Current Employee - Manager in Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at PwC full-time (more than an 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

    ffer support for an excellent post graduate qualification. the chartered accountancy qualification is widely regarded the world over and allows you to work in other countries.

    Cons

    There is solid (if slow) career progression available. Most people seem to get promoted based on working a set number of years, rather than by actual skills available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about involving non-managers in the decision making process, and having some respect for senior associates who are in there promotion year
