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

Pros

People are incredibly supportive, benefits are comparable with the rest of the valley, variety of work is nothing you'll find anywhere else (except another consulting group).

Cons

Work/life balance. Everything you heard about working for a consulting company is true. The travel will be extensive and the hours will be grueling.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work... maybe work on keeping the hours a bit more reasonable.

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

    Pros

    The people are cool. You get to travel around to difference companies that you are working with as part of your engagement and experience different company culture.

    Cons

    Busy season is pretty awful. Terribly long hours for months on end. You kind of forget you are a person for a little bit until it is over.


  2. "Great learning experience but a lot of hours and office politics."

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

    Pros

    Work with large clients
    Work with young, energetic individuals
    Opportunity to advance at young age
    Travel - Opportunity to see new cities for training
    Job security

    Cons

    A lot of hours and hard deadlines which will involve late nights and weekends
    Promotions only occur once a year
    Underpaid for the amount of work required
    Travel - Could be put on projects out of the office for months on end in small towns

    Advice to Management

    Promotion process is too rigid and turns a lot of people away. Many associates think that only payoff in long run is to stay until partner.
