    Pros

    Schedule is very flexible
    The company is very young overall, surrounded by other recent grads

    Cons

    Long hours during certain times of the year
    Partners can seem a bit disconnected from the associates doing the brunt of the work

    Advice to Management

    Connect more with the associates, a small bit of recognition goes a very long way.

    Pros

    I think that the training offered at PwC is very in depth and offer great experiences to learn and expand on your knowledge. I also think that there is a big push to work on flexibility and the new strategies are starting to become more accepted. The teaming within the offices that I have worked in are great and it makes some of the long hours more bearable.

    Cons

    I think the work/life balance still needs a lot of work. There is a big push for the people to be constantly busy and with non-standard busy seasons the hours add up quickly. I think the vacation and holidays that are given are great when you actually have the time to use it. I believe that you can either push utilization or budget but not both as that is an impossible battle.

    Advice to Management

    I think that the biggest issue is work/life balance. I understand that this is big 4 accounting and that you will be required to work many hours but I think it would be best to be upfront with the people as to what the "real" expectations are for total hours.
