IT IS APPARENTLY TRUE THAT YOU MAY FACE PROBLEM IN YOUR FINALS...BUT THERE ARE STUDENTS WHO ARE IN BIG FOUR..SO IT ALL DEPENDS ON TIME MANAGEMENT...AND SACRIFICING SOME UNPRODUCTIVE WORK WHICH YOU ENJOY IN UR LEASURE PERIOD..

I WOULD SUGGEST U TO JOIN A MEDIUM FIRM...INSTEAD OF BIG 4....COS I HAVE HEARD THAT THEY PUT AN ARTICLE IN A PARTICULAR AREA...

UR KNOWLEDGE MAY GET LIMITED TO THOSE AREAS ONLY...

BOTTOM LINE WILL BE UR OWN DECISION...

ALL THE BEST

As far as the big 4 firms are concerned u wil be placed and u wil be assigned only to a particular dept for all the 3 yrs of articleship period. Whereas medium firm u can gain knowledge in all the areas and u can directly interact with clients and partners.

This is the first and foremost suggestion which is given by many of the students and my friends too..

  • Work is fantastic. You will become expert in your interested area(s) within few months.
  • Workload is heavy but only initial months. Once you get the grip you will enjoy.
  • You are paid in package (taking my example, E&Y)
  • You are NOT confined to one particular area. It is false. Your CA at appropriate time shall allow you to change.
  • YOUR LIFE IS SET :)

Hi sowbarnika,  

Doing articleship in Big 4 does not affect your final performance in any manner if

1. You manage your time properly.

2. Be a smart worker to finish work faster.

3. Dont be over enthusiastic for people may exploit you.

4. last but not the least, plan your studies well before.

I did my articleship in Big 4. It is not true that you will be confined to one area only. It depends on the place where you are. But yes, you have to stretch your working hours a bit. But the exposure level will be good.

I know many  Big 4 friends who have cleared final in one attempt with the stipulated leave period also.

At last, the ball is in your court my dear. 

you will have to decide based on all the opinions given.

ALL THE BEST!!!:)
