    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Broad exposure to various opportunities, people and clients. Especially useful coming straight out of school.

    Cons

    Engagements are consistently understaffed; people are overworked; lots of mind games. Difficult to get onto new projects. High turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a higher value placed on treating people adequately. Throwing around corporate jargon like "work-life balance" does not actually mean staff get to experience this. The idea of working 90 hrs/wk can no longer qualify as a badge of honor - it needs to be eradicated if you want people to stick around in the long run.

    Poor work/life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The high performers are taken advantage of. Work is piled on to people who do well but they end up with so much work that they eventually quit because they get so burnt out.

    Good name to have on your resume, large firm

    Cons

    -Pay is far below market especially when you consider the hours and expectations
    -Attitude of management and leadership conditioning employees to believe PwC is the very best
    -Firm operates as two separate entities essentially-assurance/tax and advisory. Culture is very divisional as advisory is given greater access to firm resources, and far greater pay and benefits
