Current Employee - Advisory Manager in London, England (UK)
Current Employee - Advisory Manager in London, England (UK)

I have been working at EY

Pros

High growth and ambitious (for an accountancy firm)
You work on engagements that work for your development needs and your personal life
Decent working hours
60% of the people are highly capable and decent people
We put customers first
Very supportive of personal issues
Great range of engagements to work on

Cons

As a people focused organisation, we are therefore really bad at all our internal processes from admin through to promotion
Consequently more about who you know than what you know
Lack of transparency and integrity of processes
Putting customers first means putting staff last
20% of the people are out of their depth, talk jargon to cover up, cause havoc and seem to get away with it??
Directors trying to get to Partner are a nightmare
Very Machiavellian and not enough openess and collaboration
We don't compete on price - whilst it's commercially the right thing to do, feels like we're going into pitches with an automatic disadvantage

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve openness and transparency
Up the ante on ridding the organisation of jargon
Encourage people to be themselves more and collaborate
Encourage more leadership and communication down the line

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each individual country's office policy should be tailored to their country's requirement. There should not be any "one size fits all" policy especially with regards to promotion
