benefits hotlines, tech help and time & expense reporting are cumbersome and time consuming. As a consultant, there are always cons from being on the road and dealing with difficult clients, but PwC provides a great number of resources to help deal with this

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove internal sites and systems (e.g., benefits hot lines, requesting technical help, time & expense reporting) to help workers to be more productive. Also, Lotus Notes is a terrible email platform, and while it may be necessary for databases, the company needs to move to Outlook as Notes simply runs havoc on your computer; when working in high pressure, short deadline, consulting environments, this is a very sub-optimal tool. Finally, updating infrastructure (e.g., the Lenovo ThinkPads we use) and the software for all employees, as well as incorporating more features to PwC mobile (hoteling, etc.) would be beneficial. While PwC has recently come out with it's own app store, it is unclear how to begin using it for many employees. PwC should make a concentrated effort to communicate to employees how to get the best out of what is offered to them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
