Positive Outlook

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.

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

    Pros

    - brand name
    - working with the best and brightest
    - great training and coaching opprtunities
    - build solid foundation to launch an accounting career

    Cons

    - underpay considerng the long hours and work weekends
    - elitst mentality
    - poor work life-balance
    - revolving door. Lack of long-term retention programs and career development opprtunities for those not interested in making partners

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest in people for longterm and fix the attrition to build a team of experienced accounting professionals. Under the existing model only the partners have solid experience and the rest are mostly young and inexerienced and just assing through.
