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

    Pros

    Great people, you learn A LOT, a good amount of vacation time, unlimited sick days, willing to work with you if you want to switch to a new position/line of service/office etc.

    Cons

    It can be hard to navigate all the different opportunities which can lead to missing out if you don't know what direction you want to take your career in, if you specialize too much it limits your opportunities, hours can be a bit much at times

    Advice to Management

    Explain more aspects of the business to interns/applicants so they can see all the opportunities the company offers rather than getting stuck in something they don't fully enjoy

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to pursue a variety of career paths. Supportive colleagues and generally a positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Although there are clear career paths for those who work in the client service sector, internal firm staff do not have as clear of a trajectory and find that in order to advance one must cross into various departments.

    Pros

    PWC offers a supportive envionment for its junior employees. The support you get is incredible and life-changing. Good place for go-getters
