    Pros

    401k package, maternity leave, 2 holiday days during specific weekends (Monday and Friday off), get to work on multiple projects and clients

    Cons

    Hard to shape your own career path, they tend to place you on projects where they need filling. In the FSO industry, you are always traveling. Not mindful of family at home. Very low pay especially coming into EY from day one.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more remote work for those on extensive travel. The idea of "flexible" work is not that easy. Raise the pay.

    Pros

    Not too many pros for people in core services. Except for flexibility of working from home, there is nothing much EY offers.

    Cons

    EY is not people oriented. They measure mgmt and non mgmt in different scale. Most of the leadership doesn't follow the values that they preach. The technology is behind times. Lot of non technical leaders leading technical portfolios. Lot of time and energy wasted providing metrics to leadership when no one takes any action item on my them. Communication from leadership is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your people.

    Pros

    Defined career path with lots of intelligent people who can be useful resources. Ability to learn and people are willing to help if you show a desire to learn. Flexibility during certain parts of the year. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours working on actual work to them have to handle all of the administrative work as well. There is some red tape related to taking time off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be disingenuous
