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

Pros

Location and the name on the CV. Can meet some good people, good for accounting people.

Cons

Full of people who think they add value but in actually fact its just because account sign off a needed to become compliant and inline with HMRC. The fees are way to high for our clients and they literally pay for the name. Everyone here walks around here as if they are special. Put it this way everyone in this building is the same yet everyone thinks they change the world, but they are all ACCOUNTANTS at the end of the day, they are a dime a dozen and the work is boring. get ready for late nights and endless testing

Advice to Management

Sort out the above. decrease the fees

    Pros

    Stable career plan that will lead you to at least Manager if you do the right moves and get the right contacts, where it is easier to move to a client's job. It thus works as a career fast ladder.

    Cons

    Potential career moves depend too much on your personal relationship with your direct manager and not that much on work quality. Assignements can vary widely based on department and luck, with some projects lasting for years and others - more interesting - for a few months.
    The potential to move between projects is very limited, and can burn people that expect consulting to offer a broad view of the industry and project types.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your employees objectives and ambitions and try to help them to attain them.
    Provide rotation into long projects, so employees do not end up bored at their posts.
    Employees will be happier and more productive in the end.
