    I have been working at PwC full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Working with some very large companies on large IT implementation projects, this has given me the opportunity to work with some very influential people, CFO's of FTSE100 for example. A great place to add real value to your skillset, both with soft skills and technical skills. The firm is really growing in the technology consulting area, ERP and RPA is a big growth area so it is exciting to be part of a growing market!

    Cons

    Long hours! Not the most glamorous office locations to work in! It really is down to you to manage your workload, the management are very delivery focussed and will not tell you to stop working if you don't say. This often results in people getting burnt out which adds a question to how sustainable this career is, but is great for a few years!

    Pros

    There is a lot about the firm that is great. It is a great culture that values collaboration (below the partner level), that truly values diversity of its employees, and that is very collegial. The Advisory business has grown significantly over the past 5 years since reconstituting a consulting arm with the acquisition of BearingPoint, followed by other large acquisitions of PRTM, Diamond and most recently Booz & Company...

    Cons

    As noted by many, and as inferred by by comment around individual performance above, if you want to get ahead here you WILL work your rears off. Late nights and weekends, with minimal complaining, are the norm for those who are successful. The firm has tried to add in concepts of "flexibility" into our work force - but that is generally ignored in practice by those people actually delivering client work (great thought,...

    Advice to Management

    There are so many good things about this firm, but this obsession with being "different" isn't always good. It is good to differentiate on the things that matter, but you hobble us with terrible technology, put performance measurement systems that are tied to our compensation in place that are nothing more than a popularity contest, and then expect us to work our hinds off for you with big huge smiles on our face. You...
