    Pros

    I like the corporate culture as well as the reward for innovation and creativity. People are extraordinary and the professional atmosphere and desire to succeed is obvious. The benefits are outstanding.

    Cons

    Advisory is a growing practice and finding a client engagement can be difficult. Strong desire to be in the home office for the practice but willing to work with you to meet personal desires.

    Pros

    Have plenty of options and locations if you would like to switch to other fields in your career.

    Cons

    Work-life balance will be challenging and don't even think about 8:00-5:00 working hours. You would be definitely having your pizza at the office after 5:00 and work until 10:00 at the busy season.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Exposure to different industries and business models, high quality training, strong resume builder, work with smart people who know what they're doing.

    Cons

    If you're interested in learning about growing a business, improving processes, or feeling like you have a tangible impact on a day-to-day basis, EY isn't the best place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing exactly what they feel they should be doing - protecting and sustaining a long term annuity based business with lots of regulatory risks. If that's the type of industry you wan to work in, EY is a great place.
