I worked at PwC as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Excellent set of people to work with, managers, peers, directors and partners. The work set out for me during the internship was of great quality and actually contributed to the success of the team and department which I was working in.

Cons

Can be rigorous, tedious work at times such as using certain pieces of software, e.g. Excel or otherwise. However this is at a basic level and to progress further within the division it is good to have a great foundation and knowledge of this area.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company had a strong focus on training and development, and the UK supports your qualification (ACA through the graduate route) financially and for time off.

    Cons

    First year's salary had not changed much (if at all) for about 5 years, the only pay increase you get is through going up the grades. The company encourages you to recoup more for 'additional efforts' from the clients but you generally don't get a share of these unless you are part of the senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Start addressing pay as an issue rather than avoiding them by talking about 'overall package' and 'people's experience' during annual reviews.
