Trying to decide between GS Ayco and Deloitte (Summer 2022)

Hey all,

I am trying to decide between two offers for Summer 2022, Deloitte Tax Consulting and GS Ayco PFM. I have some initial thoughts but I'd like to hear what you think:

For Deloitte;

Pros:

In NYC (apart from being in the city, more networking ops, especially if I get a return offer)

Better pay for FT (yes, I'll agree not a huge selling point at the beginning of career)

Like the culture (really stood out to me among everyone I spoke, and I think fitting into the culture is what got me the offer above everything)

Personally prefer consulting

Cons:

Tax Consulting is niche, can be hard to get out of

If I want to move laterally, might have to start over when switching

For GS Ayco;

Pros:

Reputable, can be very helpful at beginning of career

GS Stamp on resume would be huge for recruiting for 2023 FT

Cons:

My understanding is it's basically retail banking

Upstate (In Albany, I would prefer NYC)

I know since it's for a summer internship and not FT I can (and should) continue networking and recruiting for post-grad in 2023, and this means I have more flexibility in the grand scheme of things, but I feel at a crossroads in terms of trying to rationally figure this out. While ultimately my decision at the end of the day, I would appreciate any and all thoughts you may have.

Idk what Ayco is to be honest but I think the stamp is crazy valuable and you might even be able to network into a good SA role for GS next summer.

Not sure were you would go with Deloitte Tax Consulting. To niche imo and not really a stepping stone for IB like Audit or Consulting

I was actually at AYCO out of the Albany office this summer. I think the brand value is nice but Deloitte should probably offer better intern experience. Can PM if u have any further questions.

Would love you hear what you ended up deciding! I'm making a similar decision right now between ayco and a tech consulting role for junior summer.
