    Pros

    -Good compensation for first job out of college.
    -Coworkers and management are genuinely nice people.
    -Management spares no expense on team events and dinners.
    -Flex time allows us to work from home when we can.

    Cons

    -Work life balance is non-existent.
    -Often feel like I'm busy but not productive. Everyone is in the habit of just putting out one fire after another.
    -Travel to very unexciting places for weeks at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Make work life balance a priority for all your teams. Being busy is not being productive - provide training for everyone from senior managers on down on how to be productive, how to manage projects, and how to communicate effectively, so that we can do work that's important and not spin our wheels until 10pm every day.

    Pros

    it;s a flexible and variable work environment with great opportunities to progress and good people. also allows travel and international placements

    Cons

    you will work long, antisocial hours for less pay than you could achieve in industry and the higher you get in the firm, the more your job becomes about selling

    invest in technology as pwc is far behind its competition in terms of capability. also provide better sales training as that is what differentiates high performers

    Pros

    Good salary bumps as you move through ranks
    Can build a large network fairly quickly
    Work on interesting clients or transactions that make the papers

    Cons

    Client demands

    Advice to Management

    Don't corporatize otherwise genuine efforts to care about employees. Everything doesn't need to have an acronym or be called an initiative.
