I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You develop robust modeling skills and don't have to deal with pitch books. Fun, collegial environment. As a campus hire, you can start managing teams in less than 2 years - won't get that experience in banking. Hours slightly better than BB/MM (however see cons).

Cons

Pay is below market (for the talent the group recruits). Very high turnover. Considered inferior to sell-side.

Advice to Management

Move the group from assurance/advisory to corporate finance so you can offer competitive pay (or downgrade talent like many other valuation shops that are hitched to accounting firms). Assuming assurance/advisory has low caps on comp since they are attached to a cpa firm.
