Healthcare

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.

Difficult to move up the ladder and have a family. Only women with work life balance do internal work not client facing.

Start Intern

January 1970

As a student intern, I can already tell that this firm really values its employees of all genders, races, sexualities, ages and backgrounds. PwC works hard to show a variety of different paths to success and accomadate the needs of its workers with all different lifestyles. It provides a strong community of mentors of all different background. You can see the commitment to diversity in the U.S. leadership team and in every level of the organization from there down. I am happy to work with them.

Maternity and working parent policies are very good; the negatives of the job are industry standard (long hours, busy seasons, juggling clients, etc.)

Depending on the group you are in, your life might be great. In certain groups/markets, the work hours are insane.

    The ability to use the firm's work-life balance related benefits varies greatly by practice/group and project team.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Great benefits, but in my experience, men are paid more than women.
