    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.

    I worked at PwC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work, if you are correctly placed in the right group. Benefits and pay (including bonuses) are excellent. Lots of applications and tools to support projects.

    Cons

    Travel and hours are very demanding, so be aware that you are compensated for this expectation. Large training and independence requirements. The training and education is there, but a lot is basically own time requirements as you will likely be billing full time before you can complete all your training goals. Independence requirements can be difficult if you have large or varied investments.
