    Good early experience, but too easy to get pigeon-holed and no real long-term development opportunities

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

    Pros

    High Profile Clients
    Some very smart colleagues
    Travel
    Educational Support

    This is a matter of good fortune - I was lucky enough to work in a small department that allowed me to travel the world and work on blue chip clients - however some of my colleagues never left the office and never set foot into a meeting with a client or partner.

    Cons

    Heavy workloads
    Poor planning and resource management
    Poor rewards - both financial and non
    Bad talent management and opaque appraisal/promotion system

    All in all there is a steep but good learning curve in the early years - however once you reach AM /Manager level additional skill learning drops off and it becomes more a delegation and review role.

    It is very easy to get stuck and specialised - if you are doing one thing well, and it helps out thise senior to you, it can be hard to move into a new area. Senior management get very protective and possessive of good staff and this can eventually lead to them leaving the firm if they want a change.

    Identifying and managing talent is something of a weak-point in the firm sadly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognise that you are losing key talented staff
    Make promotion/reward more merit-based and less "time served" based

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

    Pros

    PwC provides very good and structured training. It also has databases and support teams to assist in audit work. It is a great working place to encourage the staff to be independent and PwC focuses a lot on self learning.

    Cons

    PwC is a large firm, there are quite abut of administrative work to be done. The parking is very limited and very far. Going back to office during mid day quite troublesome, but that's due to limited land in kl.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would appreciate if pwC can provide shuttle at anytime of the day or a shuttle on standby as auditors need to travel between office and clients in a day sometimes.
