I start in BSI at Accenture after new year and have selected 'Products' as my preferred operating group. I think I may find 'Financial Services' more interesting and suggested this to a few consultants who said I should definately go for products over FS.
Anyone have any thoughts on each of these operating groups apart from which one is more interesting to you?
products = sainsuburys, dixons, stella artois, boots, unliever and fmcg.
fs= insurance companies, LSE, ftse, banks etc etc
Thanks Pedro but I'm more looking for opinions on what each operating group is like to work in?
I actually think pedro's point is pretty relevant. I really don't think there is much between the Operating Groups apart from the industries you will find yourself working in. I certainly do not detect much in the way of difference interms of content or quality of work between my various friends in different OGs. You may also want to bear in mind the travel aspect - If you work in FS you have better chances of working in London.
Overall it really boils downt to which industry you are most interested in.
One of my main concerns was that if i decided to make the jump to do an mba and get into IB, experience in products would be far less relevant.
