    Pros

    Ernst & Young provides its employees with a diversified experience catering to many versatile industries. E&Y takes seriously the career progression of its employees by providing them with on the job training and global work opportunities at its offices located in more than 140 countries.

    Cons

    While working at the trainee level in Advisory service line, it is very hard to maintain a balance between work and studies as trainees are required to do late sitting very often. This imbalance results in the poor passing rates of trainees in professional examinations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership at Ernst & Young should seriously undertake efforts to bring the compensation rates provided to the trainees recruited in South East Asia region to the regional market level.

    Might be fine for client facing, but not good for back office

    Pros

    Salaries are very good, very generous vacation package. Still offers a pension program to all full time employees. Theoretically offers flexible work arrangements, although it is difficult to have non-working time respected.

    Cons

    re-orgs every 1-2 years. Far too many lay-offs, leaving already over burdened workers with no hope for a respite. Time off is not respected, you are still expected to attend conference calls and respond to e-mails even during vacation. You must attend conference calls in the middle of the night to accommodate India, where all IT Services jobs are being sent, even though the agreement was off-shore resources would work US hours. Management does not respect employees, "work life balance" is not taken seriously, communications have improved but still have a long way to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people who work in the back office are the ones that enable the client facing employees to do their jobs - treat IT services workers with a bit more respect. Outsourcing is clearly not working, reconsider the model to the original "co-sourcing" and "staff augmentation" it was intended to be. This used to be a true "people first" company, consider reverting to some of the policies that were in place 3 or more years ago when morale and loyalty were much higher than they are now.
