Will non big 4 Audit hold me back from a future Management/Financial Consulting Job?

Hi,

I have recently been offered a graduate position at a non big four Audit firm and was wondering what my chances would be of getting into a consulting firm once i complete the ACA qualification?

I am hopefully going to graduate with a 2:1 from a Russell Group University studying accounting and finance and have achieved good A levels (A*AA).

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

With those kind of grades and qualification why aren't you applying for top 4 firms?

Also are you suggesting post your ACA you want to move to a consulting firm to be a Management consultant? If so why do your ACA?

I have applied to the big four and i am waiting for interviews for two. However i have been waiting for a few months so i am not hopeful they will give me an interview in the end, especially as I got through to the interview stage for internships last year before they ran out of spaces. The reason i have an offer from a non big 4 firm is because i did an internship with them over the summer.

The reasons i have not applied to management consulting firms are 1) i was late deciding i want to do consulting rather than audit, so many application rounds have closed and 2) i would like to obtain the ACA qualification as it provides a safety net as well as learning core skills about business.

So therefore i have applied for a few consulting firms that offer the chance to study for the ACA or other qualifications, though these seem very competitive.

My main question is if i end up qualifying with this non big 4 firm am i going to find it seriously hard to move into consultancy after and is there anything i can do to limit this detrimental effect?

Unfortunately I think big 4 audit is detrimental to a consulting job, let along lower firms.

Anyway, best of luck.
