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

Pros

Review for PwC Advisory practice:
-Opportunity to work with very smart people (and in my experience, some really great people)
-Good pay and bonus structure
-Excellent opportunity for advancement (i.e., you should be able to double your income every 5-6 years...if you can last that long)
-Potential for very interesting projects
-Potential for international travel and work abroad programs
-Excellent place to launch your career. You'll see more and do more than your buddies in industry (rule of thumb: every one year of consulting is like 2 years in industry
-Very social organization with lots of team dinners and office happy hours
-You get to travel

Cons

-Worklife balance is very much a challenge (they're are addressing this with flexibility programs but it's an up hill cultural battle
-You work with very smart and driven people - it can be very competitive
-Projects can be demanding
-You may travel a lot...initially sounds like a lot of fun but you can burn after a year of continuous travel
-Steep learning curve (the pace, level of stress, content and technical skills needed in a short amount of time)
-Don't ever plan on working 8-5 with all of your weekends free

Advice to Management

Improve your process for sourcing project resources so that travel is not 80%+
