Pros: challenging work, very good compensation.
Cons: not for the weak or those looking to 'phone it in', you must truly prove yourself to get promoted, work/life balance can be very limited
As a high performance organization, PwC provides a challenging environment which cultivates personal integrity, knowledge, skills, and tenacity within an individual, preparing them for growth and greater success in their career.
While you have the opportunity to develop and refine skills which can make you extremely valuable in your career, it isn't – more... for everyone. You will work harder and sacrifice more working for a 'Big 4' firm than for just about any other organization. PwC is in some ways like the US Marine Corps. It is highly disciplined, promotes a 'can do' attitude, mobilizes quickly on engagements, and expects a outstanding performance from its employees. In my opinion it is the best of the big 4 in regard to advisory work. – less
