Yes. The culture of PwC has changed dramatically in the past 3-4 years. This isn’t the firm I left and I wish I had never returned.


Funny I got laid off from Pdubs with a bunch of awesome people 3 years ago... seeing a lot of low performing PMO types that took forever to make Manager get Sr Manager now... I guess high utilization trumps all else...

Glad I’ve moved on to companies that have direction and are growing

No. There is a reason one leaves and although the next job might not be perfect/dream fit, it doesn’t make the last place any better.


I boomeranged and a lot more happy this time. I think it’s because I know what’s out there and I’m not idealizing industry jobs. I recognize the trade offs and have made a more informed decision


Definitely not

I’m a projectile and very happy

Genuine question: is it possible / how do you request to get laid off? My coworkers are fine but I genuinely hate the work in consulting and this, coupled with the pandemic and BLM and family issues at home has been destroying my mental health that I cry myself to sleep every night. Every day feels like hell and the only thing that keeps me going is that I’m one day closer to my death, work gives me no chance to rest and take care of my mental health and I am ready to quit, even without a backup

His goal is to pivot to PE S&O eventually.
