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

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work with great people on interesting projects, flexibility to take time off when you need to, and 6 week paternity leave among other things.

    Cons

    Long hours, in PwC if you work 55 hours a week you're told how lucky you are compared to other people during busy season.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring additional staff to bring down the hours required from staff.

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of really great people. Great intellectual stimulation. Good pay and benefits. Flexibility.

    Cons

    It all depends on the individual partner(s) you are working for. There are some really great ones and some real jerks.

    Advice to Management

    We often hear about "the PwC way" but it is applied very inconsistently - specifically with respect to their people.

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, new offices, benefits good.

    Cons

    Doing away with role, not enough work and very what is given is very unchallenging. High EA management turnover. Not a promising future.

    Advice to Management

    Give EAs more challenging work rather than just T&E and general clerical work. Have firmwide equivalent ratios of partners to EAs.

    Pros

    Nice company to work for with good benefits, currently having office remodeled, upper management seems to care about it's employees.

    Cons

    Outsourcing areas to concierge, fewer EAs on sight.

    Advice to Management

    Having hands-on EA's with many years experience is a plus, you should move away from outsourcing too much

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

    Pros

    PwC will bend over backwards for its Interns. The experience is unforgettable, and the knowledge and experience you gain is unbelievable! Great place to start your career, and overall.

    Cons

    Like any job, the work is challenging, but not such a bad thing.
    Some people can be challenging to work with, but that is apparent anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing great opportunities to grow as professionals, and individuals.

    Pros

    The Company provides a good salary as you work your way up. There is great opportunity for advancement and they offer plenty of trainings that will assist you in various job tasks.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not good. The Company tries to work toward flexibility but it is hard to accomplish when there are so many hours of work to be done. Hours are strenuous especially during busy season.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that engagements are properly staffed and strive to lessening hours for employees. Properly plan in advance in order to make engagements more efficient.

    Pros

    A great name to have on your resume and comes with awesome experience opportunities at a wide variety of corporates. At PwC you will definitely be challenged and have ample knowledge resources at your disposal, to consult as needed.

    Cons

    Although talked about a lot, the work/life balance as a Sr. Associate is poor. Long hours are an expectation and these stresses are not limited to the year-end busy season. A recent transition in the rating system to achieve more transparency and real-time feedback - in my personal recent experience - has not succeeded as yet.
