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!

    Pros

    This company has great benefits, including vacation and retirement. The people are great to work with and the environment fosters hard work and learning.

    Cons

    There is not work and life balance with this company. It is very large and becomes difficult to become recognized. The work seems to be non value added most of the time. It is busy work with no purpose.
