I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

PwC is a very large company that does everything from strategy to operations. At PwC, you can just about every type of role advising clients in the Advisory Practice. Solid benefits such as unlimited sick leave, 22 days of vacation, etc.

Cons

Very risk adverse being a audit firm. Very hierarchal. Your position defines what you can do, your role, and the types of opportunities you get. If you are willing to move up the corporate ladder this is good for you. Expect to work long hours.

Advice to Management

Stop with the hierarchal approach to management.

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

    Pros

    -Exposure to a Big 4 firm, and lots of interaction with big clients
    -Opportunities to travel to different places.

    Cons

    -Long hours with compensation that's way too low
    -Very political environment. HR has too much power.

    Advice to Management

    Make your promotions based on merit, not personal relationships. Most people who kiss up to management get much further than qualified individuals who are excellent at their job. Many people leave the firm because management simply doesn't take merit into consideration.
