    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with different clients, and think on the problems large corporations face.

    Cons

    Mainly, operational projects. You have to work on stuff your clients's employees are not qualified enough, or just don't want to do particular tiem-consuming tasks but has money to hire consultants. This sometimes happens in any consulting company but in Russian big4 there is more common due to relatively low price tag for client.

    Advice to Management

    Actually, I was lucky to have a great partner. However, managers don't really good in structuring and limiting the scope, which makes the way to insights really painful in terms of LWB.
