Default Should I try for accenture diploma graduate?

Basically ORD-ing in 2 weeks with computer engineering diploma (3.1GPA) from SP.

I've been doing quite a bit of web development courses and personal projects to keep my skills sharp during NS but still not confident on whether I am job ready.

I had offer from NTU comp engineering but because of my ORD date I decided to take 1 year to work and was wondering if Accenture diploma-graduate program was something I should go for?

Other than the program, people kept telling me to find MNC as my first company and I'm getting overwhelmed on what type of company I should find as my first job and how I should go about finding it?

My criteria is that I am not really worried about pay difference, but more on guidance and whether I would get shunned for being a diploma-grad trying to work in an MNC Tech company.

Would love some advice. Thank you!

In ACN for 2.5 yearsÖShould I align myself to Tech or S&C?

S&C

Pros:
Exposure to different types of work (but so far havenít done any consulting type of work)
Could potentially be a faster route to CL7

Cons:
More costly to projects: Iíve heard that S&C people cost more to the project
Takes longer to get promoted. Generally it takes about 3-4 years to be promoted to CL7.
Cannot align to H&PS (thatís where most of the biggest clients are and they have the biggest budget for promotions also)

Tech

Pros:
Faster to get promoted.
More budget for promotion.
Better bonuses.


Cons:
Exit options might be limited to tech, not so much of Management Consulting.
If things go south, it might take longer for you to get promoted to AM>M.
Lower pay than consulting (?)

What do you guys recommend?

What role are you even hired in as for acn? Easy to align to tech but not easy to align to S&C. If youíre hired in as consulting development analyst or strategy analyst you automatically fall under S&C. But if youíre hired in as business and integration analyst you fall under Tech and not S&C. If you want to switch to S&C, you wonít hold the tech titles and itís not easy to switch. If youíre hired in as operations, or song or security you fall under their respective DTE/function. Iím assuming youíre under TAP given youíre in acn for 2.5 years? Its not end of 3 years you graduate from tap you choose either tech or S&C. You will go back to your DTE/function, again you can identify from your acn job title itself or easiest your contract (it states your job family). Itís easy to tell actually since TAP mostly consists of only business and integration analyst/senior analyst and consulting development analyst/snr analyst, the former is tech while the latter is S&C.

Your pros and cons are rather accurate, S&C is much more competitive than tech. Itís easier to find projects for tech as compared to strategy or consulting. Many times the consulting team in projects are really small, as little as 2 people or maximum 10.
At the end of the day, depends on your interest and abilities.

I was hired under tech but switched to consulting after 2nd year.

It takes more than 3-4 years to reach CL7, unless you are including your 2.5 years in.
Even so, 6-7 years from fresh grad is considered fast. Of course there are exceptions.
Do you consider yourself better than everyone at your level? Take that in mind.

Just to update on a few of your points, youíre right that consulting people cost more than tech to projects. This makes sense as well given how consulting offers are much more competitive and each recruitment only a handful consulting offers are given out. The roles they hold in projects are vastly different from tech too.

Your cons for consulting on being unable to align to H&PS is not true. Indeed H&PS have some of the biggest budget given the huge project scale. Every project requires consulting people, youíll see in H&PS projects they tend to join the change management team. Change management is one out of five sub offerings for consulting under S&C.

You have also mentioned that youíve not gotten the chance to do much consulting projects. It seems that youíre not a consulting analyst or senior analyst? Correct me if Iím wrong. But if youíre a consulting analyst or senior analyst you are under consulting in S&C, youíll definitely be profiled to consulting roles and youíll hold consulting roles in projects unless thereís no openings or you wanna do tech roles. Consulting projects or consulting roles are only open to consulting analysts or strategy analysts and not tech, thatís the reason why you may have the chance to experience it.

Your cons for tech are true, if youíre looking to go into management consulting, you should be doing consulting work and holding consulting role. Itís the most straightforward.

Easiest is youíre offered a consulting role when you applied which means youíre hired to do consulting in acn. If not, youíll have to do an internal switch which is not any easier youíll need connections or someone at S&C thatís willing to bring you over. Many times if youíre not originally offered a consulting role when you apply, they see that you are not suited for S&C. But now tech is paying quite well too, so if youíre not looking to pursue mgmt consulting non the long term or move on to MBB or strategy house, then you can do tech, it also seems that youíre under tech with the business and integration role.

Youíre clearly not from ACN from the words and terms you use. ACN doesnít fire ďa bunchĒ of people, we donít use department too. Are you saying nus ntu grads donít overpromise and under delivery too? Lol what generation are you even living in.

I see, what made you switch to consulting though? Were you interested in it? I assume after the switch youíve been holding consulting roles in projects? To come across core consulting projects quite rare, cos acn sells many projects related to tech or implementation (thatís what acn is known for also). So on such tech or implementation projects, consulting guys usually take on the change role or maybe functional BA
