    I worked at EY full-time

    Pros

    Some great people, had a great advisor!

    Cons

    Work is not worthwhile, too much office politics. So much gossip it was just plain out hostile. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your hires... Stop treating everyone in a lesser position as if they were beneath you. Playing favourites doesn't do you any favours either.

    Pros

    Very professional staff, well known brand and respected on the market, good for training, good network and more!

    Cons

    No transparency on salary brackets... seems very wide for the same position and number of years of experiance.. Can't provide a clear justification for every staff's compensation package.. sounds odd..

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent on staff salary brackets and provide everyone the opportunity... Stop promoting unqualified and non-performing staff.. termination policy for non-performing staff in the Middle East may need to have more teeth.. figures don't lie... but culture is blind..

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good Place to practice skills, share and gain knowledge. There is a enriched history of good work done which can be leveraged upon.
    A good place to gain cross functional experience and multi -industry exposure.
    Good place to start your career and gain knowledge

    Cons

    Office Culture and Politics can get a bit weary after sometime.
    Absence of strong leadership and knowledgebase at top management can at times hurt project management and client delivery.
    Inappropriate senior management and project managers cause untimely project delay and project team dissatisfaction, the middle level (senior consultant/AM) are always hard presses for delivery.
    Unfair growth prospect, and autrocratic management.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen to employees and select the executive level carefully. The main reason for all project delay is project management level failure.
