In consulting at PwC, as is the case with consulting anywhere, its key to find the right team/group whose subject matter and broader values align with your own.
I think, like many large companies, culture is dependent upon the department and exective heads of the department. For me, I feel very much respected as a woman and have not felt diminished due to my gender by anyone internally. The recently added flex time policies are great and were very much needed. I do think there is room for improvement with promoting women beyond the director level positions, seems to be very few female VPs and Ps.
There are groups within the company that are still heavily male-dominated, as is senior leadership, but the overall culture promotes progressive thinkingâ€”including a large employee special-interest group for women.

I don't think that you have to be a man to get ahead there, but you have to find a leader who is friendly to families. The corporate policies are extremely family friendly, and the tax and audit practices have very predictable hours and busy times. In consulting, partners have a lot of leeway to run their practices as they see fit. If you're going to be there in a consulting role, each industry and functional practice has different expectations about travel and hours, and you need to find a group that suits your family's needs.

Great maternity leave, generour PTO, 12 weeks paid maternity leave.
They are flexible and respectful. They have reasonable policies and good insurance choices.
Despite being a women's empowerment organization their benefits and especially maternity leave policies are not family friendly. Most leadership positions are held by men and the culture is very top down.
