If I am having visa issues in the US how easy or difficult is it to move to PwC London or a different location?

Yep. Go early, go often. I've done two international transfers (US to AU and back again) and each one took about 9 months

I have friends moving (in finance) to London now and it seems way easier than the US visa BS

Not super easy, is the short answer. I think the U.K. firm isn't aggressively hiring, so you'd need a partner over there to advocate for you. Maybe your US partner could help? Second issue is the moving cost. If you're willing to pay for the move yourself (vs having the firm pay for the move), it will likely be easier to get approval. Finally I have no idea what the visa situation is in the U.K. right now, but I expect it'll be challenging given the Brexit uncertainty. If you can get a partner over there to fight for you, though, it can probably happen.

Depends on your BU.

Brexit definitely adds an additional layer of complexity to the decision. I have another year before either might need to make the move but I need to plan in advance and have those discussions with the partner now to figure out the logistics

Good luck mate!
