Are the PWC advisory layoffs over? Was it just contained to FS? Anyone heard it spilling into S&?

I hear there is still one more person they are letting go, they have a soul patch they won't get rid of.


I haven't heard anything else about it.


It was beyond FS for sure, but seems to be done - or at least being done very quietly.


^^^ lol


Being done extremely quietly - firm is saying a lot are "performance based" but no one I know who has been let go had any performance issues. Heard they will be ramping up in S& due to deep bench


Yeah.... Been on beach for 3 months here ... I know I will not make it


S& was impacted by the layoff but I believe only on a small scale. I only know of one person who either quit in sync with layoffs or (more likely) was let go. This person was in Legacy PwC and moved into S&. Seemed technically capable to me but maybe had issues getting staffed or wasn't well rounded.


Well if it's been this quiet and it's been going on extensively, must have been some nice exit packages...

I doubt as nice as the bonus payout would have been in a couple months but I am only speculating.

Good point, but my group gets paid out in September, and chances are the bonuses wouldn't have been great for those laid off anyhow.

Doesn't all of PwC get paid in Sept now?

Anyone here familiar with Dalberg? How are the hours and the culture? Are the people and work inspiring?


Hi All, single female with endometriosis here. The last few months have been really trying for me, for many obvious reasons and some personal. But wanted to share that this morning my doctors office received the authorization approval from AETNA to use the egg freezing benefit. I cried all morning as this isn’t something I’d normally be able to afford on my own. Never give up hope even during the most difficult moments. ❤️


Do you treat yourself after receiving a bonus? If so, any suggestions?
