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

Pros

- Some very smart people who do care about doing good work - find them, and work however you can for them.
- Brand still means something - and management consulting is an interesting space to be in.
- The variety in consulting work is fascinating

Cons

- VERY political atmosphere. It's about who you know.
- Utilization matters more than if you're a consistently good performer. I was laid off because there wasn't enough 'work for me to do', but had no visibility into sales cycle.
- Travel and more travel.

Advice to Management

If you say you're not an 'up or out' company, then mean it. Culture is progressive in some areas, but lots of management that doesn't really care if you work hard.

    Pros

    Great brand name for your resume
    Have exposure to the different industries

    You are as good as who supports you. You need to know people to get on a project with high profile clients. You might be stuck on boring projects. Long hours and low pay.
