    I worked at PwC as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a lot of responsibility and there is a great opportunity to learn a lot. They pay is pretty competitive. You also have the ability to transfer to different areas to try new departments to see what is a good fit.

    Cons

    There are some pretty big cons which include a stressful environment , high turnover, and long hours. Also they can be a little unrealistic about the amount of hours it takes to get a project done.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to start your career
    Lots of great opportunities for diverse experiences if you get the chance and don't mind working long hours
    Given lots of responsibilities at low levels

    Cons

    Long work hours - required to work "overtime" just as status quo
    Nights and weekends are PwC's for the taking, work/life balance doesn't exist. People that claim work/life balance are internal firm services or are workaholics that see Sunday's off as a true benefit.
    Health care benefits are dismal. Much better at other places
    Compensation is below average when you consider the number of hours required
    You are placed where they want you to go. As an experienced hire they tell you that you are being hired for a unique skill set, but at the end of the day good luck getting to utilize it unless you're lucky enough to land a project that requires it.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront and transparent during the interview process about what will happen when you join the firm.
