No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Learning opportunities
Great, known, clients
Exposure to hard-working individuals (could be good or bad)

Cons

Long hours (almost every task is urgent)
No work-life balance (similar to other reviews - if you have a life or a family, then this is not the ideal place, unfortunately)
Under-staffing
Pay not so competitive

Advice to Management

Listen to staff
Need to improve management/people skills (from senior associate level & up) & communication skills
More work-life balance and flexibiity (not just in theory and goals but in practice)
Productivity is not equal to long hours

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

    Pros

    You learn things and have the great resources. If you find that you enjoy these benefits, then there is no better firm than PwC. PWC also has a great culture and is very flexible (work home on Fridays etc.)

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season, and it is very difficult to achieve a good work-life balance. With the corporate cell-phone, you are kind of on call all the time.

    Advice to Management

    More empathis on work-life balance. Considering the long hours & very little work-life balance, the compensation needs to be improved.


  2. "Great environment and people"

    Great environment and people. Partners are excellent.

    Cons

    Work load not distributed equally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep with one plan for a year
