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.
