    Pros

    I'd recommend EY as a great place to work. People are the heart of the organisation. It's purpose lead, inclusive, diverse and consists of like minded professionals who team together. You feel you can bring your whole self to work and are encouraged to do so. You have the ownership to build your own career and have the support to do this as well as balancing this with your day to day life.

    Cons

    I can't think of any

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in our people and living our values, it's what makes us unique and EY such a great place to work

    - Changes in the L&D structure of teams made the role quite narrow

    Advice to Management

    If you are truly focused on people, then your senior leaders within business support should also value those principles
