    I worked at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This review actually predates the spinoff of its consulting business into CAP Gemini, so a lot has changed. Unfortunately, Glassdoor doesn't have a "pre-2009" option. * Good knowledge management support, the firm really worked at this * Open to experimentation and staying with new trends, in pockets * Unusual efforts to marry industry knowledge with the accounting & audit segment

    Cons

    * The usual in the industry re: little work/life balance, large turnover. * Inconsistent management. It amazed me that a senior manager could consistently blow projects, and have terrible relationships with staff, without consequences. This phenomenon seems to be prevalent in the consulting industry, and it would be really interesting to see some studies as to why. * With some institutional (KM, some IT) and personal exceptions, support functions often demonstrated poor performance.

    Advice to Management

    This is industry-wide, not firm-specific. I suspect you could get a Pareto payoff by thinking hard about how to identify toxic managers/ principals quickly, and remove them before damage is done to staff or client relationships. The people who are a nightmare to staff are going to cause problems with clients, one way or the other. Lose them fast. On the back end, a bit of attention could really pay off. This isn't revenue-producing, so professional service firms don't assign their good managers to it, but poor performance sub-optimizes your highly-paid talent. Why not make a point of hiring some professional career track managers from outside? Pick those with a record of making a difference and being near the cutting edge, and give them the support necessary to make these functions good.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good flexible working policies, interesting opportunities, good career management and development opportunities, collegiate working environment.

    Cons

    Unclear reward and recognition, huge salary ranges with no clarity around differentiators. Inconsistent levels of senior managers and directors, from inspiring role models to 'how on earth are they still here?' people.

    Advice to Management

    Some clarity around salary bands. The same rigour applied to senior level promotions and performance management as junior staff.
