      Pros

      A culture of mindfulness towards employees

      Cons

      Because it's part of the wider PwC network, you may have to do non-strategy related work

      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Great people, great firm, but too much politics and no team wide talent management strategy

      28 Apr 2021 - Manager in London, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good alternative to MBBs and Tier2 (OW, RB, ATK): - Smart and committed colleagues - Great managers and directors - Great industry specific knowledge - Interesting projects - London based job so limited travel

      Cons

      Reward talent and hard work, in a structure way and winning good work: - Low pay compared to competitors, at par for juniors but very low for managers and above - Unclear career progression above manager, a lot of politics involved for promotions - Sales focused culture at the top, so partners tend to accept any project size and any fee even if it doesn’t add creds or skills to the team. This leads to understaffing and often team burnout - Long working hours (although this is a norm in the industry, sometimes it is hard to switch off before midnight for a few weeks/months) in addition to weekend work and holiday cancellations - Siloed organisation: hard to cooperate with other parts of PwC

      Best consultancy after MBB

      Pros

      - Leading compensation package - Broad industry coverage - Global network - Partners who are operating at the top of their sector/functional expertise - Values work-life balance

      Cons

      Although it is rare for mediocre talent to pass the interview process and enter top consultancies, the proportion of subpar consultants at S& is noticeably higher than in MBB.
