    Pros

    They offer a lot of opportunities and training. You can work with a varied team on a wide array of client engagements.

    Cons

    The leadership tends to be sub-par and Manager grade are not engaged with their juniors. The salaries in the UK are very low and there is less of a chance for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Be present and engaging with your team. Do not forget what it was like to be a junior staff member. Stay involved in client work and remain up-to-date with developments.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    I joined the consulting graduate scheme. It was an excellent start to my career. Some work is interesting and some is very boring. Work life balance is also varied, I’ve done 70h weeks and 35h weeks. Really depends on project.

    Cons

    The pay has not kept up with career progression. You will learn a lot but don’t prepare for this to be a long term career move. Progression can be limited. The work is massively varied, depending on what resourcing put you on.

    Advice to Management

    The firm don’t seam to care about attrition at SA level in consulting which is massive. It would be better to pay and treat people fairly so you retain knowledge and good people rather than having such a high headcount turnover.
