Agree with Accenture. Stop viewing things through a prestige lens and do what's better for you career path. I'd argue if you don't know that path big 4 may give u broader industry exposure

Amex hasn't been doing to well lately with that Costco cobranding mess. The two consulting roles are different. If you're an analyst or associate I actually think you're better off with the Big 4.
