Hi,

In general the interviews are not that structured:

  • No clear guidelines for cases, so the case depends on the interviewer
  • 60% chance that it will be marketsizing
  • 40% chance - profitability and general frameworks
  • Interviewers are less demanding than at Big3. unless you meet an ex-big3 consultant as an interviewer
  • For fit I would prepare: Story about yourself; Why consulting; Why PWC; Leadership; Team work; Your questions to the interviewer

McKinsey / ex-Interviewer at McKinsey / I will coach you to rock those interviews

Hi! here are some insights I got:

  • PwC interviews have lots of marketsizing
  • cases are usually less structured than MBB cases
  • interviewers are less demanding than at MBB (unless you have an interviewer with an MMB background, then the case would be very similar to MBB and the interviewer as demanding) – so, if you have any insights on who would be interviewing you, that would be helpful for you to prepare

Hope this helps!

Best,
Daniil
