Hey guys, I was hoping you could help me make a decision on which offer to take.

At the moment, the only offer letter I have received is from PwC for 50-52k. The remaining offers were communicated to me over the phone after my recent office visit but no salary details until next week. 

I've compiled a much more comprehensive decision matrix in excel with 16 categories ranked 1-5. 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. The current ranking order : 

  • 1) EY – Score 56
  • 2) PwC – Score 54
  • 3) KPMG – Score 53
  • 4) Deloitte – Score 50
  • 5) F50 – Score 49 

As you can see they are all pretty close. So I was hoping the GC experts would be kind enough to provide their insights and inputs.
