I worked at PwC full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Amazing learning opportunities, really smart colleagues, team environment, very constructive two-way feedback process. I learned so much in the almost seven years I was in the audit practice. It was a very valuable experience, especially right out of college.

Cons

It's public accounting, so lots of overtime! While I was there, I thought I was underpaid. Now that I'm gone, I think it was pretty fair (if you don't consider the overtime), and the merit-based compensation was excellent!

Advice to Management

Continue the focus on team-building and bottom-up feedback. Allow more cross-industry staffing to give broader experience to staff.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I came to PwC Advisory by way of an acquisition. Since joining the firm, I have been impressed with the quality of talent, especially at the more senior levels. The firm truly has industry leading experts working on the most interesting, most difficult projects at the best clients.

    Cons

    The internal policies at PwC are standard across the firm, and are heavily skewed towards the audit practice (as they are the vast majority of employees). This makes some of these policies irrelevant to the advisory / consulting practice, and frustrating to be required to adhere to. In addition, PwC's internal technology (laptops, software, etc.) is outdated and not as conducive to productivity as the technology available at some consulting competitors.
