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

Pros

Very good employer, good benefits, high level of knowledge at all levels, opportunity to work in global projects, and culturally diverse.

Cons

It requires long hours; you end up working 50 to 60 hours a week for a regular salary (low salary if we take into consideration all the stress, responsibility and hours devoted to the work). The environment is very demanding; you end up living only to work. If you have a family you will have to put work first, projects are demanding and usually need immediate assistance, (so it can mean working until very late, weekends, etc...) . It has an employee review process that is very strict and you are being compared to people who work 70 and 80 hours a week, so even if you work 50 you will still look like if you did not put enough effort. You actually feel like a machine, forget about your personal life.

Advice to Management

Work/life balance is not really true; it is a place full of workaholics.
