Great place to start a career, but be proactive (or else...)
of 5 stars
Very smart people, very collegiate environment. Because of the sheer size of the firm, you can find just about any type of project. If you're proactive and know what you want to do, this is a place where you can find your niche and make it happen for yourself.
The PwC name is also becoming increasing well known for consulting. I did not consider the PwC brand to be especially prestigious when I took the offer. However, when out and about, "consulting at PwC" gets a great response, and having it on my LinkedIn has led to several exit opportunities.
Overly large size means that at times you will be at the mercy of bureaucratic nonsense. The real downside, however, is PwC's staffing model. It is driven by HR instead of by the consultants themselves - this means that if you're not efficient and proactive about finding work that you want to be involved in, you can easily end up on one of the large, boring, "cash cow" regulatory compliance projects. You also have little control over which competency you are placed in upon receiving your offer (unless you are coming from the internship program).
Compensation is also slightly lower than industry average for mngmt consulting arm.
Network, network, network. The people here are very nice, and are always willing to help give you a leg out if you reach out to them (even cold approaches, such as linkedin messages or emails).
