I worked at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Firm offers good vacation and occasionally gives extra days off around holidays, option to work remotely at times.

Cons

High-turnover, high-stress, frequent self-assessment performance reviews take too much time to complete. "High-performance" expectations means you end up working some of your holiday / vacation time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better career guidance is key, need to be given obtainable goals to balance out the high-stress and fast pace.

    A good place to start your career but this is not a long term fix. Typically under pay staff.

    Pros

    It's a job and a resume builder.

    Cons

    Upper management can care less about people. If they did they wouldn't have such a high turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they are worth. You let people leav over a couple thousand dollars and than spend 60k to on board a replacement. No logic at all!

    Breadth of technical development, but cookie-cutter corporate culture is not friendly to creativity

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

    Pros

    * Exposure to variety of technical issues
    * High profile clients
    * Decent salary, but note also that your hourly wages (net) will be $16 during busy times

    Cons

    * Cookie cutter mentality: not very adept at giving you tasks that play to your strengths, and in fact I think there is an attitude that everyone should have to "suffer" a bit in order to play on the team - ie, intentionally denying you opportunities to use your strengths.
    * Burn-out is high b/c staff is seen as highly dispensable
    * Associates are not eligible for end of year bonuses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Practice what you preach: enforce flexibility
    * Give associates end of year bonuses, in order to retain talent

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
