    I worked at PwC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Diverse group of co-workers (in major markets, not sure about smaller markets)
    - High expectations, which results in increased responsibilities and roles for high performers
    - Many vacations days, which compensate for average salary
    - Opens the door to many other opportunities
    - Great support from HR

    Cons

    - Ineffective middle management
    - Lots of red-tape and hurdles to overcome for seemingly minor issues
    - Can be very politicized when it comes to promotions
    - Performance review must include extracurricular activities for high rating

    Advice to Management

    - Say what your mean and mean what you say (i.e. flexibility initiatives are mostly lip service)
    - Reward hard work and commitment to the client, not extracurricular participation
    - Continue to offer career development opportunities to your employees
    - Become more innovative in terms of productivity/billing (i.e. billable hours model, while a huge money maker for the firm, is unproductive and ineffective for offering clients the best service possible.)
