I have been working at PwC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Competitive Pay - High Performing Culture - Great Career Development

Cons

- Workload can be tremendous - At lower levels there is not enough incentive to be a high performer

Advice to Management

On the highest level possible, I feel like the firms goals are misaligned. The notion of becoming the quality firm, growth firm, and flexibility firm all at once is counter intuitive. The burden is being felt on your highest performers and as a result I would expect to see abover average turnover amongst your top performers over the next 2 years.

    Pros

    At PwC, you are given the opportunities to grow in other areas of your career aside from the area expertise for which you were hired. If you are proactive and reach out to HR, you can migrate toward opportunities that interest you. You have to be proactive and self-motivated. To work at PwC, you must think of yourself as an entrepreneur with your own company. PwC encourages you as an individual to develop your own "brand", develop an area of expertise (Subject Matter Expert) and a skill set that is unique to you.

    Cons

    The downsides are typical of the consulting industry. Generally, Monday through Thursdays are long hours. Friday isn't as long on client hours but is a day of doing administrative work. Much of the time you are doing administrative tasks, studying or taking classes on your own time but this is for your own development. As is typical of the consulting industry, you are traveling every week (this is a great way to earn airline/hotel points to pay for your next vacation).

    Advice to Management

    Management is on a great track currently developing transparency throughout the firm. I hope they keep listening to the employees and upgrading the technological tools for the consultants. Most importantly, management needs to address the work-life balance a little more.
