    I worked at PwC full-time

    Pros

    Working with some of the best and brightest on some amazing clients, in a hugely competitive environment.

    Cons

    From a people perspective, the company is too confined by "the way we do things" without actually thinking whether that is the best way. Being a partnership it is more concerned about the here and now, as opposed to future value and locking in the best people, hence they often leave too soon out of frustration.
