    Current Employee - Audit Senior in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at EY full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with the best talent.
    Challenging work environment.
    The exposure you get early on is incomparable
    The ability to move up along side your peers allows you strong growth as a young professional.
    working with younger people who can relate to you is crucial

    Cons

    hours can be rough
    I don't think the pay is near competitive enough in the first 1-5 years of your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the millennials
    teach us how we can be successful at the firm even if it may look different than how senior management achieved success.
