Flexibility is fantastic here, but career advancement in non line businesses, which tend to skew more female than male, is difficult and more limited. While there is paid maternity leave, some managers hold maternity leave against you when it comes to calculating bonuses and ratings.
PwC is a great place to advance your career, learn leadership skills, etc. Within the the advisory/consulting role, there is A LOT of travel and you will work a lot of hours. I have never felt discriminated against, PwC respects and admires women colleagues. However, work life balance could be better.
Job Satisfaction Level
If you're looking for work life balance, no. PwC has a lot of progress to make in this respect.
Don't expect great pay and if you want to get promoted, make sure you are visible when it is busy season. However, PwC walks the walk when it comes to flexibility and work life balance and the benefits are wonderful. There is no prescribed amount of sick time/days and sick time is for yourself OR caring for an ill family member. Also, sick time covers ANY doctor appointment (they do request that you try to get an early morning or late afternoon appointment, but no one has ever said anything when I can only get a mid-day appointment). I don't have children, women that do have children love the benefit of this policy as it allows them to care for family and still contribute.
If you are in consulting/advisory, then there is definitely travel involved which can or cannot be flexible depending on the client need and team you are working with. This is true for both men and female.
