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

    Pros

    Working with other young professionals and meeting a lot of people. Great experiences by working on lots of projects with different companies. Good perks in general and some flexibility. 18 days paid time off and unlimited sick days. Also nice having a pension. Promotions are generally quick if you are highly rated.

    Cons

    Compensation is low. Hours are brutal, especially during busy seasons (generally 70-80 hrs a week). Huge turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your high-rated staff/seniors better. Higher compensation helps, especially when EY generally has the lowest salaries out of all of the Big 4

    I worked at EY full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You learn an incredible amount in a small amount of time. They had programs in place to make sure you felt supported and were learning.

    Cons

    Long hours, diversity is something they are always working on, some down days. You can sometimes feel lost since its such a big company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep talking to people to get feedback. Continue to emphasis diversity in the workplace. Events outside of work are helpful in everyone getting to know eachother.

    I worked at EY full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience at a renowned company that opened the door for many future opportunities.

    Cons

    Nature of audit work was not what I wanted to pursue long-term, the busy season hours can be challenging yet manageable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Early-promote your 5's to make sure they stick around. One has to find some sort of balance between the bureaucracy that is a large company, and the meritocracy that encourages high-performers to stick around.
