I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Retirement Benefits, Milestone benefits, Salary, Career Opportunity. In addition to these items PwC Partners will truly fight for their people in down times and make an effort to not lay anyone off. Excellent brand to have on your resume.

Cons

400 hours over standard required. Metrics outdated and do not account for all job requirements and situations. While there are many opportunities to work with people who are excellent in their fields there are an equal number of opportunities to work with career bureaucrats who offer no value. Also ability to keep up with technology internally very poor.

Advice to Management

Trim the fat and get workers up to date on what's going on in other markets. There are many PwC employees completely out of touch with reality because they only work in their little segment and opportunities are lost because these people are unable to cross network effectively.

    Pros

    Managers and above are enrolled in Pension Plan.

    Cons

    No defined bonus at Manager level.
    Firm practices are still old school
    Technology practice is not as strong as BearingPoint
    Not strong in project delivery
    The leaders who came from BearingPoint and joined PwC still operate in a staff augmentation mode.
