A good employer, but requires too much of its employees.

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

Pros

Very good employer, good benefits, high level of knowledge at all levels, opportunity to work in global projects, and culturally diverse.

Cons

It requires long hours; you end up working 50 to 60 hours a week for a regular salary (low salary if we take into consideration all the stress, responsibility and hours devoted to the work). The environment is very demanding; you end up living only to work. If you have a family you will have to put work first, projects are demanding and usually need immediate assistance, (so it can mean working until very late, weekends, etc...) . It has an employee review process that is very strict and you are being compared to people who work 70 and 80 hours a week, so even if you work 50 you will still look like if you did not put enough effort. You actually feel like a machine, forget about your personal life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work/life balance is not really true; it is a place full of workaholics.

    Pros

    great work life balance, personable staff in advisory, great learning and development, opportunities to get involved in the community, really cares about their people

    Cons

    in FS Advisory, you can be put on the same project for years. This has been a trend recently and it can potentially ruin the career that you want. PwC prides it self on people being able to shape their own career, but this makes it hard.
