I worked at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

People centric firm that stresses the importance of developing their employees. They have a great coaching environment. Additionally the training both on the job and at the various class-type sessions they offer are very relevant and beneficial.

Cons

Although vacation is typically more than an "industry" position the long hours are not for everyone. Must be willing to travel in order to coco donate the needs of their clientele.

    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.
