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

Your experience may depend entirely on which part of the organization you work for- some are far more flexible than others.

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.

12 paid / unpaid
The firm offers sabbaticals to employees once they reach certain milestones, which can be added to maternity leave time.
Not for Evaluation and Reviews
Maybe. 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.

Great company, but they need to work on a healthier work/life balance if they want to keep talented employees.

If you are a working mom, be cautious. Be up front about the flexibility you need. They definitely aren't going to offer it to you, you have to stand up and take it.

6 paid / unpaid
After 6 weeks STD (not at full salary) you have to take your vacation. If you don't have enough it's unpaid.
Not for Pay, Promotion
Maybe. It depends...some managers are very old school and offer zero flexibility. Asset Management is statistically dominated by men. I think it's getting better but it's so slow. They don't even offer laptops to employees! And maternity leave?? Nope nope nope. Short term disability is it. No additional paid leave. You have to take your vacation or go unpaid to get your 12 week FMLA. There is no paternity leave.

The benefits are great, but men are often promoted more quickly because it is a boys club. It is about who you know and many of the men do not take the time to get to know the women.

8 paid / unpaid
You can take 8 weeks paid and 8 weeks unpaid.
Not for Promotion
Maybe. Great benefits (such as maternity leave)! However, the company is going through downturns and letting people go. It is a boys club, so being a woman is only a problem if you are hoping to move up in the company.
Job Security. People are being let go rapidly.

I was at another firm when I had my kids, but they are very respectful of maternity leave. No paid maternity leave though. A number of women work on flex time schedules. I have flexibility in when and where I work to an extent. I wish there were more female partners.
