    I worked at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People centric firm that stresses the importance of developing their employees. They have a great coaching environment. Additionally the training both on the job and at the various class-type sessions they offer are very relevant and beneficial.

    Cons

    Although vacation is typically more than an "industry" position the long hours are not for everyone. Must be willing to travel in order to coco donate the needs of their clientele.

    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.
