    Pros

    You will get to travel a lot, if you are a wanderer. You will get to work Independently and can get vast exposure to different sectors of consulting at very initial stages.

    Cons

    Your domain will change with every project. So if you are a person willing to gain expertise in a particular domain, unless you are lucky you might not like it.

    Advice to Management

    We should do proper resource allocation. Skill to requirement mapping is something that should be focused for betterment of employees future and in turn the firm.

    Pros

    You work with a bunch of young people who are really smart and fun.

    Cons

    There has been a visible cost cutting push. The insurance plan I was on was cut and they told us only 4 months before the plan was up. The manager promotion bonus was cut by 20%, and they tried to tell us sneakily by making us click through 3 links before seeing information on the cut. They also cut money for team happy hours and bonding activities.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at PwC full-time

    Pros

    - good exposure to large, high-profile projects at Fortune 100 / 500 companies (a.k.a something to talk about on the resume)
    - For the amount of work, the pay is fair

    Cons

    - Firm has gone through a series of acquisitions and has acquired some excellent talent. However, leadership is predominantly ex-audit, legacy pwc and can't relate to advisory staff
    - performance metrics are absurd. Staff bonuses are based on "utilization," a function of partner performance
    - Due to the acquisitions, experience and promotability is highly variable group to group. Some employees find themselves on the same client for years whereas others have the opportunity to work on many clients. Along the same line, each group has varying standards for promotablility
    - Recent push for profitability has resulted in benefits being cut
    - Advancing at the firm is highly dependent on your ability to drink the "cool-aid" or fake doing so convincingly

    Advice to Management

    - Use the talent you have aquired and let consulting partners lead the consulting practice
    - Stop imposing standards on staff to improve partner performance
    - Understand that consulting is a cyclical business and stop expecting the same quarter to quarter performance you would of an audit business

    Pros

    There are many opportunities at PwC, global reach, nice salary, great benefits and overall many nice people to work with.

    IFS work environment can be very "clickish" depending on the functional area and number of longer tenured staff working together.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend that key leaders change regularly to bring in new ideas and spur growth.
