Pros

Smart and nice people, trying to improve work-life balance, some good opportunities

Cons

Advancement is generally pre-determined. Above average and average performers are paid comparably and advance the same. Compensation is below fair (considering hours and expectations in peak times). 401k policy is weak.

    Pros

    - Mature, free environment. It will suit souls who relish freedom in an office environment. You take control of your work and time.

    - Although most accountants look rather gloomy, they are generally nice people. Of 4 supervisors, 3 have been mostly patient and nice towards the temps. The other is also nice, but may be a little impatient. Isn't really a con since it is all down to individuals.

    - Occasional events boost staff morale

    - People are generally in smiles away from work, but serious and focussed when needed to

    - People are also generally good looking, if that helps. lol.

    - OT pays are high thus they often enforce that we leave on time. Yay work life balance! (even most regular staff do leave strict, and it is a good sight, really)

    Cons

    - Relative to KPMG, I heard the temps there actually get to do basic accounting jobs after going through a week of training. Here in PwC we handle strictly admin work (low-high level).

    - Came across some office politics and i was rather shocked. Albeit only one incident, for them to speak ill of their colleague in front of a temp comes across as rather demoralising. Then again, which office doesn't play its politics?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can do more to open up to staff. Yes office hours are for work, but a little socialising in the office makes for a whole lot of productivity.

    Pros

    Is the experience and training that you get from them is extensive and can be rewarding.

    Cons

    You can be here today dont get sick because you will be gone tommorow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management if you are going to terminate someone. Make sure its for a good enough reason. They could have been a really good asset to your team. If you would have take time to know the story.
