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

    Pros

    Pros

    You get exposure to different departments and get a feel for what accountancy is like

    Cons

    unpaid extra hours worked. everyone is like a robot due to this. you can probably do better if you spent more time trying to start up your own business due to all of the unpaid hours!

    Advice to Management

    let people work 40 hours per week and not 60+hours..

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for self-development, incredibly varied work , fantastic people who care deeply and gives good people management / softer skills - which open up many opportunities outside the firm at senior levels.

    Cons

    Limited role models at senior levels to encourage progression, particularly given the ever increasing track to partner - heightens one's dilemma of whether the long hours, pressure and average pay/bonus (in comparison to partner profit share) is really worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Address the balance between internal BD and client facing staff - lost the balance of internal staff supporting the business and as a result are working in different directions with different objectives.
