    Pros

    One of the best managed companies in the country. I have previous experience at Accenture and IBM Global Services and PWC has much more flexibility in assignments and opportunities to contribute. Very lean management structure can have you working side by side with very senior partners at any time.

    Cons

    As with any of big4, travel is a must however PWC make effort to make sure everyone is balancing work and non-work life. If travel is a problem PWC is not for you.

    I worked at PwC full-time (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.
