PwC PIC Grad v Deloitte TI Grad

 
#1 PwC PIC Grad v Deloitte TI Grad

Hi guys,

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.

Think Deloitte have finished their grad recruitement this year. if so it would be Sept 2010 before you could start. That's another 15 months away. All grads start in Sept.

i. Don't think it'll make a difference but you'll have to explain why you're ditching your ACA given the current climate.

ii. Depends on the project. Some of my mates coast along, I've gone past 12 fairly regularly but I'm probably not alone on that respect.

iii. It's not a bad firm but probably no better either. Has a much bigger presence in consulting but that's more the fact PwC don't really have a presence per se in consulting.
