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

Pros

Decent salary, great benefits, looks impressive on a resume when you leave, recruited heavily from my undergraduate institution, will pay for your CPA, and provides opportunities to learn a lot.

Cons

Demand lots of hours and travel, not the most exciting coworkers, not as well paid as other jobs that require long hours and travel (i.e., Investment Banking, Management Consulting, etc.), unfulfilling at times, entry-level position often requires low level work.

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    PwC is an excellent company with very smart people working there. It is definitely one of the best companies for someone to start their career at.

    They clearly invest in developing the people working there, and the skills one develops in terms of managing others are hard to beat anywhere else.

    Cons

    As you move to the higher ranks, it can become political and bureaucratic, like many other large organizations. The path to partnership can take much longer than one expects.
