    Hi everyone,
    I am a continental european student (student in a MSC in Accountancy&Finance holding a BA in Finance) who has landed an offer in the finance division of an IB in the City. Actually, I am not 100% sure about what to do in my future, considering I am really interested in finance but, at the same time, I appreciate also tasks related to accounting and reporting. To be frank, I have not yet a specific idea about my future, but I am really really grateful to this IB to give me this great chance and I'll use it to clear my mind (as an internship is supposed to do)!

    Obviously in my country things work pretty differently than in UK and for this reason I've looked for information on internet on different websites, forums and communities. My questions is: what are pros and cons in working directly in a IB as finance analyst? And what are pros and cons to work in a Big4? Which are salary (also long term) prospects for both path? Is it possible for u a transition from IB finance division to a Big4 wheter I'd change minds?

    Thank you very much to all and sorry for my english, I need to improve it!!

    Bye
