Q&A With PwC Employees

Asked to all employees at PwC

  • Top Employee Response

    There are not enough women in leadership positions.

  • Like many professional services firms, PwC loses lots of highly-ranked women once they have children. In the past 10 years, they've instituted better flex-time options and even off-reading where women can leave for up to 5 years but stay linked in for training and then return to work. Great options for women who want to be home with little ones but then return once kids are in school. But, that being said, certainly more women are needed in the highest ranks.

  • low. very low

Asked to the Operations Department at PwC

  • Completely depends which Operations dept you're referring to. Do you mean a specific local office? Do you mean a Line of Service team at the National level? The above answer can't possibly encompass every single ops team across the firm or even across the country. I've worked with exceptionally talented and dedicated Ops leaders while others have left me wondering how they possibly got the job they have. But, more are in the former category than latter.

  • Terrible. Political. Infighting. Focused on PR and individual agenda.
