I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Really smart, competent people that challenges you. Good training, great place to start your career. You get exposure to challenging transactions and can learn a lot. They are trying to change the way they evaluate people, but this will be the first year and I'm not sure how effective it will be.

Cons

Long hours! Despite their efforts to make this the best place to work, the efforts are not consistent. Career development is not their priority, unless you are one of the "chosen" ones - you need a mentor or you won't get anywhere. Also, they care more about the people that started since the beginning in NY than people transferring from other offices.

Advice to Management

Care more about people's career progression and don't throw them to clients just to fill the immediate needs.

    Think beyond your immediate region and practice as a global company

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

    Pros

    You really do learn financial statements outside and in; cool if you ever want to play the stock market. 10k's are your friend- that is if you pay attention to what you're doing. You get some nice relaxing time every once in a while and the Company means well. Lots of client interaction; most invaluable part of the whole job. Also, you will definitely find best friends; guarantee at least some people will have an incredibly well-developed sense of dry humor. Audit brings it out of you.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are not well-suited to managing teams and managing them can be really stressful. The review system is ridiculous; every psychology book out there explains why this system is incredibly poor for fairness as well as employee motivation. And you really do sacrifice a lot of life outside of work- hard to make plans. But if you like who you work with you can make that work for you for a while.
