I've currently been working at PwC within PIC under an ACA training contract for the past 20 months. The fact that I'm under a training contract means that I get paid a pittance and I'm about half way through it but I'm not terribly bothered if I had to drop it.
I'm currently applying for Deloitte TI under their graduate scheme so I've got a few questions:
i. Will 20 months consulting experience with PwC be an advantage or will they see it as being too long for me to be applying for a graduate position?
ii. Obviously there are differences in the work involved in the two firms but what are the differences in the culture? I've been lucky in PIC in that I've rarely had to work long hours, how is it within Deloitte?
iii. Is moving to Deloitte a good idea at the moment? In my uninformed opinion I'd rank them both equally.
