    I have been working at PwC as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Suitable training and support is provided for most roles. Flexibility - rotation between departments is a possibility for the first 6 months, giving you time to decide which department you are most comfortable in. There seem to be a lot of benefits for employees as well as flexibility as to how you receive those benefits. Ideal for self-driven individuals. Abundant opportunity for networking and career progression.

    Cons

    If you are not self-motivated, ambitious and strong-willed it can be easy to fall off the radar. Can be demanding in terms of working hours as well as study hours for ACA qualification.

    Current Employee - Client Administrator in London, England
    Current Employee - Client Administrator in London, England

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

    Pros

    PwC cares about their employees and goes above and beyone to look after them. There is a sense of family and the work is demanding so does not get boring.

    Cons

    Depending on which sector you are in, you are expected to work long hours which can conflict with your personal life. Assurance seems to be the worst for this, I have heard Tax is a lot less stressful area to work in.
