Offers from Deloitte and EY...what do I do?


First of all a big mahoosive thank you to everyone who contributes to this forum, it was a major help to me throughout the application process…if I can offer any assistance to anyone, please PM :slight_smile:

I’ve received 2 offers for a 2k12 start…

EY - Corporate Finance - Transaction Support

Deloitte - Restructuring

So I have a few questions…

  1. Any advice on which one to go for? Which would you choose and why??

  2. What’s the best way of rejecting one of the offers? As I’ve signed a contract for one and made a verbal agreement to the other at the moment (oops)

  3. Is there any chance of playing them off each other to improve my starting wage? Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks :slight_smile:


To answer point 3 i would NOT play each other off personally. The big 4 design their starting salaries based on location for grad schemes, nothing more. Negotiation will not only be pointless but I think will give a very bad impression that you’re overly concerned about money and seems a little dirty playing one of the other.
