And let’s be honest here, nobody’s interested in either accounting or investment banking for any reason other than money. In light of that aim, it makes the most sense to me to pick the one that pays the most, because the hours will be long and difficult anyway.
If you have a very specific reason for wanting an [[ACA]] or equivalent, or want to be an accountant or financial director then fair enough. If you just want to get paid, accounting isn’t the way forward!
It is worth noting however that qualified accountants do get fairly well paid (in the grand scheme) and, depending on the role, work managable hours.
Personally, I think I’d have issues working iin any large company- I guess I’m too much of a rebel!
