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

    Pros

    I really have enjoyed working for PwC. Great company with great benefits and opportunities.

    Cons

    The new idea of having 'contract full-time' employees is a little disheartening because no matter how well you do in a TA position, there's no possible way to ever feel secure as each year, you're fighting for your job. With a boss who doesn't like the TA/EA position, it causes strife as well.

    Advice to Management

    Have bosses in roles that they like and want, otherwise you are giving them a platform that they don't really want and will not appreciate their employee's hard work.

    Ability to work on different kinds of projects, plenty of infrastructure support

    Not as much control over what you're working on even if you have expertise in a particular area...totally up to what projects have been sold

    Pros

    Great people and plenty of opportunity to grow your career in any direction that suits you. High standards for staff; flexible work practices (note: this does not mean light hours, they do expect you to put in a lot of time), quality leaders.

    Cons

    Really none...but this is probably the best professional services firm in the world, so be prepared to work hard. If you are looking for a 40 hour/week job you are looking in the wrong place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep running the business the same way.
