    Pros

    Really enjoy all of my coworkers. Great group of people who are bright and hard working.

    I worked at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Among the big 4, EY has a more welcoming culture for people from different backgrounds. Also, EY has good training programs in place and tries its best to develop their people.

    Cons

    EY is still part of the big 4 oligopoly and so there will be a lot of bureaucracy and politics.

    Try your best to avoid favoritism at all cost.

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

    Pros

    Create work culture and everyone at EY is extremely open and accessible. There is opportunity to gain knowledge in a wide range of sectors/areas in the business.

    Cons

    Limited mobility from one area in the company to another part. Upper level management is more afraid of losing you as a team member than developing your skills.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent in how to move around within divisions to gain the most experience possible to expand each employee's knowledge.

    Pros

    You really learn to be efficient and muli-task like a pro.

    Increase base salary and vacation days for managers and below

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

    Pros

    There are great people to work with and in general within the Big 4 they treat their people the best. The international network is great and you'll meet great people to work with. There are strong networks and you can carve out people to work with - excellent teaming - if you are with the right people.

    Cons

    There is a lot of bureaucracy and favoritism. They try to make it seem like a meritocracy but it is not. Also, things move at snail pace and pretty much lags behind industry. There are a lot of office politics so you need to be very aware of the written rules and unwritten rules.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate employees better. Treat raises and promotions seriously. People are not stupid.

    Pros

    Excellent firm, smart people. Access to great clients and good content in financial services.

    Cons

    It can be hard to have access to new accounts and opportunities at this level due to established members in those areas.
