    Current Employee - Advisory Senior in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at EY full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have had a very good experience so far with EY. I work on the Performance Improvement area of advisory. Consulting really is what you make of it, and I have had the chance to select and shape the engagements that I have participated in. For me this was a great opportunity to network and take on new challenges. The support structure has been great for me, and I feel like I can reach out to anyone for assistance on any given problem that I have. My counselors and counseling family leaders have been really helpful in getting acclimated to EY and the overall culture of teaming is great.

    Cons

    I didn't realize how how much this becomes a sales job until I got into it. If you are good at selling and delivering good work, you will excel in this line of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although delivering excellent work products is primary, EY management should help Staff, Seniors, and Managers to develop the sales skills necessary to excel in consulting.
