    I have been working at PwC full-time

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities to work with some great people and to grow your career. Generally varied projects and team camaraderie. Decent salaries and good benefits. A very flexible environment when you are more senior. The leadership team are amazing and the firm's values are becoming more modern.

    Cons

    Depending on your department and direct senior team there are long hours, and expectation that you'll drop everything for work. The firm is becoming very metrics driven which benefits some departments and is to the detriment of others. Salaries can be higher at equal seniority external to practice, however less of a growth opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Less of a focus on metrics will make people happier - it encourages bad attitudes by people who think that 'chargeable work' and overtime is all that matters.

    They offer a lot of opportunities and training. You can work with a varied team on a wide array of client engagements.
