Just looking for some advice from you guys that are far more experienced in consultancy than I am.
I finished my PhD some 4 years ago and have worked in technical roles at Pfizer and GSK (Pharma companies). Due to the current climate in the pharma industry I though now would be the time to look at doing consultancy which is something that has always interested me.
I applied to Tefen, PwC and E&Y and got a good offer from PwC - PIC CIPS that I could not refuse and am very excited about
I am fully aware of the commitments this job requires in terms of working hours and travel commitments but at the same time I have been told that PwC are very flexible with flexible working.
As I am used to the 9-5 jobs and I obviously going into this role a little worried in terms of travel commitments.
Can you guys comment here and give me an idea of the progression through the company I can expect in terms of timings, salaries etc.
Definately want to make the most of this opportunity as I know the doors that this kind of role can open up but dont want it to destroy my personal life considering I am getting married v soon
