Pros

great work opportunities as the brand gets great opportunities

Cons

very political and no respect for true subject matter expertise or consulting capability. Most promotions are for people who do project administration type of of work. These are all in the consulting practice.

Advice to Management

show the values of a professional services firm and remove arrogance at high level.

    Pros

    Still trying to figure out...

    Cons

    The pay is so undermarket for this area, I live with roommates, drive an old car and STILL struggle to buy groceries.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a living wage! This is impossible to show up to work while I am so hungry!

    Pros

    PwC is a very large company that does everything from strategy to operations. At PwC, you can just about every type of role advising clients in the Advisory Practice. Solid benefits such as unlimited sick leave, 22 days of vacation, etc.

    Cons

    Very risk adverse being a audit firm. Very hierarchal. Your position defines what you can do, your role, and the types of opportunities you get. If you are willing to move up the corporate ladder this is good for you. Expect to work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the hierarchal approach to management.
