    Pros

    - Great team members. Very social, collegiate atmosphere.
    - Leadership is engaging.
    - Flexibility. Can work from anywhere.
    - Decent pay.

    Cons

    - May feel the need to "fit in". Pressure to attend a lot of work events after hours.
    - Very little racial diversity at the partner level.
    - Busy season hours are tough, even though they're pretty standard across the industry.
    - Rating system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Celebrate different personalities. Many PwC employees are extraverted, but it's important to value introverted qualities as well, i.e., focus, diligence, introspection, etc.

    Pros

    Great place to start your career
    Lots of great opportunities for diverse experiences if you get the chance and don't mind working long hours
    Given lots of responsibilities at low levels

    Cons

    Long work hours - required to work "overtime" just as status quo
    Nights and weekends are PwC's for the taking, work/life balance doesn't exist. People that claim work/life balance are internal firm services or are workaholics that see Sunday's off as a true benefit.
    Health care benefits are dismal. Much better at other places
    Compensation is below average when you consider the number of hours required
    You are placed where they want you to go. As an experienced hire they tell you that you are being hired for a unique skill set, but at the end of the day good luck getting to utilize it unless you're lucky enough to land a project that requires it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront and transparent during the interview process about what will happen when you join the firm.
