    Pros

    Interesting career and work experience. You will never get bored as there is always a variety of projects

    What you get paid is not proportional to what you work. You need to build relationships with clients and customers and in order to do that, you should involve yourself in out-of-work activities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Global mobility should be enforced

    Pros

    You get into consulting easily and get access to big projects of big companies.

    Cons

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant and Project Manager in Madrid (Spain)
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant and Project Manager in Madrid (Spain)

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard to think of any, specially if you have worked on another consulting company before. If you haven´t, the pro is getting an all rounded professional experience. But only if you work for the Strategy Practice, all other industrial practices do mostly process work

    Cons

    Very bad a people management
    No work-life balance whatsoever (canceled vacations one day prior to it, work 15 - 18 hours a day, work on weekends, and although we know that´s more or less to expect in strategy consulting, most of the time, all of this happens for poor team and client management)
    Unclear advancement policy
    Evaluations are a joke
    It´s just like a high school
    Lack of any research/ knowledge support on projects (you are always re-inventing the wheel)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your people, improve team and client management

    Worth a try

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Auditor in Barcelona (Spain)
    Former Employee - Auditor in Barcelona (Spain)

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The greatest part of this job is that I actually learn a lot from the work. It was a tough but extremely rewarding year. Senior workers are required to help junior workers and the colleagues to help to each other. The working environment is quite nice. Besides, the firm is well structured. HR provided a lot of help in order to fit new workers into the corporate culture. Everything works quite efficiently.

    Cons

    Working environment is not very nice. You have to face tough competition from co-workers, pressure from senior managers and sometimes a couple of not very kind words. You are also required to travel and face different clients in a very short period of time. Long working hours, which means poor personal life outside work. In some occassions I had also to deal racism although I also met very open-minded colleagues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open-minded

    No opinion of CEO
