Any advice on the following would be much appreciated.
Basically, as a future science grad (2012), I have the following Big Four graduate offers in London:
PwC Risk Assurance (ACA) / KPMG Risk Financial Services (CFA/CISI)
Given that I have no background in Accountancy or Risk, which would you recommend? I have been given the impression that the ACA is very difficult and the CISI is slightly easier, but maybe slightly less respected? Is the CFA an option that I should consider?
In terms of PwC vs KPMG, what are your general impressions. Salary and benefits are similar at both, although KPMG’s office in Canary Wharf was easy on the eye to say the least.
At PwC I have put my choice down as London Top Tier (LTT) whereas KPMG I will be working in FS… any thoughts?
I am trying not to show my preference at the moment so others can comment. Any opinions would be brilliant! I am more than happy to share interview advice and notes I have formed etc…
