    Cons

    - poor work-life balance: it is a classic of consulting - a lot of politics: it’s a large organisation now - some teams are much stronger than others

    I worked at Strategy& full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Great colleagues who genuinely look out for each other and teach each other new skills (especially true if you join on grad scheme) -Good L&D environment if you have initiative and time to invest in resources available -Wide variety of interesting projects and collaboration with other parts of PWC will teach you a lot about a range of industries and financial services and offer occasional global travel -Good attitude to flexible working and improving attitude to work life balance

    Cons

    -Poor (but improving) knowledge management and poor consistency of internal processes makes the business difficult to navigate -Inconsistent and below market remuneration policies fail to compensate during periods of poor work-life balance -Internal politics with other parts of the PWC network and the regulatory side effects of PWC’s audit business consumes significant staff time and energy -Inspirational leadership can be hard to come by when needed most -Easy to feel aimless and neglected in the PWC behemoth

    I have been working at Strategy& full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Incredibly smart and friendly colleagues - Interesting projects where even junior grades get good client exposure - Great opportunities to travel due to the size of the PwC Network and cross competency projects (i.e. projects with strategy, deals and tech elements) - Competitive salary (especially at Manager level onwards) - MBA sponsorship for top business schools for Senior Associates onwards

    Cons

    - PwC influence expense culture can negatively impact travel (only really an issue on long haul flights if you are Senior Manager or under though) - Brand is still developing and not as strong as MBB (however new brand refresh and thought leadership push seems positive) - Typically long hours Monday to Thursday
