Advice needed!! Have 8+ years of compliance/legal/in house experience (not privacy law except HIPAA). I really want a Privacy Counsel role so I took and passed the CIPP/US and CIPM exams this past year. I’ve been offered an Associate Director job at PwC. Is this a good stepping stone to a Privacy Counsel role? How long should I expect to work at PwC before I could apply to Privacy Counsel roles??

No. It’ll be hard to transition out of a consulting job to a counsel role. I wouldn’t accept a consulting job if you want to be in a counsel role

OP of course you are since you don’t have any experience as privacy counsel yet and I’m guessing you aren’t applying for very junior privacy roles. In-house at a hospital is definitely a better segue to privacy counsel
