    Pros

    Mobility program across different lines of service (give the possibility to temporarily make changes to explore different service offerings) and also global mobility to make experiences around the world

    Cons

    A lot of politics at higher level of staff (at least in the San Jose office).

    Audit-centric firm, not very suitable for consulting career.

    Advice to Management

    To better develop the business you should focus more on consulting (advisory) rather than audit

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good name recognition, training and development opportunities and resources, good level of client contact

    Cons

    Very political, no respect for personal life, long hours, employees are sometimes disrespected by management. Work is often not of a strategic nature. Of course, this varies very much by your group and is largely dictated by how the partner of your group treats his/her team. Compensation not commensurate with what you are expected to put in.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that partners and directors are trained in team management
