    Pros

    Most things. Great group of talented people to work with. Ability to work with cutting edge planning for the worlds largest companies. Relaxed and sincere culture.

    Cons

    Compensation is really the only downside to working at PwC, especially if you are also a licensed attorney. With the recent law firm salary increases in 2016, it will likely become very difficult if not impossible to recruit or keep attorneys at PwC.

    Working with the best of the best. Great mentoring. Great place to learn skills and get experience with top clients

    Limited growth potential after awhile. It's easy to progress, but more challenging to grow after a certain point. It's a big firm and there are lots of opportunities for exploration and development, but it's still a big company. Like other big companies, it's sometimes burdened by its size

    Advice to Management

    None. Great firm.
