That growth has been complemented by strategic acquisitions over the past several years, including Booz & Co, Diamond Management and Technology Consultants, PRTM, Ant's Eye View, BGT and Ray Group International, among others.

These acquisitions added deep experience in strategy, management and technology consulting to PwC's expanded breadth of services and capabilities. Most recently, on April 3, 2014 PwC announced the successful completion of its acquisition of Booz & Co, now going to market as PwC's Strategy&.

The Advisory practice aligns its marketing strategies and messaging to business imperatives that represent the issues and opportunities of primary importance to its clients. These business imperatives help start conversations and bring together insights from across the firm. This integrated thinking helps drive the multi-competency, strategy-through-execution approach that sets PwC Advisory apart in the market. PwC Advisory has been recognized by the analyst community, earning one or more ratings as a leader in every major category of the Advisory business, including strategy, management, technology, risk, forensics and deals, as well as in key investments areas such as human capital, analytics and digital. 

One global network, many members

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is the U.S. member firm of PwC, a global network of firms. Today, the PwC network comprises more than 236,000 people in 158 countries and territories. This international group was created in 1998, with the merger of Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand, two accounting and professional services firms that date back to the mid-1800s. Both Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand began in London, and both grew their global presence both organically and through mergers.

PwC is headquartered in New York and boasts 94 offices across the United States. In FY17, PwC firms provided services to 419 companies in the Fortune Global 500 and more than 100,000 entrepreneurial and private businesses.  While each member firm operates independently within its own geographic locale, there is a considerable amount of cooperation and networking between them, which enables the global network of firms to work as a global entity and on a local scale.

Given its sheer size and country coverage, not to mention the independent setup of its member firms, it should come as little surprise that the services PwC offers vary slightly within the global network of firms. However, all services do fall into one of three core PwC lines of service: tax, advisory and assurance.
