I'm looking around at some options for after I graduate from my Master's degree and came across Baker Tilly. To be honest, I don't know much about them except they seem to be a tier 2 firm. Their marketing material seems to paint them in a good light (always does), but my real question is, does anybody know much about the accounting/business advisory service side of their business? i.e. reputation/type of clients etc.
If I'm finding it difficult to get into one of the 'big 4' firms, would this be a good place to start and then jump ship to a big four firm? Additionally, I would be looking to eventually get into industry (preferably FMCG) and thus need the opportunity to build contacts and then enter into a good management position in a firm. Would Baker Tilly be able to provide me with this opportunity? I've had a look on-line, but so far things have been slightly inconclusive.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
