    Current Employee - Director

    I have been working at PwC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The culture promotes and encourages excellence in everything, and you have access to mountains of information
    You get to work with some of the smartest people in the world
    International opportunities are very real
    Everything has a process

    Cons

    Hours and travel can make a social life impossible
    Partners are fixated on numbers - it's not good enough to improve the client's situation, you have to exceed utilization and revenue targets to even be considered for a good review.
    Utilization, utilization, utilization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge people by what good they do, not just what numbers they bring in. And get some female Partners and MDs in Technology - it's demoralizing to female managers and directors that its still a boys club

    Current Employee - Principal Consultant
    Current Employee - Principal Consultant

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

    Pros

    Exceptional quality of services, talent and market brand. Strong cultural foundation of collaboration, results, and genuine personal engagement.

    Cons

    Firm has grown dramatically in recent years stretch the firms leadership thin. Core values are eroded by numerous acquisitions and sense of identity is at risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Run by the numbers" management strategy results in senior partner abdication of responsibility for developing the firm and a general erosion of the firms core values. Give the firm back to the partners and let them run it.
