    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 5 years)

    Pros

    Well balanced work atmosphere, voted top 10 for best work place and company to work. The Salary are at or higher then market mostly.

    Cons

    Most of the jobs require 80 to 100 percent travel like most of the top consulting companies. Personal growth is more dependent on the individual and moving across group is tough unless you know someone in the other group.

    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.
