    Pros

    A lot of intelligent people around you, a great place to start a career, a generally younger crowd, good experience and "opportunity" , great people to work with.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the work, you'll have some inescapable late nights. Due to the size of the company, you'll have annoying HR/admin initiatives that keep you from your actual work.

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

    Pros

    The different clients typically are receptive to your ideas and thoughts, which provides a bit of satisfaction. Pay is not too bad either, when looked at strictly from a salary perspective (looking at hourly will put a dent in the pay opinion however)

    Cons

    The constant work load, long nights, early morning, and never ending stress of always having more and more pushed upon you to do make for an overall experience that I could not envision maintaining for an entire career.
