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

    Pros

    Fast growing company, with lots of opportunity.Hardworking people, very team oriented, promotions are given to people who earn it not much is based on how much you're liked. Frequent and honest feedback is encouraged. Very good work life balance and based on how hard we work. Complete detachment is encouraged during PTO/Vacation.

    Utilizes new technology such as Goggle Mail to attract younger professionals. Great office party. Promotes physical and mental health.

    Cons

    Its hard work... which is not a con but if you're not a type A leader kind of person you won't succeed or at least you won't succeed rapidly.
    Sometimes management can get really busy so its hard to communicate but to counteract this PwC encourages reverse manage. Meaning lower staff can give feedback to upper staff and it isn't held against you because promotions are based on work quality. Very much a people life, but quality and numbers do not.

    No really cons. I love working here. I'm doing what I love with plenty of options to try other things.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage reverse feedback, but make sure the feedback is being heard and change being made
