    I have been working at PwC full-time

    Pros

    - global access
    - prestigious and well-known clients, being able to get your foot in the door at many impressive places.
    - Support given for training towards ACA exams (study leave and dedicated tutors)
    -social teams set up to help integrate into office, lots of events in the calendar!

    Cons

    - Starting as a senior associate straight out of university is a little daunting, when you join other seniors in your "year group", having not gone through the programme, have already settled into their routine and social groups - so you really have to push yourself to get some inclusion. But other than this the firm really do want you to succeed and offer all opportunities to discuss any needs that may arise. There is some consideration that you have been out of practice for half a year, but this needs to be stressed.

    Advice to Management

    Increase awareness/market the course better within the firm and maybe introduce an intermediary level between associate and and senior associate for the transition period.
