    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great network of expertise, often hidden, all around the globe, generally all very helpful in sharing insights.
    Strong brand presence to help open doors and build industry networks
    Secondments and work around the world is encouraged (and well worth taking)

    Cons

    Some glacial internal process.
    Ever present challenge of a regulated industry and the partnership model in getting resources allocated ...and then committed.
    Erratic review process of value generation, particularly when looking to revenues outside your immediate P&L

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond the technical expertise at levels below Partner, try to encourage the enthusiasm for commercial growth from Managers, think of the business drivers.

    People are easy to get along with
    Training fantastic and covers wide breadth

    Hierarchical structure evident

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

    Pros

    If you’re proactive, dedicated and want to develop they’ll love you.. a lot of people who genuinely care about your well being. Certain parts of the form are Heirachical but a lot you could just walk into a Partners office and have a chat - I always have! Great to have on CV and it opens a lot of doors elsewhere

    Cons

    Tend to get dropped in at the deep end - don’t expect to have your hand held. Not really a huge sense of team spirit but I do a job that’s a bit of a one man band. Can work long hours but suppose that’s everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Have a partner refresh - some are stuck in their ways and not fit to lead in an ever changing and developing technological environment

    Be less self-focused in progressing through the firm and more genuine and down to earth
