Help me decide on an offer! Accenture Business Systems Integration Consulting Analyst vs JP Morgan vs Citi

Subscribe

Hey guys,

I will be graduating in a year with Computer Engineering degree. I have a few offers that I need to choose from.

I have interests in programming and software development. I want to work at a place that will help me develop my skills in coding and software development. Please let me know of any prior experience you might have with these companies or any advice on picking a career path!

1. Accenture Business Systems Integration Consulting Analyst. I have been assigned to Technology Architecture role. I'll be working from the NY office but will need to travel to client sites as this is a consulting position.
2. Citi Application Developer- I'll be working as a technology analyst in NY.

3. JP Morgan Application Developer- Again, this is a technology analyst position in NY.

All 3 companies are offering competitive compensation with Accenture offering the most.
I want to use my first job to gain technical experience, learn and network in order to ultimately work in a technology firm as software engineer. Therefore, quality of projects that I work on matters a lot.
Basically, I need to decide whether I want to go the technology consulting route or technology-analyst-in-a-bank route. I don't mind the travel that is involved in consulting. I actually like the idea of working at different client sites.

Thanks guys!

To be blunt, I think you'd be better off posting this question on a different website. Not too many developers on here.

Based on all of the answers following this post, I would say @turtles is 100% spot on. OP doesn't give a shit about finance exit opps, and his future employers won't care nearly as much about the finance brand name on his resume. The skills he acquires are far more important.
