    One of the very good pros are: work life balance. You can't find similar culture in any big 4 for sure.

    Cons

    No specific rotation in assignment, resulting in no new knowledge or skills improved also contributed to boring worklife.

    I worked at PwC

    Pros

    Within my department (IT department or GTS), I feel that the working environment was really supporting where every person was extremely helpful, fun and solid which suppresses the stress level and keeps employees morale to all time high. The upper level management provide satisfying feedback and recognition. They hold a staff assessment every month, therefore, I have a chance to improve in the area where I am lacking the most. They were extremely supportive as well. Every employee has a chance to prove their ability in leading a project.

    Cons

    Generally, career advancement in every PwC's line of services were satisfying, however, it was slower within my department. There were not so many open opportunities for career advancement under the internal support services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should be more concern with staffs under the internal support services department.
