    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.

    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.
