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

Pros

-Great brand name
-They put you out in front of some key business players early, and have a good training system
-Great benefits (you keep points from all credit cards, flights, etc)

Cons

-Overworked for the amount being paid; you more often than not will keep working until you hit your project milestone/deadline
-Salary based, so there is no OT
-Very high stress environment
-If you travel, you will not be around much (fly in at beginning of the week, fly out at end of the week)

    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relationships that you build
    Diversity of work that you can do

    Cons

    Overtime requirement
    Hard to get recognized because the company is so large.
    Have to move heaven and earth to get a 1 rating.
    Do not go into the Washington Federal Practice. There is little movement with various projects.
    Very difficult to find engagements to go to if you do not know the right people.
    Live close to the office that you are tied to. If you live far you will not be successful at this firm. They expect you to be able to come to the office for every little event or training. Living 75 miles away from your home office is a death sentence and no one will care but you.
    No work/life balance
    Very arrogant staff (many have the we are better than you attitude)
    Make sure you come in a the right level. I came in at the highest Associate level possible and did not get a raise for 2 years until I was promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the demographics of your staff.
    Stop hiring people just to hire them. Make sure you have engagements to place people. Do not hire someone on wishful thinking

    Pros

    Every consulting firm has its own mertis & demerits, i would rate this place above average just for its core values and the culture.

    Cons

    might become difficult if you are new to the organization and dont know enough people, or work in a location that doesnt have people from your group.
