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

    Pros

    Your experience at the company is a crap shoot. A lot of it depends on the client you are assigned because that in turn dictates your team, workload, and difficulty of work. I was fortunate enough to work on a big client - challenging work and great teammates made my experience satisfying.

    Cons

    Public accounting dictates long hours but once you get passed that, I can't think of anything immediately. The pay could be better, of course.

    Pros

    Leadership opportunity and executive. Predictable growth and continuous pushing outside of the comfort zone. Executive interaction. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of hands on training and depth. It's Big4 consulting; don't look for work/life balance. Formal, rigid, conservative.

    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.
