    Pros

    Your experience at the company is a crap shoot. A lot of it depends on the client you are assigned because that in turn dictates your team, workload, and difficulty of work. I was fortunate enough to work on a big client - challenging work and great teammates made my experience satisfying.

    Cons

    Public accounting dictates long hours but once you get passed that, I can't think of anything immediately. The pay could be better, of course.

    Pros

    10/10, firm is all about growing and development. Your coworkers will stress the importance of this and genuinely want you to grow

    Cons

    no real cons here honestly. The thing is anywhere you go that is as well-paying and prestigious as PwC, hours are going to be long. But this is offset by flex fridays and other programs they put in place to give you some free time off work during the offseasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return the fast-track promotion systems, you've decentivized the bottom totem pole to grow and excel.

    Pros

    -Good work environment
    -Generally management is very supportive
    -Opportunity to work in various different tax specialty areas.

    Cons

    -Lack of transparency regarding promotions and salary
    -Burdensome and unnecessary tools used to ensure that employees are being utilized and are on track with various projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really have any advice to give here. I think the Cavs are playing really well. They had a nice win in Memphis yesterday. I am looking forward to them getting back to the finals.

    Rewards hard workers with additional work. Staff are over worked and under appreciated. The firm has a staff are expendable mentality.

    Pros

    Great training, and you get wonderful experience with a lot of exposure to upper level management early on in your career. Wonderful place to start out, not sure if I would stay long term

    Cons

    Little work - life balance, people tend to work late, work weekends because it is part of the culture and not necessarily because there is work that needs to get done.

    Long hours. The job can take over your life and it's hard not to let it.

    Get all of your staff on board. Have a system to tell managers what they can do better by lower staff.
