    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Huge focus on improving me as a person. Very smart people who are also very humble. Clients are amazing, and the problems that you work on are the biggest problems that you read about in headline news.

    Cons

    There is a lot of focus on risk management on every engagement - but I guess that's part and parcel of being a huge, successful company.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand
    Strong strategy
    Bold management team
    Make great friends
    Enjoyable company outings, that are regular
    Career progression is directly tied to performance(can't speak to more senior levels)
    Diverse colleagues

    Cons

    Pay is below market - they will try their best to convince you otherwise, but it is below market
    Once you are in and assigned to a group, there is no leaving you are stuck
    Sometimes do not get the strategy engagements and end up playing in the lower level stuff
    Not a lot of partner time for junior staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace flexibility with junior staff on projects
    Listen to junior staff when talking about career growth, not just the next project you want to put them on.
    No partner circles at company outings

    For Pwc Recruiters: From a candidate perspective, I am really turned off by the recruiting process these days.

    I worked at PwC

    Pros

    If you can get hired, it can be a GREAT place to work. Employee friendly, great health benefits, good work environment

    Cons

    Here is my thing--- they move around SO many internal people into open positions that external candidates are getting turned off. At least in the local market I am in. People are reluctant to apply because they feel their chances are very much weakened by the internal candidates. So much so, they are holding off on applying now.
