    Pros

    EY generates a strong brand within financial services that can be leveraged for other, better pursuits. Also the firm does provide good benefits (at the Manager+ levels)

    Cons

    Working at EY was pretty much a waste of time. To be clear, I worked in the Capital Advisory group at EY (broker/dealer). In sum, the Partners within the Practice basically could not sell work, many of which focused more on their golf skills on the course than teeing up deals to sell for the Associates. Also, the associates mix in technical skill sets varied, indicating that EY does not rigorously weed out bad talent. The biggest problem with the firm is senior management, where the competent/incompetent Partners stand at a ratio of 10/90. The firm, at least my group, further was very non-collegial and there was a lot of backstabbing/throwing colleagues under the bus just to impress the Partners; far more brown nosing than true competence. Glad I left!

    Advice to Management

    Fire Partners who do not bring in deals/generate revenue for the firm, simple as that. You are wasting time subsidizing their salaries and total comp with the real Partners who can sell. Implement a more collaborative working environment by bringing in more outside talent than jus home growing most of your partners.

    Pros

    Hands on experience, very good connections, great place to start your career, will lead to other, more lucrative opportunities in the future

    Cons

    Long hours, lack of work life balance, senior managers and managers are only out for themselves, you will get thrown under the bus if a project goes wrong, a lot of behind the scene dealing

    Advice to Management

    Take employee concerns into consideration, just because someone is effective doesn't mean you can simply work them more because others can't carry their weight
