    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work with smart people, challenging and varied work, lots of exposure to different client problems.

    Cons

    Consulting is demanding as you have to juggle multiple projects. Difficult to feel like you’re making a difference sometimes because work is very focused around client projects as opposed to executing on a PwC strategy.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent exposure to interesting and challenging work Invests a lot in developing employees through training Amazing ecosystem of different types of professional disciplines to lean on for support Diverse team of different backgrounds and age - helps team morales and overall work experience Lots of opportunities to face clients at the highest levels of management

    Cons

    Absolutely love it here but salary is the only reason I won't stay forever. Hours may be long but work flexibility makes up for it

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work but improve on compensation to be competitive - not against other big 4 (as few leave to go there) but the overall market at large.
