PwC has consistently been focused on extending flexibility for working women, whether it's the option for telecommuting and working from home part or full-time, flexible work hours, extended leave with peer support at work for mothers transitioning into the workforce, working mom mentors, etc.

PwC is very political, but has good benefits for working parents and a comparable healthcare package to industry standards

workload is very stressful. Most Risk Assurance leadership women do not have families.

Long hours expected making it hard to have a family. High concentration of women at bottom while mostly men in key leadership positions

At PwC, you will be asked to work hard, long hours. I truly believe that the rewards of being at PwC far outweigh the negatives of a hefty workload. PwC Technology Consulting teams specifically are making drastic moves in order to get more senior female leadership.

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.

12 weeks paid, and the other 4 were saved vacation.

I would recommend it to younger women if they wanted to get some consulting experience under their belt. The amount of blatant sexism varies by group in advisory, so there are some groups that will provide better experiences. They also have decent maternity leave policies, but are not great at re-integrating women post maternity leave

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.

The firm offers sabbaticals to employees once they reach certain milestones, which can be added to maternity leave time.

Policies
I would recommend to women who don't have children and don't want children in the future. This job doesn't leave much time for family and whether your current manager/partner values that is a crapshoot at best.

It's easy to have flexible time if you're comfortable speaking up.

No company is perfect, but this is the first I've seen that is proactive about bringing diversity and inclusion front and center. I'm continuously impressed by measures leadership takes to drive conversations AND impact.

Maternity leave is great here, some work it out to take as much as 6 months off.
