    to be honest had a really great experience and would highly recommended looking for employment, have not experienced it so far but many say it can be a lot of work sometimes for not a lot of work

    Advice to Management

    keep moving in the right direction, management team is trying to adjust to the future and it seems as if they are doing a good job adapting to new opportunities as they come available through regulation

    Pros

    - Fast paced - excellent opportunity to delve into a vast amount of clients in a short period of time. - clear career progression line

    Cons

    - below average pay - bad work-life balance - While there are many talented people, arrogance seems to prevail at higher levels, consequently a lot of open minded, talented people leave...

    Advice to Management

    Design a propper retention program, looking for potentail. Get rid of the yearly review system under its present form. And design something that reconises talent and potential instead of just worked hours and submissiveness to superiors.

    Pros

    1) Learning curve on technical topics 2) Auditors at Paris office are young, resulting in a very good team spirit 3) Team management as soon as the 2nd year as an auditor: you will manage people and improve on technical topics more and sooner than everywhere else

    Cons

    1) Salary is very low. EY pays less than competitors, base salaries remain low even after 3-4 years, leading to many departures in industry or competitors (other Big4 firms). Variable pay is basically non-existent 2) Rhythm in audit has become intense for a few years, with several missions led by different managers at the same time. This leads to impossible deadlines and a lack of understanding from management. 3) Relationship with client: no time to deliver a deep expertise and quality audit, we just deal with the most urgent matters. This impacts the quality of our work and relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Given the rythm and responsibilities given veru quickly, compensation clearly needs to be improved.

    Pros

    Great learning environment the exposure to some of the biggest and best companies is really second to none. The large multinational company gives a lot of flexibility if a person were to want to work anywhere in the United States or the rest of the world.

    Cons

    Very long hours during busy season, little work life balance. Depending on the client you are put on it could be great or it could be miserable. High turnover results in staffing issues.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees on par with the industry, this would lead to lower turnover rates and better employee morale.
