    Current Employee - Director

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The culture promotes and encourages excellence in everything, and you have access to mountains of information
    You get to work with some of the smartest people in the world
    International opportunities are very real
    Everything has a process

    Cons

    Hours and travel can make a social life impossible
    Partners are fixated on numbers - it's not good enough to improve the client's situation, you have to exceed utilization and revenue targets to even be considered for a good review.
    Utilization, utilization, utilization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge people by what good they do, not just what numbers they bring in. And get some female Partners and MDs in Technology - it's demoralizing to female managers and directors that its still a boys club

    Current Employee - Senior Associate - Advisory
    Current Employee - Senior Associate - Advisory

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move around lines of service, geographic location, and different industries within the firm. Coaching / learning is a key focus - lots of shared knowledge to benefit from. A high level of responsibility is given to you at a young age if you pursue it. A great place to launch your career.

    Cons

    Pay is below market for most skill sets you would learn / utilize here. The review process is broken - working on big projects / for big clients is looked upon very positively when in essence you often learn less from these experiences compared to smaller deals (or audit clients) with smaller teams. The environment is extremely progressive when it comes to communication, feedback, diversity, thought leadership, brand design, etc. This is not always a great thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the utilization / billable hours system, pay a bit more, turnover will decrease substantially and you can then actually choose who should stay and who should stay on board opposed to letting employees dwindle on forever.
