I am lucky to have offers from PwC Reading and BDO London. The PwC is for Assurance and I will take the CA from ICAS qualification. The BDO London offer is for Technology Risk Assurance and I will take the ACA from ICAEW and the CISA qualifications.
Is the ACA from ICAEW qualification more prestigious than the CA from ICAS? I ask this because majority of the board members of FTSE 100 companies are ACA qualified rather than CA from ICAS.
In terms of location would being at PwC in the Reading office put me at a disadvantage when compared to the BDO offer that is for the London office, as the BDO London may present more opportunities.
The fact that PwC is part of the Big 4 and BDO is not, even though the PwC offer is for the Reading office, does the PwC offer present more career opportunities and would be better to have on your CV and would give you more scope to move into say the investment banking sector.
Thanks in advance.
