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

    Pros

    Steady growth path, flexible work, incredible business exposure.

    Cons

    -Work hours can be exhausting as you find yourself making up work on the weekends.
    -Multiple reporting managers, with tight schedules.
    -Enough work that you can never fully get "caught up", which makes your compensation seem very small (example: 2500 billable hours; Associate Salary roughly 60k (major us city); $24 an hour. 2nd/3rd year associates make $1 less an hour than interns and do not receive overtime.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to front your company like a top-tier a finance firm, you need to either hire more people to complete the work, or improve your compensation to match the hours.
