    I have been working at EY (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Any Big 4 firm is a great place to start your career. You will learn a lot and make a tremendous amount of connections.

    Cons

    The work life balance is terrible and often the commute will make it worse. The fast paced environment can be very stressful. The pay is not that great for the amount of work you put in

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

    Pros

    - High impact engagements with clients
    - Partnership model (if you can make it)
    - Very competitive salary and benefits
    - Great firm culture

    Cons

    - Difficult to achieve reasonable work/life balance
    - 80-100% travel requirements hard on family
    - Political environment - need to be connected with the right Partners to be successful
    - Unclear Technology Consulting strategy
    - Difficult to be successful as a direct admit Senior Manager

    Advice to Management

    Make more of an effort to ensure the success of direct admit Senior Managers. Also, need to resolve the Sector/Competency relationship model as it sometimes feel like the firm does not collaborate well between Competencies and Sectors and the Senior Managers can be stuck in the middle of that.

    Overall, great place to start your career and potentially to continue it if you're willing to make the sacrifices required to stay in the firm and continue to move up. It's definitely not for everyone and if having dinner with your kids and being even remotely available to your family during the week is important to you, you're better off in industry or in one of the more local consultancies (Point B, Slalom, North Highland, etc.).

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at EY (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible - you can arrange your work hours to make sure you have 9 hours a day worth of work to do.

    Cons

    Travels a lot between clients - maybe travel locally, nationally, or internationally. Rarely can stay on the same client for more than 24 consecutive months.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage two way communicate and two way feedback to not only develop people's technical and learning skills, but also leadership and coaching skills.

    Pros

    Good place to start your career. Hours and schedule are usually pretty flexible during non-busy season. Reputable brand name.

    Cons

    If you stay for too long and don't want to do auditing, you can get stuck there. Pay is similar to the other big 4 (industry salaries are low in general at lower levels).

    None
