Pros

Huge client base.
Terrific market recognition.

Cons

*Pay is not to the point of enticing a person to travel 4 days a week and stay away from family.
*Its consulting, so it has its pros and big cons, I had recruiters simply not respond once they know I was consulting, so getting a corporate career can be tough after PwC.
* Its consulting, so there is no sense of team spirit, its every man for himself, along with that comes the review being a farce, and the director and partners being gods as far as your career is concerned.

Advice to Management

A simply advice to management would be to treat the Associates and Sr Associates like gold. A reason they got into PwC is because they are super stars in what they do, and some of them will rise to be C and D level management in their careers, and future business to PwC will be dependent upon what they feel and experience at PwC. Treating your younger folks with contempt is the quick sure way of ensuring declining revenues in the future.
