I have been working at EY

Pros

Great experience, good for resume, work with great companies, easy to get promoted within the company. great perks and benefits.

Cons

I worked extreme hours for most of the year. I was on an initial public offering team, and worked 100 weeks consistenly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spread the work around a little more. Even though I was one of the highest ranked people in my class, I didn't need to work 80+ hours a week when the average was around 50.

    I have been working at EY

    Pros

    Caliber of peers is second to none. Great training program that has recently been moved to onsite vs previously offsite for cost savings, but still strong collegial environment. Fantastic networking opportunities with peers as well as industry clients

    Cons

    Leadership decisions are swift and not transparent. Senior partners seem out of touch; employees often feel they lack support from management. Hours are grinding and wear you down. Work-life balance is more of an HR mantra -- owing partly to the lack of senior level backing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation costs are your biggest expense, but bump salaries (or even the frequency of merit awards) just a bit -- a little goes a long way. Value the employees not just through your messaging but through actions and initiatives

    I worked at EY

    Pros

    Good internal environment. Small team where there is good interaction among partners and staff.

    Cons

    Weak leadership & methodologies.
    There are huge divergences among the way some partners see their business, this impacts on their relationship and how they manage the business. Reflects negatively on the performance and productivity of the team...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure they share tha same values and ideas
