    Pros

    This review is about my overall experience with the firm. Professionals help each other succeed. As the leader in the public accounting industry, PwC has the resources and professionals to help one get to the next step in their career.

    Cons

    Currently, I believe that I have not come across any situations that may be considered a "con." I would be able to contribute more to this review after having experienced the internship program.

    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.

    Good pay, good ethics, and open for growth.

    When considering a potential candidate for hire, be sure to implement extensive training to the job at hand especially if off site from the main staff.
