“BIG 4’S – Do they create a Better CA?  A Big QUESTION”.

Friends After passing the group 1 of IPCC, the first question that comes in the mind of students is “what to do and which firm to choose” and in a hurry many of us take a wrong decision and we regret the whole of your life.

This is a very important decision which can make or Ruin our life. So as a part of “ERNST & YOUNG”, I Think I can be a great guide to all of you.

So lets go for it my friends –

First of all for better understanding of students following are counted in the BIG 4’S –

PWC ( Price Water House Coper Limited ), EY ( ERNST YOUNG ), KPMG and Delloitte.

These are very Reputed firms in terms of CA’S. I Know its really difficult to get selected in these firms because of their strict selection procedures. But once you get selected, your life will change my friend. Being a pary of EY for last 7 months, I have undergone a lots and lots of changes. I see a new sanyam now. I Can talk to clients in a very pleasant manner and my English has also improved a lot.

So there are many things which I want to share with all of you. So lets start the discussion –

Advantages of being in BIG 4’S –

1. Immense knowledge –

By working with big 4’s you become specialized in the area you have chosen. They provide you the best of the knowledge they can. Personally speaking I have learned a lot in the area of Indirect Taxation which I share with all of you. So its better to be a part of Big 4’s ( ONE POINT ).

2. Big Clients –

Another vital aspect of BIG 4’S is that they provide an opportunity  to work on big clients. I will share with you all my personal experience. The clients I work on are BMW, SAMSUNG, RICOH, etc. When I visit these clients I see how life works. You get to know how professional works  and their behaviour is too awesome. Whenever I visit these places I used to learn something new as well as it is called “Relation building”. I Get to meet the senior manager of SAMSUNG, so by visiting their place, you make a new contact which can help you in the future.

3. Trainings –

BIG 4’S also provide various trainings on the part in which you are not technically strong. This is called “Becoming a bright Professional”. Like what I got from EY is following trainings –

(a) Communication skills
(b) PMDP
(c)  Performance councels and many more.

4.Professionalisom – 

positivity-and-professionalism3

 

The most vital part of being In BIG 4’S is you learn the each and every aspect of being a professional. While working with the professionals you learn a lot. 

For example – How to behave, sit, eat, speak and when to speak and when not too!
And also how to manage pressure can only be learn by working with BIG 4’S and Medium firms.

5. Monetary Terms –

I Know its not an important aspect in the learning stage, but when an intern gets the best he will provide the best to the firm. Thats the only reason the BIG 4’S pay the highest stipend.

6. After CA –

The best part of working with Big 4’s is that they recruit you as and when you become a CA and will pay you more in comparison to newly hired CA’s. 

So these were some important aspects which i wanted to bring in front of you all.
I think its much to make you all satisfied for trying in BIG 4’S. 

So never be afraid to try in BIG 4’S as it is said that ” Mehnat karne vaalo ko he manzil prapt hoti hai!
