    Current Employee - Auditor in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learning opportunities
    Great, known, clients
    Exposure to hard-working individuals (could be good or bad)

    Cons

    Long hours (almost every task is urgent)
    No work-life balance (similar to other reviews - if you have a life or a family, then this is not the ideal place, unfortunately)
    Under-staffing
    Pay not so competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staff
    Need to improve management/people skills (from senior associate level & up) & communication skills
    More work-life balance and flexibiity (not just in theory and goals but in practice)
    Productivity is not equal to long hours

    Former Executive Assistant in New York

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Executive Assistant in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Executive Assistant in New York, NY

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Good perks; like 1 week shut down during Christmas season
    - Flex time for admin professionals
    - Their brand is highly respected in the Finance industry
    - Company is strong and growing.. one feels job security

    Cons

    - Assistants do not get promoted into other roles. Once you're an assistant, you pretty much stay there
    - Low morale among assistants, but do not share it publicly
    - Unrealistic performance and rating system. Keeps people off getting decent raises or small bonuses.
    - Partners can be insignificant to their admin support. They create a high wall around them sending message of "I'm up here, you are down there". Lots of EAs feel that way.
    - Support ratio (5:1) does not equate compensation.
    - Very hard to be friendly with people. People can be very indifferent to establishing relationships.
    - Too big. Too many layers..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Performance systems for Executive Assistants should change. Perhaps use a survey system like many of the big banks or competitors.
    - Partners need to learn how to connect with their EAs as they are their first line of defense.
