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

Pros

PwC offers great opportunities for international rotations. The culture is based on empowerment and allows junior team members to assume client facing roles with great responsibility early on in their career. The mix of assurance, tax and advisory function and a global industry network is very efficient to acquire skills during a career.

Cons

Partnership based corporate structure results in unqualified and occasiinally unmotivated people sticking around for too long.
