    The firm was a good place to start but gradually shifted to the big-four model of overworking/underpaying nonprincipals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should you continue to show a lack of respect as well as underpay your good people, employee morale and retention will continue to dwindle. Go back to the 2007 & 2008 mentality rather than trying to operate like a big four firm. That model works for them, but they also pay their people for working long hours. It always appeared that employee satisfaction due to different management at E&Y and PWC were much better despite an increase in hours. I can now personally attest to that now that I am at E&Y.
