    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Development and training is excellent. Opportunities to work in different industries, countries, internal management roles. Lots of great training and thought leadership. Friendly, extremely bright people on the whole. Great graduate programme. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Not enough high value work to sustain Senior Manager technical salaries. The juniors are so bright and low cost that they often get to lead work streams. Very big company, once been there long time too much noise and requests. Not valued for long term knowledge, coaching skills, or ability at job, although starting to get better.

    Advice to Management

    Decide how best to advance senior talent quicker.

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Arguably the most people focussed and collegiate culture of all the Big 4. Very friendly colleagues and there is a focus on projects to create a great experience for individuals, team and client - Focus on delivery and not face-time - trusted to work how you want - Leadership are always striving to further improve the PwC experience for staff - Work with very talented, driven and supportive colleagues -... Diverse and young - lots of energy and social opportunity - Best of the best clients with lots of opportunities for international travel if desired - Available training is second to none. However, training focuses much more on soft / consulting skills than technical - Promotion can be quick if you demonstrate the required attributes

    Cons

    - There can be quite a heavy emphasis on internal contributions (e.g. practice development, career coaching, thought leadership etc) on top of day to day client work . This is often required to hit top performance ratings given there'll always be colleagues to do this. - There can be a lot of beaurocracy and compliance matters to attend to (e.g. rigorous year end and promotion processes, lots of risk and quality... procedures to follow etc) which over time can become tiresome. - Recently my part of the firm has been running at low capacity and are not recruiting fast enough - this has limited choice of engagements in recent periods - Significant pay increases tend (though not exclusively) to be on promotion. The firm could be better at within grade pay-rises and moving high performers up the pay bands.
