PwC Maternity Leave Comments
  • "I've been here 7 years and had two kids with generous maternity leave (2 weeks before, 6-8 weeks disability leave and six weeks parental leave, separate from vacation time). However, man I am tired! The regular client facing routine is exhausting with kids and I feel like my day and the work never ends. I had a good reputation as a high performer before I had my first kid, as a manager, I have enough flexibility that I can make daycare and a long commute still work for me. As an associate or senior associate it was harder to have flexibility and harder to give to this level because the work has to be done by someone." - Lady Bannockburn
  • "I see a lot of women in upper leadership roles and mobility within the company doesn't seem to be restricted by sex, that being said - having taken maternity leave twice with this company, taking 25% of the year off (or more if you take unpaid leave) can set you back a bit in terms of returning to the workplace and re-establishing your place amongst your peers and re-building relationships. Now that men can take 6 weeks off for paternal leave, hopefully that balances out some." - Madam Jess0121
  • "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." - Lady SelinaK
  • "The flexibility and maternity leave are great, but if you take the time, be prepared to pay with your career progression. Also, unless you are a partner, the flexibility can be somewhat of an illusion. I worked there for almost 8 years and after coming back from maternity leave it was hard to take time for my family and feel like it was accepted. There is definitely harsh judgment from male and sometimes even female colleagues if the full maternity leave is taken." - Lady LalaLu
  • "I worked here for 7 years through Manager. While the Company does have great policies regarding maternity leave, I think people are more challenged by balancing work with ongoing child care responsibilities after the maternity leave time. Client service will always come first and often at the cost of trying to manage any other personal responsibilities, including child care. The competition both within the organization for promotion and for clients makes any individual flexibility plan difficult to maintain." - Lady AuditManager
  • "great company for maternity/paternity and flex work arrangements." - Madam maccman
  • "Great maternity leave and flexible working schedule (i.e. you are encouraged to work from home 2 days a week)" - Lady tiber
