I have been working at PwC full-time for more than a year

Pros

1.) Community - I love the people I work with. They are brilliant at what they do, but more importantly they are fantastic people.
2.) Tremendous opportunity to learn and grow, exposure to senior leadership with clients.
3.) Personally, I enjoy the travel.

Cons

1.) Politics - the partnership structure creates huge challenges to effectively deliver work. If you need expertise from another practice area, good luck getting it easily.
2.) Leadership support - again, because of how the firm is structured, even if your leadership supports your work and what you're doing, it may not be valued by the rest of the firm. Particularly if it's not in the audit space.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remove the red tape that prohibits employees from moving around, but more importantly, that inhibits our ability to effectively deliver service to clients because we can't "share" expertise and we end up competing internally for projects.

    Pros

    The benefits of working for a big 4 accounting firm are amazing. They do everything they can to accomodate to their employees and they are very flexible with your personal committments outside of work.

    Cons

    One negative of working for a large company is that there are so many locations and thousands of employees that sometimes you feel like a number. I don't necessarily feel like that is the case in my individual office. Most of the time everyoine is very friendly and willing to help you out.

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Best people to work with - very bright and energized
    lots of opportunities for training and advancement
    very diverse working environment allows to try several different industries

    Cons

    work/life balance is tough
    have to be willing to do alot extra - not just harder hours, but travel and last minute changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the recent cost cutting and go back to a more national level with trainings at the associate and senior levels - that is one of the biggest reasons anyone joins a national firm
