    Pros

    You will learn how to solve complex problems as an individual and a team. Training and giving back is part of the culture. How to become a leader 101. Very ethical high integrity workforce.

    Cons

    Long Hours, lots of travel, and although work-life-balance is said to be important, it is in reality held against you.

    Advice to Management

    The culture of pwc and at most every company/firm has changed for the worse over the years. Where people wanted to make a career choice and stay, the atmosphere becomes different when jobs are now a commodity and outsourcing is the norm. Keep America strong and return to the values which made your company once the "Great Place to Work".

    Pros

    * Effective hiring process means great people to work with - very smart, capable, and driven
    * Very efficient at creating standardized process to execute projects
    * Lots of opportunities to see different industries, different clients, and different problems

    Cons

    * Working for 30,000+ person corporate consulting group means some bureaucratic and frustrating processes (particularly in performance evaluation)
    * While career path is clear, being promoted can be a moving target depending on your environment and peer performance

    Advice to Management

    I'd love to see a more real time feedback process that's a little more social rather than the existing PFF, memo to file, yearly evaluation process. I know PwC has implemented mobile apps to access resources like KCurve. A mobile app where one could select a project, a work stream, and a reviewee at any time that allowed a supervisor to comment on the way a junior employee handled a meeting, executed a deliverable, interacted with his client team, etc. would be really beneficial to see and could be aggregated, tracked, and analyzed to fit in with a yearly review.
