PwC Pharma & Life Sciences/Management Consulting

Rank: Chimp | 5

Hello everyone,

I am interning with PwC Advisory this summer, within their Tech Consulting department. I was curious when I was assigned to Tech Consulting department, because I really don't have a tech background. Also, I am primarily interest in consulting within the pharma/life sciences industry. So I have two questions for those who have worked in PwC Advisory:

1) How difficult is it to move from Tech Consulting to Management Consulting within PwC?

2) Is easy to be staffed on Pharma/Life Sciences within their Health Industries division? Is it geography dependent, based on which office you're employed at?

Thanks

From my understanding, PwC along with the other Big 4s tends to place you in any project with a need regardless of your group. For example, I know some people in Strategy Consulting working on an audit project for a couple of months.

I can say for Deloitte S&O this is not true; consulting stays within consulting. You may be aligned to strategy but get staffed on a process redesign project, but never on systems integrations or especially audit (honestly, most management consultants are not qualified to do either)

I'm in the same boat, I want to switch to MC from TC and work in Healthcare or Banking and Capital Markets. If you don't mind me asking, what office are you working in?
