I worked at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You need experience at a public firm in order to get your CA and make a ton of friends in the process. PwC people seem to be more social and "fun" than other big firms (at least in this city).

Cons

Huge workload and lots of (unpaid) overtime. Can be extremely stressful at times, but I guess that's the price you pay for attaining a CA.

    Pros

    - brand name
    - working with the best and brightest
    - great training and coaching opprtunities
    - build solid foundation to launch an accounting career

    Cons

    - underpay considerng the long hours and work weekends
    - elitst mentality
    - poor work life-balance
    - revolving door. Lack of long-term retention programs and career development opprtunities for those not interested in making partners

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest in people for longterm and fix the attrition to build a team of experienced accounting professionals. Under the existing model only the partners have solid experience and the rest are mostly young and inexerienced and just assing through.
