    Flexibility, leadership, work life balance
    tons of opportunities

    to many internal groups and seems lost if u are not familiar with them

    consolidate groups and keep the work in US while cutting cost. Out sourcing is not the best solution

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at EY are the caliber of people you work with, the training and the experience you receive early on.

    Cons

    The work can be very monotonous at times; it is sometimes hard to get on the clients you want to serve on; the politics can be tiring at times.

    Former Employee - Human Resources and Talent in New York, NY

    I worked at EY full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of smart people, top notch technology, excellent training and development opportunities. There is a good "family" culture in certain business units and practices. Much of the senior leadership has been around for a while and can be excellent mentors.

    Cons

    Travel can be intense at times, hours can be significant and expectations can be overwhelming for some if not up for the challenge...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on retaining and developing young talent!
