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

Pros

Firm is strongly geared to onboarding and supporting Associates and Senior Associates. Lots of opportunities if you attract the attention of a busy Partner. Fair compensation and pretty good benefits.

Cons

Experienced hires at more senior levels do not get much support other than advice to "build your brand" - little or no information on how to do that. Internal networking is difficult. Job sell is about doing the work, job reality is about selling the work. Huge focus on building a book of business. Strong feeling of "the bosses" (Partners) and the underlings (everyone else). I've never felt more like hired help.

Advice to Management

Spend some time figuring out why incoming Senior Managers and Directors have such a hard time integrating and being successful, and why the turnover rate at that level is so high (it's not just because there are few Partner slots)

    Pros

    You will be mentored by the best of the best in the industry

    Cons

    Busy season might be challenging for some people. But, if you love what you are doing, it will be fun to learn a lot and get exposed to many different industries

    Advice to Management

    Please do not ignore candidates who are not from top schools. Regular schools will also offer best people
