    People tend to work a lot even when it is not fully necessary.
    Up to a certain point, getting promoted is getting harder and harder (8-9 years experience) given the high number of partners.

    Pros

    Une grande entreprise avec des bureaux partout dans le monde, soi-disant beaucoup d'opportunités de mobilité interne, un salaire décent, en résumé ça à l'air bien.

    I worked at PwC as an intern (less than an year)

    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    C'est un endroit agréable comme la plupart des gens ne sont pas beaucoup plus âgés que vous la communication est plus ouverte. C'est aussi très dynamique dans certains services et en particulier dans celui où j'étais: gestion des actifs.

    It is a very pleasant environment to evolve into as most people are only a couple years older than you and that you can pretty much feel free to talk to anyone. It is also a very dynamic firm in certain areas and in particular the one i was into: Asset Management.

    Cons

    L'audit est assez répétitif et je ne conseillerais pas ce job sur le long-terme à moins de ne pas avoir le choix.

    Audit is fairly repetitive and I wouldn't advise to do that on the long term unless no other choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    L'entreprise marche assez bien, certains managers manquent de compétences et ne savent pas toujours comment diriger leurs employés quand ils les considèrent aussi comme des amis.

    The organization works fairly well, some manager maybe lack serious management skills as they don't always know how to deal with the people working for them who they are really friends with
