A lot of work. Minimal reward until you make it big.

Pros

PwC offers vast resources and experiences. The compensation is probably the highest of the Big 4, and seems to be a continued area of focus. Flexibility is the new buzz word.

Cons

Compensation is lower than industry. Review process is highly subjective, regardless of the "transparency". Often difficult to utilize opportunities available.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    - Decent pay after a few years
    - If on a travel project, you'll work all the time, but make lifelong connections
    - Opportunity to work with VERY BRIGHT and VERY TALENTED people if you're on the right project.

    Cons

    - Politics
    - LOTS of effort required on your part to get visibility, get staffed on a project, get experience when on that project.
    - Few people to learn from
    - Some people get promoted before they're ready due to tenure with the firm which results in poor management.
    - If you're good, management will take advantage of that and give you as much work as possible. (80+ weeks.) It is not uncommon to work every weekend and on vacations. You have to try very hard to find a team that recognizes work/life balance and a need to recharge.

    Advice to Management

    - Promote based on ability
    - Improve HR to be more consistent across the practice.
    - Help new hires to be onboarded and utilized ASAP.
    - Provide more technical training at the start so people advance with a technical skillset instead of just general management skills. Encourage technically competent people to stay by providing competitive pay and don't worry about if they're bringing in work, because their work is winning us more work indirectly.
