    Pros

    PwC has great name recognition, hires the best and the brightest and provides ample opportunity for one to stretch in areas outside of one's comfort zone.

    Cons

    The cons primarily revolved around the way the company was organized around Audit, Tax and Consulting. Each of the organizations operated as silos and it was very difficult to truly have team collaboration because of the revenue split between the partners on projects. This drove bad behavior by teams to not bring in the relevant specialists on certain engagements which would short change clients. Additionally there was no distinction between selling and delivery. As one advanced in the firm, the emphasis became about revenue generation rather than project delivery.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be an organizational model that will foster service delivery that will allow for alternate career paths between delivery and sales. Training and opportunity around both will make a big difference in the output generated by staff.

    Pros

    Learning, learning and learning! You have plenty of opportunity to learn GAAP, FASB and all other accounting guidances by auditing various clients. Coaching is super emphasized in this firm. So one gets good coaching very often. Also you are encouraged to coach junior staffs through which you practise your coaching and management skill. The firm also provides many trainings to employees which keep you updated. In short, this is a place you can accelerate your career path.

    Cons

    Very poor work life balance in PwC. Although the firm always talk about it, no body can get really get it. Due to the high pressure of work, inter-personal relationships are difficult sometimes especially during busy season. Your senior or managers can be rude. Many new associates had experience of crying.....

    Advice to Management

    I think it's worth the effort to work on the 'culture' of PwC in order to attract better kids.
