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

    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.
