Before you get all the negative comments, let me ask you this: if someone asked you at 18 if you thought it was possible to get a job at PWC while showing you the statistics applicants who get hired, what would you say?

Anything is possible (within reason)

This is within reason, go for it.

I you might be able to network into a MM bank. Honestly, I think it will be tough if you have 0 finance background. Easier at the analyst level and gets harder the further along you are. You realistically might have to find your way into some big4 transaction advisory group. Laterals from there are quite common

Yes. Not at a BB but a lower to MM boutique is possible.
1) Tailor your résumé to focus on quant work and $ results.
2) Apply everywhere
3) Know your story and learn the technicals

Dear all,

How's it like working for PwC India as SAP Functional Senior Associate?
I have a 5.3y work ex with ACN, as a FSCM consultant (L10 currently, was assured of a L9 effective March, but declined due to growing poor culture within ACN).
Got an offer from PwC India
Current TC: 9.5 LPA.
PwC Offered TC: 19 LPA.
IBM Offered Fixed: 17 LPA
IBM would be a smooth drive, but skeptical to join PwC given the WLB issues, as a lot of folks say.

Any thoughts, comments would be really helpful!

I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?
