I have been working at EY as a contractor

Pros

Laid back atmosphere. Flexible hours. Friendly environment.

Cons

Hours are flexible, but you do not get paid when you are not here. No advancement opportunity. They hire you as a contractor and you typically stay a contractor. Very hard to get hired perm. Need to obtain your series 65 license, but do not get a raise when you do (most of the people they hire don't pass, they should cherish the ones that do). Benefits are awful for the contractors. Practically pay full price for health insurance. No matching on 401k. No vacation pay. No holiday pay. No sick pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the employees that pass the series 65 and give it their all at work, make them perm faster. Pay more to the people who do well and give them advancement opportunities. It will motivate them to stay rather than hiring a new class every 6 months.

    I have been working at EY full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary is decent, work schedule is sort of flexible, autonomy in work, trained a lot

    Cons

    productivity/focus is highly demanded - and if you can't keep up then you work late. overtime work is not a question - it will happen, frequently. being project based is difficult for personal planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    depending on who your manager is effects quality required at work. get more on the same page.

    I worked at EY full-time

    Pros

    good networking opportunities, decent pay, benefits are good, most of the people are decent to work with

    Cons

    Zero opportunity to grow if you start off in a support role. Support staff do not directly report to the people they support. Forget work-life balance..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate that your support team may have valuable ideas and a background that can help grow your business.
