    Big-4 Consulting Experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I worked at EY full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers and resources; learned some new client business and consulting tools. I enjoyed company-wide training events and networking.

    Cons

    Mismatched projects; absentee leadership - hiring process does not capture candidate strengths nor gives a good picture of what the work is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up on analytics and just focus on IT transformation consulting.

    Tons of experience acquired at the cost of having no life and being miserable all the time.

    Current Employee - Audit Senior in New Orleans, LA
    Current Employee - Audit Senior in New Orleans, LA

    I have been working at EY full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's all young people who for the most part are all very intelligent and motivated. You move up quickly and are always given as much responsibility as you can handle, and then a bit more.

    Cons

    Hours are horrendous, and if you are in a smaller to mid-size market where there are a lot of private clients then your busy season extends into May. Corporate bureaucracy mindset makes it impossible for even your partners to compensate you with anything extra for your efforts. Rating process caters to people with easier clients/managers. I could really go on all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know that you hired people who all went to business school. Translation: everything we've done up to this point in our life was for the purpose of making money and we don't really care about the free intangibles that you're so heavily focused on instead (e.g. sub-area recognition awards for the 0.1% of people who receive them, the coin system, etc.). We're adults. We yearn for adult things.
