    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Invaluable experience in terms of coaching, growth, opportunities, perks (vacation time, holidays, health insurance, cell phone + computer, etc), and the caliber of people you will be working with. Much more open environment than I expected for public accounting. As long as you're doing a good job, the possibilities are endless.

    Cons

    The big one is work-life balance. You will work long hours and weekends at times of the year. However, this was a reasonable tradeoff for me considering the growth that I experienced. And this was also balanced out with opportunities to work from home during non-busy times. Also notable that success can greatly depend on the engagements that you are put on early on and how well you fit in with the team leadership. Management does a good job moving individuals around for a better fit though.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I can think of - thank you for being such leaders in terms of flexibility, keep it going!
