    Current Employee - Senior Associate - Advisory

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move around lines of service, geographic location, and different industries within the firm. Coaching / learning is a key focus - lots of shared knowledge to benefit from. A high level of responsibility is given to you at a young age if you pursue it. A great place to launch your career.

    Cons

    Pay is below market for most skill sets you would learn / utilize here. The review process is broken - working on big projects / for big clients is looked upon very positively when in essence you often learn less from these experiences compared to smaller deals (or audit clients) with smaller teams. The environment is extremely progressive when it comes to communication, feedback, diversity, thought leadership, brand design, etc. This is not always a great thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the utilization / billable hours system, pay a bit more, turnover will decrease substantially and you can then actually choose who should stay and who should stay on board opposed to letting employees dwindle on forever.

    I have been working at PwC full-time (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.
