Pros

You learn a lot and are exposed to many, many, tax rules. Your career has the potential to advance twice as fast as if you were in industry.

Cons

You have to work a lot of hours in order to shine, your utilization (chargeable hours) is a tool people are always useing to compare themselves to each other. The result is peple trying to one-up each other and we all end up working a lot more. (PwC managemnt is genius for that!) It is not impossible to escape that game, but you have to be someone that id very, very, smart and whose technical skills are above and beyond. (So you gotta be 1 of 100.)

    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.
