    Pros

    Very wide and deep network both within UK and internationally. Great desire to be open, transparent, inclusive and indeed are in many cases. Depth of expertise.

    Cons

    Not always as aggressive as competitors (quiet reserved style and will not be bolshy about experience), which means should really have more impact or directness to market.

    Advice to Management

    Need to connect the vision with day to day. Need to ensure agenda for inclusiveness and widening intake or promotions does not come at the expense of others or causes resentment or overlooks other capable people.

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

    Pros

    There are lots of things to get involved in on top of your day job including sports and societies. It’s a very inclusive workplace. The offices are great. They are always investing in their people with training and the best technology and offices etc. Almost everyone I have met is really friendly and I’ve gained some amazing friends.

    Cons

    I have to travel lots with work so I am rarely at home. This is exciting in some ways but it also gets tiring. Because projects are often only 3 months, it makes it hard to plan far in the future.

    I have been working at PwC full-time

    Pros

    Great retail practice - working across the board (with pureplays, stores heritage) in the UK and also internationally. With our brand we get across across the boardroom and deliver really fundamental change - operating model through to tech transformation. But what's really cool is that we do it with the Experience first - the experience of the customer and the people.

    Cons

    Mobility is a must so be ready to commit to travel during the week

    Advice to Management

    keep evolving our structures we can immerse people in sectors as early as possible in their careers

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

    Pros

    There is a wide range of work, clients, and colleagues within PwC Consulting across Strategy, Deals, Operations, Finance, People & Organisation, Programme Management, Risk, Technology, Analytics, etc. etc. The culture is also highly supportive of people finding their own way and spending time learning about lots of different areas and sectors, which helps one to get a varied experience and broad skillset at the start of your consulting career.

    Cons

    The size of PwC, while it affords great opportunities and variety, does mean that it can be challenging at times to get recognition or to find one's own way through that, especially if having a difficult time outside of work or on a current project. This means that highly proactive people can often flourish, but at times it can be a challenge to keep focused on building your network, especially if that's not your natural skill or behaviour set.

    Advice to Management

    Recognition and Reward are common themes in all companies. Great progress has been made during my time in the firm around transparency on this point, but this should remain a focus so that all of our people feel clear on how the partnership as well as other fee earners' reward is calculated and how this links to business and individual performance.

    Pros

    Attracts ambitious, top tier talent - provides great learning and development opportunities by sector - coherent strategy to market - plenty of opportunities for diverse experiences and markets

    Cons

    Important to find your port otherwise can feel like being a small fish in a big sea

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the bonus process for levels upto manager

    Pros

    The exposure to interesting and varied clients; a fun graduate cohort; a fair interview process and access to great training opportunities. The office in London is a great working environment too.

    Cons

    If you're not adaptable then shifting between client site/ main office and travelling might be quite tough.
