Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Brand recognition, working with smart and motivated people, big recognizable clients.

Cons

Leadership sends empty thank you emails. Lack of recognition and appreciation will continue to lead to inability to retain top performers. Extremely hierarchial which limits new thought and drives canned solutions. Learning and development opportunities are limited. Poor compensation for high ratings and low in comparison to peers. Extremely political.

Advice to Management

Understand what it means to truly recognize and appreciate your people. Empty thank you's are not going to continue to allow the practice to grow. Delivering services with top performers will. Revisit compensation practices. Listen to the staff. Provide formal training that is worth the time of your staff; most of the training is a joke.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great experience working on large companies. SEC financial reporting experience. Start career with other people straight out of college so you have a great support network with many other people in the same situation as you.

    Cons

    It is always a difficult time trying to meet client filing deadlines. You lose approximately 4-5 months out of the year working 55-60 hours a week.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Brand name
    - Global recognition
    - Financial stability

    Cons

    - Work life balance
    - Not willing to experiment by attempting different approaches
    - Salary range is low. This was one of the primary reasons for my exit from PwC.
    - Very poor immigration policy (green card and H1 policy)
    - Every year the organization spends millions of dollars in the name of advisory university to train their employees. But the course work at this week long camp is outdated. The courses offered need to be improved based on the latest market trends.
    - The performance appraisal process remains confusing to date. For a year, I had 4 performance reviews - 3 of them had exceeds expectations while one had met expectations. My salary raise and bonus however did not happen as expected. My partner indicated that I was on the "cusp" with many others and hampered my chances to get a good raise/bonus.

    Advice to Management

    - Increase risk appetite
    - Study the market trends and tailor the training courses accordingly
    - Improve the immigration policy
