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

Pros

There's no experience right out of college than a Big 4 Firm. Great place to put in your time, provides limitless opportunities in the industry. It's a fun place to work - the people are awesome and there are usually lots of fun activities/teambuilding (when you have time to attend).

Cons

Work/life balance sucks. Utliization targets are set ridiculously high based on all of the extracurriculars you are expected to participate in (community service, affinity groups, etc.).

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits.
    High-calibre colleagues.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional, incoherent management.
    Many (admittedlyt, not all) partners seem to have the same autonomy and lack of regard for peasant as medieval barons. If you didn't have your head up the lower end of the right person's alimentary canal, you riisked being totally sidelined.

    Advice to Management

    At least in Advisory Services, get your act together!

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you take the initiative, you can generally seek out the type of work and projects you most enjoy

    Cons

    male-dominated culture; access to some high-profile clients seems to be confined to the "boys-club"; associates and seniors are hired in with the knowledge that PwC will just grind them down and burn them out--PwC should be honest about the fact that long-term career potential won't exist for the majority of the young staff it hires.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is inappropriate the way that PwC will continue to try to shape who ends up at which clients after we have resigned from PwC. There seem to be a lot of "off the record" conversations which are very unseemly.
