    Get involved in Big projects
    Overall some really great People
    Great Talent
    Good variety

    Not very embracing of diversity
    Very political
    Work/life balance is hard to get

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at PwC (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, and working atmosphere. They'll give back to you a lot. Monthly office drinks. Meals at the start and end of big jobs. Social events. Work perks like like insurance, healthcare plan etc.

    Cons

    Lower starting salary than many competitors. Tough hours during busy periods and overtime unpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to find much. The lower salary is justified as they invest thousands of pounds in educating you to pass your CA exams. They're paying you salary, while they're paying you to go to college and earning them £0 revenue.
