    I have been working at PwC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture with awesome people and clients. PwC gives you the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills at a way faster rate than industry. The company also really cares about its people and all you have to do is speak up.

    Cons

    Public Accounting in general means you have to work hard and long hours sometimes to get things done. Travel can be excessive too. But most people know that going in.

    Advice to Management

    Staff engagements better so that there aren't two people working on a job that should have more people, otherwise people get over worked and the client may not be happy with the results

    Pros

    A great opportunity to work for an industry-leading company that services Fortune 500 companies, and to receive the experience required to build your future successful career. The company offers a flexible career progression model based on teamwork, collaboration, excellence and diversity.

    Cons

    The experience also includes work under a constant pressure to meet tight deadlines, managing multi-tasking assignments on daily basis, very long hours, no life/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    As any corporation of this size, PwC also involves a lot of political games behind the scene, this situation may discourage some talented people, who don’t possess necessary qualities to play those games; therefore my advice is to create an environment, where such talents would be promoted regardless any circumstances.

    Pros

    Possibility of upward movement in the company, friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Unclear who to go to when seeking help or advice, ambiguous hierarchy.

    Advice to Management

    Giving more clear-cut avenues to access other with questions could be helpful.
