    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people you work with are fairly hardworking and intelligent. You will be worked hard, so you will gain a ton of experience in a short amount of time. Promotion path in audit and tax is fast and common. New office allows for greater work flexibility. Employees stay for the great people and culture.

    Cons

    Pay is less than industry, and people are not rewarded for hard work, as it is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on people more, especially around compensation. It will help with retention.

    Pros

    Good work culture. EY has summer hours in the summer and you can wear jeans in the office everyday as long as you dont have to go to the client

    Pay is below other firms. The top management should focus more and pay higher salaries to attract and retain top talent.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at EY full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    EY looks great on a resume but not much else. Some opportunity to meet genuine people but mostly full of people willing to manipulate you for their benefit

    Cons

    Poor pay, play the politics game. Often stuck between people trying to throw eachother under the bus. Some higher management is completely disrespectful and will not so much as talk to you and will ignore you. This position is being an assistant to assistants and doing the job noone else wants to do.
