I worked at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Firm offers good vacation and occasionally gives extra days off around holidays, option to work remotely at times.

Cons

High-turnover, high-stress, frequent self-assessment performance reviews take too much time to complete. "High-performance" expectations means you end up working some of your holiday / vacation time.

Advice to Management

Better career guidance is key, need to be given obtainable goals to balance out the high-stress and fast pace.

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Brand name, great projects and experience. You'll leave highly prepared for your next job. That's about the only good thing I can say.

    Cons

    Nasty people, especially the women who treat lower levels like trash. There's slit of favoritism and your performance is not objective. It's about whether you are liked or not.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves, then the company can get out of its own way and truly be a great place to work
