You guys on here DO realize that the big 4 are good, reputable firms, right? Like you’re lucky to be here. It may not be MBB but that doesn’t mean it’s trash. 🙄

Deloitte is a lot more stuck-up. Unless it's in Digital, where they're still more professional than Acn quality-wise but people are generally a lot less corporate.

Acn ranges. Generally more approachable (but sloppier) people in Tech. Strat & MC can vary - pretend to be hotshots but clueless with lots more backstabbing.

Interned at a big 4 the summer before graduating. Got a return offer and accepted. Grades went down, partied too much, really didn’t care tbh. Lost the offer after grades were due. Started searching for a job my second semester and within two months I was employed again, arguably for a better firm and role. Let’s just say it’s beneficial.
