    I worked at EY full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employees are always treated with respect and the open door policy actually exists whereby anyone can approach the top management directly without any bureaucratic hurdles.

    Cons

    The packages are not as attractive as in the competing firms and promotions or rotations abroad are not always based on merit as immediate superiors have too much say in deciding both.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Performance appraisal should be based purely on merit and favoritism by middle level managers should be eliminated. Also, pay packages should be revised to be at par with other companies.

    I worked at EY full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on a large variety of clients. Excellent company reputation. Very good benefits in terms of FTO, S-T Disability, flexible work arrangements. Meet and work with a lot of diverse people. At a young age you get significant exposure to senior levels of management within small, mid and large sized companies. Great research tools and opportunities to expand technical expertise and management skills.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime expected. Not easy to move upwards if you change locations within the firm. If you're in a large office your exposure to clients/industries is limited.
