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

Pros

The people are great and the opportunities, at least here in the New York Metro region, are endless if you get exposure to the right clients and engagement teams.

Cons

The starting salary and yearly increases are not as competitive as the other Big 4, I don't think.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1.) Job stability
    2.) Industry specialty
    3.) People (both pro & con)

    Cons

    1.) Long hours
    2.) Tunneled Opportunities
    3.) Lack of staff level appreciation
    4.) High turn-over
    5.) People

    Advice to Management

    The high turn-over model is predominately due to the work overload, lack of real appreciation of staff level contributions, and real work opportunities.

    Pay is an important incentive, but in most cases, not the driving factor behind staff seeking new opportunities outside the firm.

    I would suggest putting more attention to work load balance, work life balance, and allowing for easier transition between opportunities.
