i heard they are good. Its not easy getting into. To get a job there, you really have to know your stuff as they not only consult with very smart ppl ( e.g. hospital CEO's), but also produce a lot of research reports.
I guess the key to getting in will be network ( those jobs wont be readily posted). Obviously, your chances are better if you already are an employee of pwc.
Slary, i cannot say for certain, but i am suuming its market, depending on subject matter knowledge, professionalism, work ethic, comm skills, etc
