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

Pros

Opportunities to work on areas that would take someone going directly into the industry from school a while before they would get exposure. Lots of recruiting to big 4 companies, easily marketable. PwC is probably the best public company out there. I work in San Jose, so we get exposure to neat companies.

Cons

Low salaries for what you contribute and the overtime you typically incur, and its not just for new associates. Basically, everyone but the partners are underpaid by a mile, but all big 4 are like this. Partners often too concerned about their budget that they give little attention to the money makers behind the budget. Big company, big office, lots of politics. "Diversity" rules the office, company.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees.

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

    Pros

    Good People for the most part, chances of getting a mentor are good

    Cons

    Opaque review process, some people are always favourites

    Advice to Management

    Make the review process more transperent, including why some people are favored. All it takes is knowledge transfer as to why some people are prefered, it may be that they are genuinely talented. If so then let the world know.

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

    Pros

    The people are great. Lots of effort is made to make flexibility possible. Exposure to all kinds of issues. You can't help gain experience very quickly.

    Cons

    Intense schedule. Long hours and non stop full speed pace. Limited work life balance. Frequent high pressure situations. Too many separate programs designed to support staff that compete instead of working together.
