I worked at PwC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I got to work with amazing clients. The work was really amazing. I was on an IPO and got to go through the process and it has propelled my career.

Cons

Long hours but always valuable learning experience. Long hours but the teams was nice. Long hours but I could order anything I wanted for dinner.

  1. "Overall a good company, however the culture is not very open and the firm is highly risk averse in every capacity."

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

    Pros

    Good name, good retirement and vacation benefits.
    Growing rapidly in Advisory which should create career options.

    Cons

    Technology is horrible. Firm uses Lotus, reuse of IP is severely limited by bad search tools, laptops are loaded down with junk programs that make startup take 15 minutes.
    Healthcare plans push more cost to the employees. I ended up using my wife's work plan.
    Firm is not as open or collaborative as it would like people to believe


  2. "Great Place to Start...if you're single"

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training, both formal, and on the job. I learned a lot about IT Audit from the infrastructure and training in place at PwC. I enjoyed most of the people I worked with, and I enjoyed their vacation/paternity leave policies. I also enjoyed working on large clients, gaining enterprise level experience, and learning how to deal with difficult clients.

    Cons

    I didn't enjoy the amount of travel I was required to do my second year. I traveled 50% due to a bad economy in Denver, and having to take on another associate's clients. I didn't know it at the time, but the culture wasn't one that fostered cohesiveness, nor did it focus on client service.
