    I have been working at EY

    Pros

    Great opportunities and a variety of different fields of expertise, people first culture (Sometimes), seems like most managers grasp this concept, flexibility.

    Cons

    Sometimes expectations too high and unreasonable. Pay is less than peers, while working more, although positioning yourself for more income in future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Global policies seem to push out people first philosophies, although sometimes local management seems to forget the importance. Would suggest more of a focus on this locally. More clear and direct feedback would also be helpful.

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Staff in Baltimore, MD
    Former Employee - Staff in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at EY

    Pros

    - Looks good on your resume, and that's about it
    - Beginning pay is fair, even though less than ideal
    - Stay at good hotels when traveling, even though you're always at the office

    Cons

    - Management has absolutely no respect whatsoever for employees
    - Management treat employees who are in their thirties and forties like 5-year old children
    - You may have to do really stupid tasks like get your boss's lunch or throw away your boss's trash just because he thinks he's above it, and even though you have Master's degrees and years of experience
    - Management often falsely accuse staff and employees of things that they did not do
    - The promotion goes to the coworker who goes out for 2-hour or 3-hour lunches, and you may not get one even though you work like a dog and skip meals to satisfy your boss
    - Most supervisors are micromanagers and do not let you work peacefully after administering your work
    - Managers are often dishonest in terms of chargeability, and will screw clients by charging them even though the employees are only "pretending" to do work or "looking busy," and this is especially done by senior/managers and above, only Staff actually do work at this firm, without getting any credit for it
    - A whole novel can be written about bad points of working at this seemingly great firm, don't come here just because of the name because it's equivalent to misjudging a book by its cover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Change your condescending attitudes toward your employees, if you treat adults like 5-year old children, they will LEAVE
    - Even though you're a Big 4 firm, mistreatment of employees will eventually catch up with you if it has not already done so in this economy
    - Ever heard of Honesty?? Try that out some time.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
