    I worked at PwC

    Pros

    At PWC I was surrounded by well educated, hard working professionals. As a client-facing organization, associates are helpful and collaborate with each other. There is a real atmosphere of success throughout the organization.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, which also can make one wish that the compensation was a little higher. However, the access to challenges and experience as a professional are very valuable in and of themselves.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people. The personal growth. Great team-based culture at the lower level. Just Great!!

    Cons

    The hours, the internal expectations. You can end up in a great project, or in a nightmare project... and it could ruin your life for 6+ months at a time (which is what has happened to me).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When it came out to really look out for your people.... short term $ gains and pleasing an unfair client came first. All that is written in paper went out the door. Have the courage to walk away.

    Former Employee - Senior Associate - Advisory in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Senior Associate - Advisory in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Surrounded by smart people, for the most part
    Upward mobility is there if you are competent
    Although it's a large company, MDs have their own 'business within a business,' so it can feel like a small startup at times
    Not afraid to spend time and money on product training/learning
    Travel

    Cons

    Travel
    Longer hours than most jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice the work-life balance that you preach - look at innovative ways to balance your workforce's w/l mix. Doing so will not only make your employees happier, it will attract top young talent as well. Manage your client's expectations upfront to enable this balance.
