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

Pros

- Competitive Pay
- High Performing Culture
- Great Career Development

Cons

- Workload can be tremendous
- At lower levels there is not enough incentive to be a high performer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

On the highest level possible, I feel like the firms goals are misaligned. The notion of becoming the quality firm, growth firm, and flexibility firm all at once is counter intuitive. The burden is being felt on your highest performers and as a result I would expect to see abover average turnover amongst your top performers over the next 2 years.

    Rewarding learning experience; public accounting firms are still struggling to find the right way to foster flexibility

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can get a great learning experience in a very short period of time. You will work with some very bright individuals. If you want it, you can continually get challenged

    Cons

    If you are a high performer, beware. The firms have no way to reward those people who work well above and beyond others. High performers are abused and not rewarded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out proper forms of recognition for individuals who work above and beyond their peers. Don't have some individuals working 80-90 hours a week, while just around the corner, their peers are working 40 hour weeks - Put pressure on managers to speak up when staffing is well understaffed. Also - I would suggest you be less greedy at the top of the pyramid; spread those funds throughout your pyramid and hire more individuals; you will not lose your best people.
