Trying to decide being a security analyst at Accenture or an engineer at Walmart. Comp is about the same. Both across the country from me. At Walmart I have an idea of what I would be doing already though. It is boiling down to choosing between the career advancement Accenture might give me or the predictability of working at a company like Walmart in LCOL so I can stack money. I want to break into cloud security which ACN is known for, but Idk how i feel about the randomness of consulting

Which city for Accenture and group / what comp if you don’t mind sharing? If you’re coming in entry level, decent runway for raises every 2-3 years with promotions. Could stick it out a couple years and then jump to a better opportunity in industry. You’re right in that consulting will be more unpredictable but if you don’t have a lot of personal obligations right now, could be a good move for wider exposure to more opportunities in a short amount of time

As an analyst I would choose Accenture for culture and an opportunity to be surrounded by high performing peers. It’s great for young people especially once we get back to in person which will come.

Accenture then to industry and then back to consulting…
