Been offered a position with Accenture and with Willis Towers Watson. WTW WLB seems a lot better, salary is lower but I will be completing insurance qualifications along side it. I’m scared of Accenture because of what I have heard about the culture and I am also put off Management consulting because of the lack of variety that can come with it (especially in a technology focused company). Am I making the right decision by choosing WTW?

They are very different jobs. Accenture is a consulting company (has a tech preference but also does every other type of normal consulting) so that should offer much *more* variety. You work on a series of client projects with each one typically being different from the last.
WTW is just an insurance company, right? So that is a much more day-to-day normal job. If you want to work in insurance (which is a stable and well paid job) then go for it. However I always got the impression insurance was boring. I heard it was ‘for people that found accounting too exciting’.

I work at Accenture Strategy. I help aerospace companies with their supply chain issues.

Ah ok. I mean, risk stuff can be pretty cool. A friend of mine codes for an asset manager. They developed an algorithm that uses weather data to track flood risk for their property investments. Really advanced stuff.

Yeah Accenture is huge. It can suck or it can be great. Depends where you land.

Unless you're doing down the actuarial path or can wiggle your way into WTW's asset management/investment portfolio advisory group, pick ACN. Easier to leave ACN vs WTW for exit opportunities if you end up hating the job
