Pros

1. good office building and work environment
2. relatively fair promotion opportunities in serivce lines
3. colleague relationship is not very complex

Cons

1. no internal transfer for employees in TAX-Human Capital
2. heavy workload
3. not easy to apply annual leave and sick leave in some departments

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HC needs the internal transfer too!!!!!!!!!
Be more kind to the employees!!!!!
EY should provide more benefits, such as bonus, instead of just 13th salary!!!!
The base salary have not been increased for many years!!!! It is time to do now!!!!!!

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant

    I have been working at EY

    Pros

    -Pay is not bad (after some re-alignment fr 2 years of very low raises)
    -Training/Certification support
    -Brand recognition/prestige
    -It's a good job if you just got out of school

    Cons

    -Counselor System/Management : this system, in my experience seems more of a political tool to micromanage employees and really put a bad taste in my mouth. Also, knowledge-sharing/coaching is almost non-existent on your projects. Those at the top have a distorted view of what goes on or the amount of work that staff/seniors put in to make them rich.

    -Politics: Finding meaningful work is almost impossible and a political game. The work they give you is mundane and requires virtually no thought process. It's a shame - they bring in some top talent and promise them the world and have them doing mindless tasks. And it's an endless cycle -if you do a good job at the mindless tasks then....drumroll... they give you more of the same mindless work!

    -Inconsistent Evaluation: This goes along with the politics of who gets staffed on what etc. People that get on the more mundane tasks get evaluations that are mediocre at best and those staffed on the more compelling work / have the opportunity to show their skill-set get rewarded. It's a shame but they definitely hold back a ton of smart people and have them chasing something that won't really turn into anything. When you look at your resume you'll realize that you really didn't contribute much. You'll just have that EY brand name to take with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff people fairly. Don't have the same people doing mundane work, transfer people in and out. Give fair evaluations and all the opportunity to succeed at what they enjoy. Learn how to manage projects better and allow people to be challenged and compelled to succeed. Show appreciation for hard work.
