    Former Employee - Manager in Seoul (South Korea)

    I worked at PwC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It's a nice place to get trained in an early career. Despite of lower fee, there are still enough tasks to get this job done.

    Cons

    Have to accept quite lower package and prestige. This discount affects the salary at the next company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top managements should be aware of where this firm is heading. There is actually no mid- and long-term strategy. This may be because of partnership structure.
