    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Huge firm. Many many varied opportunities. Massive purchasing power of the firm means the benefits are good. Decent people. Good holidays.

    Cons

    Feels like consulting plays second fiddle to other lines of service, e.g. assurance. Pay is really low compared to Big4 competitors. Progression is not on merit - it's on length of service.

    Advice to Management

    Progression is not on merit - it's on length of service. Deal with this. Also, we need to pay our people more, so that we're in line with other Big4.

    I have been working at PwC full-time

    Pros

    Most people actually care about the career and progress of junior staff and the skill set you learn and experiences you get are second to none

    Cons

    Politics, always politics. There is a relatively low ceiling which you bump into if all you do is deliver the job you are hired to do. It's all about going "above and beyond" but no one can clearly define what that actually means.
