Current Employee - Senior Associate - Advisory in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at PwC

Pros

Good experience. Lots of opportunity. You work at lots of companies and do a lot of different things. If you are interested in travel there are lots of opportunities. The people are in general very intelligent and hardworking. You build up a great network that will help you the rest of your career.

Cons

Stressful and heavy with politics. What you want to do in your career and what the partnership wants you to do might not necessarily be the same thing. Staffing is rough. You are held responsible for your utilization but you don't always have control over your staffing. You need to be flexible. The work is sometimes boring and unrewarding. I always felt a little under-paid in terms of how hard I worked vs. the salary I received.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your lower level staff better and give them more reasons to stick around after "putting in their time."
