    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They invest in your qualifications, train you well, you work with smart people, high level of job security, can work internationally, can progress easily, can move teams to find one you find more interesting.

    Cons

    Not so much contact with people, not much creativity - work can be dull, a lot of computer work, sometimes unpredictable and long hours, need to be highly educated but receive low wages per hour until you get to Director level.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to be more individualistic and discuss their feelings instead of being robotic, provide better mental wellness support.
