    Pros

    The people separate PwC from the rest of the Big 4 accounting firms. The team environment is second to none.

    Cons

    PwC is organized into various units meaning it's a significant challenge to work on projects outside of your area of expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PwC should continue to develop its talent, offer outstanding training, and maintain a team-oriented environment that makes it a great place to work.

    I have been working at PwC

    Pros

    Given the large size of the company, there are endless opportunities, for education, or transfers to other lines of service. Overall, a professional work environment where leaders seem to mean well.

    Cons

    It's easy to be lost in the shuffle - networking and performance matter. Work life balance sometimes just feel like an HR initiative, but there really are incredible perks (such as flexible work arrangements or part-time schedules) that you can make work for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The recession hit the company hard. Watch out for disgruntled employees who feel like they have been squeezed (both in terms of compensation and hours worked). This varies by office and practice, but seems like the firm is moving in the right direction these days.
