Pros

Good experience. Lots of opportunity. You work at lots of companies and do a lot of different things. If you are interested in travel there are lots of opportunities. The people are in general very intelligent and hardworking. You build up a great network that will help you the rest of your career.

Cons

Stressful and heavy with politics. What you want to do in your career and what the partnership wants you to do might not necessarily be the same thing. Staffing is rough. You are held responsible for your utilization but you don't always have control over your staffing. You need to be flexible. The work is sometimes boring and unrewarding. I always felt a little under-paid in terms of how hard I worked vs. the salary I received.

Advice to Management

Pay your lower level staff better and give them more reasons to stick around after "putting in their time."

    Pros

    1. unlimited sick leave; you don't have to use your vacation time
    2. definite perks if you come in at the associate or above level...don't come in as an admin and think you will be able to "work" your way up to associate...The EA manager in my office made this sound like it was virtually impossible to do!

    Cons

    1. IFS staff - especially EAs are treated like children and are carefully monitored by the EA manager

    2. If you are an EA, your work hours are told to you and there is no working from home if the weather is bad or if you have a sick dependent to care for...the "work life balance mantra is a joke for IFS staff.

    3. You have nothing of substance to do...all day you will sit and enter time from arrogant people who you will have to "hassle" to get them to give you their time on a daily basis, there is some travel arrangements to be done for the people you support, and then there's preparing and processing the expense reports...if you ever have time to get to it. Literally, all day, all I did was enter time....

    4. EAs in the WNTS office have to use a formula when submitting their own time -- and get this, you will have to use the client codes off of the individual timesheets of the people you support. It will take you 2-3 hours just to enter your own time....what a waste of time and skills!

    5. Bottom line, don't come to PwC, if you are an experienced/seasoned admin professional -- it is a waste of time!!

    Advice to Management

    Treat the EA staff with more respect.
