Pros

Great benefits (3wks vacation to start, lots of days off, 401k partial matching), lots of smart people with great industry knowledge in the consulting (advisory) end of the business

Cons

Lots of bureaucracy, particularly on the engagement acceptance process (largely because of PwC's audit role) and client billing. Promotions that are needed for particular groups can be scuttled because of overall business performance. Since I've left, I've heard that PwC has become much more tightfisted about expenses, promotions, raises, etc.

Advice to Management

Become less risk averse, especially on the consulting side of things. If PwC really wants to expand into non-audit and tax work it needs to streamline processes and make it easier for employees to do work

    Pros

    Worked in Marketing and Sales, good collegial atmosphere and collaboration. Flexible schedule, work from home one day per week. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Annual review process is onerous and it's unclear if/how bonus distribution is equitable. Internal Firm Services went through 3 RIFs in less than 2 years. Partner political infighting affects 'innocent' team members.

    Advice to Management

    Partners should focus more on the people who make the firm run and profitable versus their own internal kingdoms and excessive salaries.
