    I have been working at PwC part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The firm is progressive in its approach to markets and truly embraces diversity of its employees. Internal mobility between various roles and functions is actively encouraged and there is generally a strong focus on the staff's well-being. Supports agility and innovation, actively accommodates well various forms of flexible working.

    Cons

    Technologically it's running ahead of its time - rolled out gmail for business, webinars, cloud working etc with quite a few teething problems which can be quite frustrating for Generations X&Y (millennials love it though).
    With long term low levels of graduates recruitment into tax/consulting it can feel seriously under-resourced in places.
    Bonuses are relatively low.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more grads and HAPPs!
