Hey WSO folks, I am at a cross-road here and I would love to hear your opinions.
Stat: Rising senior at a top 50 national university, top 10 undergrad business school with a Management Information Systems(MIS) business degree.
I am currently in the BTA program for one of the front offices of. I like the program and the people, but the work isn't that interesting, or at least I don't see myself doing it FT for more than 2 years... I am worried about exit ops with Deloitte BTA.
The tricky part is that the Deloitte FT offer for BTA will expire in August(deadline non-negotiable), butcampus recruiting doesn't start until September.
Note, I am in the BTA program, which is more on the technology side, not the BA program, which Deloitte calls it S&O.
I am definitely more inclined to do more strategy work as all of my school involvement as well as my entrepreneurial efforts dealt with strategic work.
I want to attend a top 7 business school a few years after undergrad, Deloitte's technology practice actually sends many candidates to top schools such as Tepper, Booth, Dartmouth etc.
I have read a lot of negative comments towards Deloitte, both S&O and Technology. But most of those comments were pretty old. Has Deloitte gotten better since then?
Should I risk it and turn down the Deloitte offer to go for MBB or stick with BTA with Deloitte?
I am a top performer with good grades and active involvements. Case interviewers with MBB will be hard, but willing to take the challenge.
Any insights would be highly appreciated!
