    I worked at EY as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent intern program, great pay

    Cons

    Work is somewhat boring and did not learn as much as I had expected. The company sells risk advisory as consulting when it really is just internal audit.

    Advice to Management

    Let interns be more transparent with how the genuinely enjoyed their work rather than punishing them for not enjoying it.

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

    Pros

    Exposure to many sorts/sizes of companies. Client interaction (amount depending on role/level).

    Cons

    Time tracking is a huge difficulty and source of stress, and forgetting to track time 3 times in a year (even if you're out of office or on vacation) leads to capped full-year reviews. Teams vary widely. Hard to take vacation due to long hours and team constraints.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring more people would reduce workload on current employees.

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

    Pros

    Good culture, strong leadership, fantastic network, great learning opportunities

    Cons

    Way too much emphasis on meeting hours budgets, pressure from PCAOB has caused the auditing profession to harp on ICFR minutia (not EY's fault but is a con of the job), performance ratings subject to disparities depending on reviewers, feedback is not timely, can get lost in the fray without a proper mentor, hours are long (but who didn't know that?)

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some of the smaller audits that burn a lot of time, but fees are low and don't allow you to charge much time without wrecking the budget.
