    Current Employee - Analytic & Forensic Technology Associate in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at PwC

    Pros

    People are great. Very diverse company and supports it well. Flexibility to work remote depending on leadership. Big on volunteering and making a difference in the community. Lots of travel if you prefer that.

    Cons

    Lots of travel if you do not prefer that. High turnover rate because people tend to use a consulting firm as a means to gain experience before settling into a position with less travel. They choose not to spend money on training for it's staff while splurging money on thousand dollar dinners and lunches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the requests of your staff when it comes to training. To slow down the turnover rate consider paying a higher salary because at my current salary there is no way I can afford a house that is closer than a two hour commute to the office.
