ACN hands down, they’re killing us in the market. We don’t do “true cyber” work, we’re also facing a lot of issues, and many of our PPMD leaders have left for other firms/jobs. SMs are also dropping like flies.

long term - accenture is better because they will teach you how to deliver cyber security projects. That is what non-consulting firms want. SHort term - it is an easier transition to ey since you both speak the same language

I worked at EY for a time, the only hands on keyboard folks were in pentesting and a very few select specialized areas. I would go with Accenture of the two choices just based on that alone. I'm dealing with a couple of people at my current firm that come from big 4, quite a few existing team members are having a very hard time working with them as we are a practical application shop.

Which current firm?

Im sure there can be a lot of different experiences at EY, mine seems different from other people's in this thread. I'm a manager and I still do 90% hands on technical work. I know plenty of other qualified technical people in our appsec and pentesting teams.

@EY3 which team are you in - are you also in the pentesting team?
