PWC Strat Practise

Consultant

Can anyone give me the no-strings attached as to the above? What are typical engagements, the actual work involoved and what as a consultant you should enjoy and be good at to do well there?

Similarly, what is the salary progression from a C2 (three years in consulting) towards manager?

Thanks in advance

IGU Advisor

This the Advisory Services' M&A advisory team you're talking about? I thought they only branded as the PwC strategy group for graduate recruiting these days, but perhaps not. Confusing, no?

Primary work is on M&A analyses, research & number-crunching, and making pretty presentations afterwards. They have done a lot of joint work with my lot in the PFI/PPP advisory team and been sending people out to pitch for work with p/e groups lately (haven't seen much come of it yet, but could be the next big thing - if you have experience there they'll like it I think). Consultants tend to be ACA's, a few ACCA/CIMA as well, but mostly coming internally from the vast PwC reservoirs. Culture is fairly uniform with rest of PwC so pretty conservative, strait-laced, accounting-first approach (don't mean that negatively - I'm a PwC ACA myself). Ergo, progression to Manager is on the same framework as rest of the firm to enable swapping in and out - good, clear framework and explicit timescales - make Manager in 5 yrs if all goes well.

Yes it is the Advisory team and being only 1 year into a post-graduation career, you can see where I got 'Strategy Group' from.

Am currently working in a full service firm (not ACN) in their grad scheme and am going to puch myself through as much of CIMA as possible and then jump ship into more financial analysis/nu mber crunching, 'accounting first'type roles. There's only some much people and change work an economics grad can handle.

Is there anything I should develop/work on/seek experience in over the next couple of years to make such a transition easier/more successful etc?

Thanks for your advice

Yes I'd say you should work on your grammar and spelling and then become an auditor would suit someone who cant be bothered with people or change

Some of us have more pressing issues than this forum and when we can squeeze a minute in to write a post, unfortunately don't have the time to check spelling and grammar. For this I can only apologise but hope my message was delivered in such an error ridden paragraph.

Your post above bores me G, you've embarrassed yourself with a useless petty comment. Never mind

No, Con is in the wrong here

Con,

it is exactly because of posts like yours that Tony needs to divide this site into graduate and experienced forums - stop behaving like a child you petty graduate.

A potential client..

that is who I be. Think about the level of professionalism you should exhibit on a site like this. You never know who reads these forums.

PLEASE DELETE ABOVE POSTS

Can we divide the board between those posts that warrant appearing on the site, and those that do not?
