Accenture M&A consulting vs. big 4 TS

Accenture
#1

Hi,

I am currently working in the PwC TS department in London and I have been made an offer from ACN to join their M&A team. Before joining TS I completed the ACA.

I would really appreciate if you could help me with the following

  • what is ACN’s reputation in the M&A area? The team in London is small but its growing a lot.
  • what exit opportunities do I have if I move to ACN? My worry is that ACN is not as strong as BMM in strategy/M&A and therefore if In a couple of years I decide to try to get into a PE fund i will struggle. To me ACN means IT / ops consulting.

Basically I am not sure which of the two career paths will give me more opportunities in the future.

Many thanks,

Jeff
