    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at PwC full-time

    Pros

    - abundance of opportunities to explore different industries on client projects
    - chance to align your personal interests with internal/external work
    - benefits of networking internally/externally, especially with extremely approachable Partners and Directors, are likely to extend to any area of your choosing within PwC and beyond

    Cons

    - lower pay than peer competitor firms (e.g. other Big 4s)
    - expenses and opportunities to transfer/attend internal events in London are increasingly limited
    - takes getting used to adjusting the fine work-life balance, especially given any personal career ambitions
    - long hours required at times

    Advice to Management

    Since gross pay levels for junior grades (up to 3-4 years after starting grad scheme) have been static for 5 years or so, it is high time to review and consider raising salaries.

    Managers were friendly, willing to teach and help. Team became close friends and there was a strong sense of community.
