    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at PwC as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    - 2 (3 if asked to stay for overtime) paid 15 min breaks, 1 hr lunch. Furthermore can take unlimited restroom breaks anytime needed.
    - If asked to work overtime, food is provided almost 100% of the time, good food like Chili's, La Madeline, Black Eyed Peas, etc.
    - Supervisors are very patient and always willing to help with any call, can easily escalate any call to a supervisor if you don't know the answer.
    - Can request any # of days off for emergencies/job interviews/doctor visits etc.

    Cons

    Very rare to get promoted to permanent. 1 temp every 5+ years or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shouldn't choose to retain people past contract date based on favorites. People that worked hard and knew their stuff got extended along with people that didn't know the answer to basic questions as well as those who missed a lot of days of work/came to work late.

    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.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You dont need advice, you know what you are doing.
