    Pros

    Great place to work if you want to get a solid base of accounting or consulting knowledge... also making a lot of working relationships....

    Cons

    EY Mexico doesnt pay the staff or seniors that well, but after a couple of years if your really have what it takes and you like the consulting life, you have a good chance of building your carrer there.

    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
