    I worked at EY full-time

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, and training were all excellent. The particular people I worked with were amazing -- demonstrating a very team-oriented environment with lots of energy and enthusiasm. Prestigious, global company that utilizes technology very well.

    Cons

    Extremely competitive cultural organization with many cliques & silos. Conflicting visions, instructions, and directions from multiple managers. No idea how to manage and cultivate people. Fear was a commonplace management tactic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yes, business is business. However, people do the business. Find the courage for a healthier balance.

    I worked at EY full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    gaining lots of technical knowledge
    meeting great people
    only 2 years to get a senior and advanced ppl can make a manager in 4 years
    advancing in your communication and computer skills, getting more efficient
    great office and out-of-office events
    lots of nicest people to hang around in the office :)

    Cons

    1)aggressive market share gaining strategy resulting in work overload and understaffing.
    2)avaricious and discouraging leadership's ranking system: you might get all 4s and 5s from your teams, but still get an overall 3 (average) ranking from the leadership, inside politics matter (working harder than majority isn't enough for the leadership, well, which is true in any other company anyway probably)
    3) lots of pressure from schedulers
    4) constant new software tools and apps implementation requires you to learn this new softwares and this sometimes also creates a slowdown of your workflow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you're planning to join as a manager or sr. manager, etc, be prepared to be pushy for your people, otherwise it's hard to retain good ppl in your team, since ppl quit all the time cause of ridiculous overload.
    Also, you'll have to work hard to propose to new clients
