    Awesome work life balance. They promote flexible working which is great and you can really tailor your work day around your personal commitments.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure to hard working peers, managers and partners. Work with many young people starting their career, rare as you move to industry. Exposure to variety of clients and industries. Global network of firms has possible chance for international secondments (limited chance though). Great brand on resume.

    Cons

    Longer hours for less pay than equivalent (or easier) industry jobs. Sometimes must work with terrible peers, managers or clients. Mostly random what clients or engagements you work on, and this essentially determines your experience in audit. Limited incentive to go above and beyond in your work.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some sort of incentive for improvement in work/engagements.

    I have been working at PwC full-time

    Pros

    Great place for growth and learning.

    Cons

    Work life balance, since it's one of the big 4 it's always expected to work overtime. The performance benchmark grows every year, it's becoming harder to achieve and be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people. The culture of performance based on overtime should not be the case.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PwC's culture and opportunity exceeds most companies. The flexibility (outside of busy season) is great in comparison to other companies. You can climb through the company quite quickly in your first five or so years. As well, the networking opportunities with many individuals is a great.

    Cons

    Busy season involves a lot of overtime hours and stress. The busy season is stretching into the November time frame as well. So there are four or five months a year that you must plan to be working long hours. Also the pay is not that great for the amount of time you put in.

    Advice to Management

    Spreading busy season hours amongst team members. Some of the big jobs work longer hours in comparison to smaller jobs. Also, more perks such as recognition for overtime and bonus days off in the summer.
