EY. Cap underpays and SF is too expensive. EY will pay better and have a better cost of living.

Yeah I'd do a little research on standard of living in SF before considering it. Silicon valley is driving up cost of living to insane levels and now a similar situation is developing in Seattle. I learned the hard way cost of living matters especially early in your career. That said, you're going to get fantastic experience at either firm. Good luck.

From everything I’ve seen I would suggest to stay away from Cap.. mostly staff augmentation work

Their supply chain group is super good. Their Salesforce practice was okay. But personally went to the shitter when they bought iGATE a few years back.

Go for EY as it is really good from a professional development perspective. You will get the real consulting experience. Cap will just give you lots of tech trainings and put you on staff aug projects

Working California is tough. We had real issues staffing campus hires because some were legally considered hourly based on payscale (per California law). Never could get them on out of state projects because projects would have to pay overtime. Houston is a great base because of oil and gas for SAP, as well as a good place to centrally fly out of.

First year at midsize firm, feeling inadequate, especially when certain partners are MIA or don’t really give solid advice on how to complete assignments. Also feel like I’m drowning and cannot say no to partners, they all literally want you to prioritize their work first, which is literally impossible unless I utilize the 24 hours I am given in a day.

Hello everyone, appreciate the feedback and your thoughts. My company did not allow work from home, so I took fmla for 12 weeks. Upon returning, my roles have changed to chemical regulatory, vendor commissions and some account management. I am worried about my career, should I stick in chemical sales and look for another job or regulatory is lucrative field. I want to stay near technical field. Is it a boon or a punishment?
