    Pros

    You work with smart people and high profile clients, and the work is mostly interesting. There are many opportunities to interact directly with the client even in your first year out of college, so you mature at a fast rate as a professional. PwC is also very flexible with working arrangements (in my experience) and the benefits are great. While salaries can be a little lower, they are competitive and they do a great job explaining how your comp is determined.

    Cons

    If you're in consulting you can be stuck on long travel engagements. Also while the firm is great at promoting diversity and women's initaitives, almost all the leaders are still white males which indirectly permeates the power structures at all levels. As you progress in the firm, it gets harder to envision having a strong family life AND being a leader at the firm while traveling 4-5 days a week to serve your clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to staff consulting resources on local engagements more when they ask for them.

    Pros

    Phenomenal organization with opportunities abound. The new real time feedback will drive PwC into light-speed beyond the three other "Big Four".

    Cons

    Technology is lacking, but improvements are in the works.

    Keep up the good work. Press forward and let the old way die.
