  10. Advisory Manager

    I have been working at PwC

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work with top clients in each industry. Total compensation does not look so bad compared to the average level of Big 4.

    Cons

    Work and life balance is one of them that you should exchange for your good-looking resume. Depending on the position, it will required you to travel a lot. You might be ended up with thinking that your total compensation divided by the total hours worked won't be greater than those of any part-time jobs at CVS.
