    I worked at PwC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great resources. Great people. Great experience. I was appreciated by the teams I worked with and was truly given the ability to involve myself fully in the work my teams were doing.

    Cons

    It was definitely a consulting job, however, I was not compensated as if this was the case. That was extremely frustrating when I put in the same work and time as some of the cyber advisory interns.

    Accelerated Learning, Hands On Work

    Not a lot of people are there to teach you to learn, you got to be willing spend extra time outside the office to learn key concepts

    I have been working at PwC as an intern

    Pros

    Throughout the course of my eight week internship, I gained great insight into the Firm, its people, and the practice of consulting. I grew to love all three. My team was welcoming, friendly, fair, and helpful. I felt comfortable talking both business and personal life with my team, which made working together easy-going and often fun, even during times of high pressure. Partners, directors, and managers were approachable at after work events. In working as a team, on my own, and with the client, I increased my ability to organize and structure work and communicate effectively.

    Cons

    I wish the orientation on Day 1 and 2 gave me a better idea of what to expect over the next eight weeks. I felt overwhelmed on my first day at the client, just the third day into the internship. I realized quickly that I was in for a hands-on and interactive learning experience with my team on my engagement.

    I have been working at PwC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coaching is incredible. I have learned a ton while I have been an intern, and I have taken on a great deal of responsibilities as a member of my team. There are plenty of opportunities at a firm level also to participate in community service and learning workshops.

    Cons

    The hours can be a little unpredictable

    The work culture here is great. The people I have worked with are very helpful and have provided much insight on their own experiences. The work itself is also quite interesting and engaging, and I was able to contribute to meaningful projects during my brief time here.

    Haven't had enough time with firm to talk to this

    Pros

    People, opportunities to advance your career if you're a high performer, not bad benefits compared to rest of industry, management is knowledgeable

    Cons

    Brand has taken a beating, compensation is low and normally would be justifiable if brand were in better standing, poor technological resources

    Advice to Management

    Improve compensation for new hires to attract best talent and avoid "brain drain"

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

    Pros

    Colleagues for the most part are fantastic. High profile clients. Great brand name which provides good exit opportunities

    Cons

    Current management of the Advisory practice is ruining the place. What was a tolerable political environment (i.e. nothing out of the ordinary) has become a toxic one. Experienced hires should avoid the place at all cost. You will be eaten up and spit out.

    Promotions and bonuses are based on politics.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the error of your ways and resign.

    As usual internal politics within the firm, but manageable.

    Make sure employees are not responsible for their own staffing
