Pros

Brand name world wide well known (not great in all countries though)

Cons

1. Not enough intelligence around. Don't know where they should be headed in terms of strategy. Most of the work won is of contracting nature rather than use of good work and win win strategy for selling.
2. Unethical recruiting practices by giving incorrect details and assurances during interviews, work scenario does not match with the assurances provided during interview.
3. Partners are not smart enough and do not have the ability to sell well. They get all their work done by others and portray that they are deeply involved.
4. Significant favoritism attitude shown. Performance of good people does not matter, what matters is how close you are to the people making decisions.
5. Perceptions matter more than good work.
6. Employees bullied through the HR route by telling them they are not performing well and in some cases unethically asked to leave.
7. Undue pressure on employees who are performing. No pressure created for favorites who are sitting on the bench for a long time and not delivering to the level required.
8. Very easy to get promoted and be nominated for monthly awards - whether or not you deserve it, no one cares.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Recruitment strategy needs to be given a hard look
2. Panel interviews need to be done and placement as per skills required
3. Deliver correct and true information during interviews and stop wasting careers of smart people who you just want to put at clients place for menial contracted jobs. Those jobs can be done by graduates.
4. Live by the values of the firm - it's all a myth at the moment.
5. Let smart people grow and give direction to the business, those who understand the industry very well, rather than going ahead with your stupid strategies of winning contracting work alone.
6. Client's are won by content, not by only socialising with them. Wins which are dependent on socialising do not go a long way in making a name for the firm in the market.
7. Look around - ask people outside of the firm what they think about your work. Don't tell them you represent EY. You will truly understand what people think about you.
