    Current Employee - Senior Data Analyst in Cleveland, OH

    I have been working at EY full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - good experience for entry-level graduates
    - looks great on resume, impressive name

    Cons

    - poor compensation for workload
     - unrealistic and unachievable expectations
     - very poor feedback on performance
     - total lack of training ad education for new technologies and concepts while the expected skill is at the expert level
     - complete lack of understanding for personal issues
     - overly aggressive and jaded senior managers, executives and partners
     - too much emphasis on rank (your insight and even general work performance will be ignored below or even at the manager level)
     - employees treated like assets or generic resources
     - micromanagement, "setting up to fail" and management by fear are common practices
     - complete lack of respect for staff by senior management and executives
     - a cut-throat and back-stabbing nature of work environment is encouraged and rewarded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not underestimate your staff. They carry your workload and represent your own ability to effectively manage a group of employees. Insults and back-handed comments will only make them resent you and have no ambition to do well. Your poor attitude reflects and extends to your subordinates.
