    No Opinion of CEO

    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

    Advice to Management

    Try to maintain Strategy&'s premium positioning within PwC, maintain the distinct culture, continue to invest in the brand.
