Pros

PwC offers flexibility. You are treated as a professional and have the ability to manage your work and get done what you need to get done. You are surrounded by smart individuals and not bogged down by corporate red tape. The knowledge sharing is growing and access to knowledge resources is at your fingertips. Leadership is great at communicating and there is a great goal setting and review process in place. There is also the ability to see different parts of the practice and different parts of the world by going on assignment.

Cons

Hours, hours, hours. PwC makes every effort to provide a work/life balance, but it is definitely not a 9-5 job and you work hard / play hard.

    Pros

    The opportunities for professional development are excellent, the people are high quality, and the work is interesting and challenging. The training at PwC is top-notch, the knowledge base there is excellent and if you want to learn, there are so many opportunities to do this. The firm has such a wide range of specialty areas that you can pursue any number of careers, all while working for the same company.

    Cons

    The work/life balance could still be better, but it has come a long way. The firm has tried very hard to implement programs to help its people have more personal flexibility, but these programs still require the support of the partners supervising others, and this is a slow process of change. The "Big 4" still remain the place to work if you'd like to enjoy great rewards, but this still comes with the trade-off of long hours and a relatively stressful environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your people and support a wide variety of work/life flexibility options. Continue working to make it easier for working mothers to come back part-time.

    learn to take a step back and review information about staff from a new perspective, especially when dealing with supervisors transfering between departments
