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

    Pros

    Great benefits, especially if you have kids/family.
    Lots of smart people.
    Great brand name and recognition.
    Pay is livable in all markets. You can make more out in the market, but you sacrifice promotions

    Cons

    Easy to blend in/hard to stand out
    You are judged on utilization (hours worked on a client) so efficiency doesn't matter
    Hard to internally transfer to another group if you don't like yours despite what they say.

    Advice to Management

    Address the fact that it is a revolving door and how you plan to deal with staff shortages.
    Allow staff to transfer to new groups rather than letting them leave.

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

    Pros

    Overall leadership is heading in the right direction; good culture supporting work life balance and flexibility; large firm with many resources; recent acquisitions of Diamond, PRTM, and Booz are bringing needed talent; advisory is growth oriented so many changes are on the way; relationship-driven culture so people are taught to put relationships first

    Cons

    Large, inpersonal firm, can be disconnected, internal firm support is bureaucratic and ineffective; promotion system is non-transparent and disconnected from day to day work; performance review processes are tedious and do not lend to honest constructive feedback; engagement staffing coordinated by firm HR support is dysfuntional, and staffing operates on personal network rather than identified business needs; staffing tend to determine career growth rather than personal strengths/interests/passions; evolving consulting practice so operating model and competencies are not defined; lower pay for consulting roles compared to industry peers; over-emphasis on "relationship" building creates subcultures of cronyism and favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving talent management, performance review, and staffing; reward performance as much as "relationships"; invest more in intellectual capital development to be competitive with other top notch consulting firms
