Hi all, need some career advice!

I'm currently in audit and want to enter into consulting. I came to know that the starting roles are Analyst roles.
To begin my career, should I look into Analyst roles only in consultancy firms, or is it fine if I take up such roles in other companies for the experience?

I did my Bachelors in Commerce, and I am about to complete ACCA. I have only 1 year of experience in audit in KPMG Global Services.

I recently accepted an offer for Senior Associate at PwC US, and since I'm an international hire, I'll have to opt for CPA. I'm already an ACCA Member and almost done with my ACA qualification. So if anyone here has studied for both CPA and ACCA/ACA, I was hoping to get some insight on how difficult and different CPA is from ACCA/ACA other than the minimum 75% passing score?

I recently interviewed at PwC US (Tier 1) and got an offer for a $92K base salary + a $15K signing bonus. I'm an international hire with a bachelor's and an ACA & ACCA certification both to be completed in the next 2-3 months + 4 YOE. I accepted the offer but later it felt like I got a low offer so I asked the recruiter to reconsider my base salary, if possible. So the recruiter agreed and will be coming back this week with a revised offer. I'm not sure how much I can negotiate after accepting.

Is this true?
