Accenture is tempting only if you wanna pursue on IT Consulting/Advisory/Implementation... Resource RGM is under Consulting...

Accenture's starting pay is from 3K onwards. Big4's starting pay is RM 2000-2200 depending on which Big4.

Anyway here are my thoughts... you should take the Accenture internship and give it a try at IT consulting. If you like it after you graduate you'll be in a better position to join them.

If you don't, after you graduate you can still join one of the Big4s. They are dying for staff and if your results meet their minimum requirements they'll surely take you in for Financial Audit.  No worries on whether you've done your internship or not.

I think the question of any workplace environment is hard to judge because it all depends on the personality of the worker. For example, a person who likes to be motivated and challenged all the time would find a demanding job very meaningful while people who like routine type of work might find operations type of work to be meaningful.

For now, i have received an offer for internship with Accenture Malaysia. I am placed under Resources RGM (whatever that means..) as part of the consulting team, i suppose. I have even been assigned to a project manager-guy-person-thing-boss. It's just a matter of accepting the offer.

what do u mean by resources rgm? i think u have mistaken it by resources og.
and one more thing, you may or may not be doing accounting related stuffs. going into resources means that you'll be assigned to project for companies involved in resources (like oil & gas company).

But i just got an update; Accenture really likes to send you off overseas.

Someone was sent to Egypt after only 3 months in starting work, and he's still there now working on a project.

Another guy was sent to Holland on his SECOND day!!

Another guy was also sent to Holland on the day he started~!!

In fact, in my offer letter it's stated that i might be asked to do local or overseas trip with my team. That would be very good experience for an internship!
*
this depends very much on which project you are assigned to. if it's local based, u'll just stuck here.

good luck and all the best.

Hmmm.. Any idea for the internship for IT field?
I mean is it good? I'm Biz student and will it be too unrelated?

Some uni had listed big 4 as internship company and the chances for getting into big 4 is high if ur supervisor know ppl inside, he/she can recommend u get in. My colleague train as intern student inside during practical.

Accenture give salary for intern students among the highest wan for accounting. bt it depends i think big 4 can learn more and more globalised.
