    Pros

    Being a private firm allows many employee positives not possible with a public entity (not looking at each month, quarter, etc.). In addition, the senior leadership is passionate about the firm and the people.

    Cons

    Ambiguous performance measures. My practice was acquired, and after 3+ years they still could not really understand how to measure (hence reward) for performance. They can be somewhat slow in key areas when people are integrated due acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upon any acquisition, immediately remove that leadership layer from control and place one or more true PwC Partners as oversight. Leaving teams alone to run "as-was" creates gaps and prevents the people from quickly integrating into the PwC culture. From a risk\business perspective, removing that previous layer also exposes the previous mistakes, which become current mistakes from being hidden from view by PwC. Naming one or more of them as Partner\Principal does not really reflect talents nor expose the existing skill deficiencies. I know of one former "leader" who simply attends meetings and name drops, but really remains an empty suit after all these years.
