I worked at PwC

Pros

I was fortunate to end up on teams with some really great people.

Cons

The hours are long and work life balance is almost non-existent...particularly in the Austin market.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady growth path, flexible work, incredible business exposure.

    Cons

    -Work hours can be exhausting as you find yourself making up work on the weekends.
    -Multiple reporting managers, with tight schedules.
    -Enough work that you can never fully get "caught up", which makes your compensation seem very small (example: 2500 billable hours; Associate Salary roughly 60k (major us city); $24 an hour. 2nd/3rd year associates make $1 less an hour than interns and do not receive overtime.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to front your company like a top-tier a finance firm, you need to either hire more people to complete the work, or improve your compensation to match the hours.

    I worked at PwC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    sets you with mentors, wines and dines you, easy work for interns

    Cons

    associates felt overworked, wanted more work as an intern

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    rely on your interns more, make them work. that's what they are there for.
