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

Pros

Best people to work with - very bright and energized
lots of opportunities for training and advancement
very diverse working environment allows to try several different industries

Cons

work/life balance is tough
have to be willing to do alot extra - not just harder hours, but travel and last minute changes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with the recent cost cutting and go back to a more national level with trainings at the associate and senior levels - that is one of the biggest reasons anyone joins a national firm

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1.) Community - I love the people I work with. They are brilliant at what they do, but more importantly they are fantastic people.
    2.) Tremendous opportunity to learn and grow, exposure to senior leadership with clients.
    3.) Personally, I enjoy the travel.

    Cons

    1.) Politics - the partnership structure creates huge challenges to effectively deliver work. If you need expertise from another practice area, good luck getting it easily.
    2.) Leadership support - again, because of how the firm is structured, even if your leadership supports your work and what you're doing, it may not be valued by the rest of the firm. Particularly if it's not in the audit space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the red tape that prohibits employees from moving around, but more importantly, that inhibits our ability to effectively deliver service to clients because we can't "share" expertise and we end up competing internally for projects.
