Pros

There are many reasons to work for Ernst and Young Global. Firstly, it is a good brand name. Secondly, it provides a very good training ground for the future finance professionals. Thirdly, they have a very good health care benefits. Fourthly, of late they are very much encouraging women, minority and diversity. Fifthly, the partners and managers are very open and approachable and last but not the least, the overall environment is very casual and homely.

Cons

Flip sides are firstly the salary is not at par with the industry or other big four, secondly, the work hours can be very long and thirdly, sometimes politics comes into the play in deciding the promitions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please pay the overtime to the staffs and reduce the minimum utilization target especially when the firm is not paying a lot in terms of salary

    Pros

    Good place to launch a career, before it becomes highly politicized and loses it's meritocracy.

    Cons

    No longer a meritocracy the higher up you go - it becomes solely who you work for and their position within the organization. Partners are fiercely protective of their own fiefdoms and teamwork is an illusion. They will promote their own 'experts' based on their need for utilization and keeping fees in their name rather than bring in the people that actually understand the subject matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It can be inconsistent between business units, but the FSO is basically dysfunctional in my opinion.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Company is well respected in the community and has an excellent reputation. It's a good company to have on a resume. They have a good client base and many of the people who work at Ernst and Young move on to work at jobs in the corporate sector, taking jobs at their client sites. This company is an excellent stepping stone to move through the corporate world. They have been around for almost 100 years and have been able to keep themselves and their reputation clean. They hire people who fit their mold and align with the company policy. They are a good company to work for if you are looking to make a career in audit, tax, or move on to the private sector.

    Cons

    Feedback isn't constructive. A class system attitude. One department doesn't seem to know what the other department is doing. If communication between segments was more accepted work would be done more efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate your tasks more clearly, discuss the project so all expectations are met.
