    "A long-term place to work if you work hard and don't mind small bonuses"

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

    Pros

    This is a truly diverse place to work where there is an earnest commitment to continued improvement and inclusion. Work-life balance is truly practiced with flexible work arrangements. This firm truly gives women a fair opportunity for advancement to the Partnership. Your peers will be hardworking, intelligent and have integrity. The firm stresses integrity in everything you do. Independence is taken seriously.

    Cons

    Compensation and bonuses are not always commensurate with performance and value added. There are Partners that are not pleasant to work with and do practice the firm's "Code of Ethics" and in that, there is nothing you can do about it since they are a Partner.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful about outsourcing of administrative functions. Outsourced technical support is not working. Be careful to make sure the FIT initiative does not repeat the mistakes that happened in 2009 and 2010 when there was mass exodus of talent.
