    They are prestigious accountancy firms.

    If you want to consider 'corporate prestige,' then banking, law and management consulting are all more 'prestigious' and competitive than accountancy.

    However it's all *******s, because in a survey of the general public firefighter came top (understandably), and either way you can't eat prestige. The vast majority of people don't care, and you're better off doing something you'll enjoy (based on whatever metrics you care about).
    I know mate, I was suggesting that the guy who said they weren't as an idiot who clearly hasn't got a clue

    And my comment explains why someone might think they are not prestigious. Because outside of accounting they aren't necessarily considered to be.

    As a heads up, pretty sure Lloyds Banking Group accept applications from people with a 2.2.
