    Can get great exposure. Many opportunities to learn new things. The company is not stingy, so getting expenses reimbursed is easy.

    Get to interact with the top management of the clients at early stage of your career. You get good exposure to various aspects of consulting while working with the teams in different projects which hons your overall personality.

    Not that I can think of.

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    + The name draws big clients and interesting projects.
    + Good benefits, at par with other corporates.
    + The recent focus on flexibility means greater scope for working from home or taking sabbaticals, as long as your manager/Partner is on board.
    + Upward feedback is taken fairly seriously.
    + Peer culture is mostly supportive, not too brutal or cut-throat .

    Cons

    - Poor work-life balance.
    - Very limited cross-LOS work opportunities.
    - Compensation is low relative to comparable firms and the kind of work load you take on.
    - Most importantly, the firm does not go for the best and the brightest as a matter of policy, focusing instead on tier-2 colleges and employee pools (can't afford the really good ones, apparently) so you don't really work with the best, which limits your learning after a while. The good folks leave sooner or later, leaving behind mostly mediocre people who stick with the firm and rise through the ranks. Which probably explains why none of my managers seemed truly inspirational.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on being able to afford some truly outstanding employees, otherwise the workplace does not inspire or challenge enough. Also, create more opportunities for job-relevant training and cross-LOS projects.
