I have been working at PwC full-time
PwC is a great place to work. They are much more of a flat hierarchy than other large consulting firms in the public sector, one of which I worked at for a number of years. I work with some of the most knowledgeable and skilled staff members, and as long as I make the effort to reach out, have access to resources and support to succeed. Senior Leadership are supportive of growth and are making large strides toward work-life balance particularly through their Senior Associate promotion DISCOVER program.
One con would be the disconnect between staff and HR regarding hiring decisions. There is a constant effort to get staff involved in referring in talent, but the hiring process is a bit of a black box with limited feedback to the interviewee and the staff member that refers him or her. Also, unless the individual is a strategic hire for a time-sensitive need, the process can take a long time, leading to desirable candidates going to competitors.
Advice to Management
Clarify the brand strategy: I agree that PwC can be in a category of one, but that category cannot be every offering from strategy to implementation. Differentiation strategies can be important in the short-term, but the firm is generally risk averse, leading to tension between internal firm practices and the external firm brand.
