    Pros

    In certain roles within the company, you are able to have lots of flexibility in your schedule. Benefits are good as well. You have 3-4 weeks of vacation time which is generous compared to many companies. As the policy is not abused and used properly, unlimited sick days take the worry away about having to use vacation days. The firm typically shuts down between Christmas and New Years which is great time off. If you are in the external client service tax or assurance side of the business there is a steady progression and opportunity to advance. If you are a mom, there are lots of roles that allow you to work on a flexible work arrangement schedule at a reduced workload (ie. 75%).

    Cons

    If you are in an internal role, the compensation in not competitive and opportunity for raises and bonus are not there. The company overall seems to be "reactive" more than "proactive" when looking at issues. The 401k matching is not very competitive either.

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

    Pros

    Wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon. Strong emphasis on relationship building and networking. Diverse culture. Revived focus on employee retention, onboarding, training, and supporting new employees to integrate and be successful. Solid base comp.

    Cons

    Long hours despite what was advertised about work and personal life balance. Culture can foster very direct, sometimes coarse interactions. Culture is competitive, extremely political, high judgmental, and word spreads among the grapevine quickly. Second chances...? Theme is "watch your back" at all times.

    Advice to Management

    Retaining top talent can be improved with continuing to develop future leaders who can be personally vested in coaching mentoring and developing talent in a way that promotes bringing out the best qualities, performance and to build high performance teams. Train mid-level management to be genuine, supportive, and improving coaching and mentoring capabilities.
