I worked at PwC

Pros

    Stressful, yet comparable to family understanding.

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Steady growth path, flexible work, incredible business exposure.

    Cons

    -Work hours can be exhausting as you find yourself making up work on the weekends.
    -Multiple reporting managers, with tight schedules.
    -Enough work that you can never fully get "caught up", which makes your compensation seem very small (example: 2500 billable hours; Associate Salary roughly 60k (major us city); $24 an hour. 2nd/3rd year associates make $1 less an hour than interns and do not receive overtime.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to front your company like a top-tier a finance firm, you need to either hire more people to complete the work, or improve your compensation to match the hours.

    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The culture promotes and encourages excellence in everything, and you have access to mountains of information
    You get to work with some of the smartest people in the world
    International opportunities are very real
    Everything has a process

    Cons

    Hours and travel can make a social life impossible
    Partners are fixated on numbers - it's not good enough to improve the client's situation, you have to exceed utilization and revenue targets to even be considered for a good review.
    Utilization, utilization, utilization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge people by what good they do, not just what numbers they bring in. And get some female Partners and MDs in Technology - it's demoralizing to female managers and directors that its still a boys club
