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

Pros

Stability. There's a clear path and you would have to set the building on fire to be fired.

Cons

Billable hours/metric centered - Don't strive for efficiency gains; it's better to work long and hard rather than work efficiently. Their goal is to bill lots of hours to the client.

Lack of intellectual capital - In my experience, colleagues were very dense.

Slow pace of development - Because employees are not the sharpest crayons, and there is constant hiring straight out of college, the bar is set very low. You are expected to learn how to do 3 things, and repeat these at nauseum before being entrusted with a new task.

Very little interaction with Partners/Principals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the dumb people clogging up the system. Move away from the stupid metrics. HR is USELESS.
