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

    Pros

    1- Good place for building experience
    2- Good place for forming friendships and connecting
    3- Flexible working hours
    4- Good pay for high level professionals
    5- Good place for diversity and different backgrounds

    Cons

    1- Long working hours: you have to work many days up to midnight and over the weekends for months. Despite this, the overtime is calculated on your basic salary which means nothing material in your hand.
    2- Old computers and bad chairs: they do not invest in equipment and that is why many staff in the firm are suffering from eye and backbone problems.
    3- Outdated software: do you believe that up to few months ago we were using windows 2003?
    4- Promotions generally need connections beside skills. You are skilled, yes, but you need to know somebody to get it ahead.
