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

Pros

Steady growth path, flexible work, incredible business exposure.

Cons

-Work hours can be exhausting as you find yourself making up work on the weekends.
-Multiple reporting managers, with tight schedules.
-Enough work that you can never fully get "caught up", which makes your compensation seem very small (example: 2500 billable hours; Associate Salary roughly 60k (major us city); $24 an hour. 2nd/3rd year associates make $1 less an hour than interns and do not receive overtime.)

Advice to Management

If you're going to front your company like a top-tier a finance firm, you need to either hire more people to complete the work, or improve your compensation to match the hours.
