I had a very interesting conversation with my ex PwC colleague. Ex becoz I am no longer there. After maternity leave she was told subtly by the practice director (who I know) that if she wants to look outside of PwC it may help her in career and he would support her. When did going on maternity leave become a taboo in PwC? Is this how firm is leading by example these days on equal employment? Disgusted.
