    Great experience and opportunity

    Current Employee - Tax Senior
    Current Employee - Tax Senior

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    I have had plenty of opportunities to pursue the type of work I'm intersted in, with the client engagements that I'm interested in. I work with great teams and appreciate the coaching and support.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't bad, but not great when you take into account the number of busy season hours worked. Communication between partners and staff can be minimal to seemingly nonexistant at times, though this has been acknowledged and progress has been made towards it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be more generous with performance based bonuses. More partner to staff dialouge, as well.

    Pros

    The pros include gaining experience in a variety of industries, exposure to senior management of client companies, project management and finance skills

    Cons

    Challenges include lack of collaboration, high turnover, long work hours with short notices resulting in difficult life balance. Leadership style and review process promote cliques rather than building skills across employee base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Suggest a focus on improving turnover rates by building a better leadership and compensation style
