    Pros

    Managers are usually flexible around vacation and any time you need off.
    If you work 40 hours a week, you don't need to take vacation if you take a Friday off.
    Compensation is decent, but might be slightly lower than their competitors.

    Cons

    Resource managers don't give you an option for roles, if you are available, you go to whatever project needs to be filled, regardless of skill set, location preference, etc. You get no say in the matter.
    Only 15 days of PTO until you hit manager, then it jumps up to 25.
    Since EY is primarily an audit firm, you and your family aren't allowed to own any stock that EY audits, regardless if you are on the account or not.
    Work/life balance is almost non-existent. Many senior managers and partners in the firm travel so often, they don't see their kids grow up. I'm not sure why anybody decides to do that, but if you want to get high up in this company, you'll need to sacrifice your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Attrition is high because people are getting burned out, but partners only care about selling more work, so everybody is spread so thin.
