    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and freedom to try other LOS. Strong global presence that encourages relationships outside of US. Ability to travel frequently.

    Cons

    There's a reason PwC has the highest revenue per employee, many times feel shorthanded but still expected to complete all the work.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to make everything always about the bottom line.

    I worked at PwC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Real time work, real responsibilities, real exposure. Did a lot of work that was used in client presentations which was incredibly rewarding. Learned a lot!

    Cons

    Demanding, they place you in a competency that they see fit best for you. They don't let you choose which is kind of a strategic move on their part but didn't like it as an intern because I didn't know what else was out there. I wish they had more of a generalist advisory entry level job not specified by a competency

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.
