    I worked at PwC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic people - made some friends for life
    People strove to do the best they could on their deliverables
    Provided learning and development which was useful and stretched my thinking about strategic projects

    Cons

    Good energy to start but fell off over time as the partners pinched and brutalised staff to make their numbers
    Dog eat dog - hard to trust other staff who were stealing ideas and stakeholder relationships to climb ahead

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be mindful of the politics which can eat at the soul of your staff

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great coaching/mentoring culture. Excellent exposure to blue chip clients. Will learn heaps and have opportunities to travel the world. Young enthusiastic vibe and generally surrounded by like minded intelligent people.

    Cons

    Can be very long hours and your experience will depend on the particular partners/directors and managers you work for. For example, all the really good audit partners and directors left the office I was working with in somewhat of an exodus and the remaining ones didn't seem to care about the staff as much and appeared to be purely focused on partner incomes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get too greedy. Value your staff.
