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

    Pros

    - You don't do anything from May through September.
    - Everyone in the group abuses their corporate card's.
    - You can "work from home" after a couple of years, which basically means answer calls from the golf course.
    - You won't find that you're alone in your frustrations and dislike for the group as everyone feels the same way.

    Cons

    - Very political annual reviews. If you're not one of the 5% management likes you're career is over there. Also you spend 40 hours making your file and in the end management spends 30 seconds reviewing it as their decisions are predetermined.
    - The work performed could be done by a 5th grader with basic knowledge of excel. This is not a banking group and not a management consulting group. If you want to do banking or consulting look elsewhere.
    - You have to perform hours of "handties" which are basically using a color pencil to check every number on a page with thousands of numbers on it. Require ZERO intelligence.
    - For half the year you work as hard as your iBanking friends and make half as much.
    - Annual bonuses are a JOKE.
    - The office moral is terrible. Every other week a coworker leaves and everyone else there is interviewing and trying to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stop with the political reviews and promotions
    - Consider actions to take to curb turnover.
    - Try to boost office moral but other means than happy hours where everyone talks about where their interviewing.
    - Assign people to projects / clients they're interested in.
    - Eliminate the current deployment method and restructure it so the right people get assigned to the right jobs.

    Pros

    You learn a lot about accounting

    Cons

    The problem with PwC is that if you want to have a life or a family this isn't the place. PwC is full of people that are committed to their work and/or want to land a sweet job somewhere else after making manager
