Be sure to vet your line manager before you invest in any project. things move fast and arent always thought through entirely
The parental leave policy is great, but certain male leaders seem to resent people who take advantage of parental leave (both men and women). If you're a man, you'll be discouraged from taking the full 6 weeks, and if you're a woman they'll downgrade your role on an engagement to something less meaningful (essentially "mommy-tracking" you). Note that I've only seen this in the NY office, and PwC is obviously a big place.
To get ahead here, one needs to make some significant work/life balance sacrifices
Overall family friendly, but it does depend on the team and leader.
The Maternity policy has changed since I took it. you now get 12 weeks paid and an additional 12 unpaid which is wonderful. Work hours can be flexible depending on the job and the level.
Network with the men
The only women in the C-suite/leadership team are in HR or PR. While they have a few women in top roles, overall the culture is male-dominated. The Account Teams are almost exclusively male. Creative leads are all male. A man with less experience than I have but in an almost identical job, made almost $20,000 more than I did. Travel is required. It's written into the contract for most client-facing roles that if you don't agree to travel on-demand, they can fire you. This is not good for women with small children, and certainly impossible for single moms unless they had full time care for the kids.
It's very difficult for women to advance beyond Director level here. Departments that are headed by female leaders seem to exhibit this issue much less frequently. Maternity leave is short-term disability and the first week of it must be deducted from earned PTO; 7 weeks following that are paid at 100% and up to a total of 26 weeks at 60% of regular salary.
I've worked here for a year and found it to be the most flexible, empowering workplace I've ever encountered in the last 15 years. While there seem to be some pay inequities across the firm, there are many perks - especially for women who are interested in flexibility (kids) - that make up for some of the more negative aspects of the firm. That said, an important caveat is that I am not a client-facing consultant; the internal roles at Deloitte may not be as lucrative, but they are far more flexible (and the pay ain't terrible!)
