I worked at PwC full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Some very smart people who do care about doing good work - find them, and work however you can for them.
- Brand still means something - and management consulting is an interesting space to be in.
- The variety in consulting work is fascinating

Cons

- VERY political atmosphere. It's about who you know.
- Utilization matters more than if you're a consistently good performer. I was laid off because there wasn't enough 'work for me to do', but had no visibility into sales cycle.
- Travel and more travel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you say you're not an 'up or out' company, then mean it. Culture is progressive in some areas, but lots of management that doesn't really care if you work hard.
