    Pros

    PWC is a great place to cut your teeth and get your career started. I learned alot and developed a great work ethic.

    Cons

    You have to manage your career at PWC. It sounds cliche but, it is what you make of it. If you wait for opportunity to come to you, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your junior guys more. You spend so much developing and recruiting then the top employees walk at about 3-5 years. Maybe its me, but i would lose some of the training/benefits at that level and pay more cash.
