    I worked at PwC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Smart people who generally care about your development and well-being. There are times where business supersedes your development interests but that's part of firm life.

    Cons

    They tend not to appreciate tenure and compensation can be pretty poor if you "grow up at the firm". Every minor increase has to be fought for and it can be exhausting. Additionally, some bad leaders slip keep moving up by "talking the talk" and it's frustrating to see bad management/leadership being rewarded.
