    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at EY-Parthenon full-time

    Pros

    People are truly smart, nice, and driven. Workplace is associate-driven, so it's generally fun, friendly, and inclusive. Split of male to females is roughly even. I and others have met life-long friends and companions here. There is above-average visibility and exposure to clients, complex analysis, and management opportunities. Not having to travel is a huge bonus over other consulting firms and will allow you to actually have a life outside of work M-F. Work is predominately PE diligence which means your clients will be sharp and analytical, creating a pretty amazing growth environment and steep learning curve. The career path from associate to consultant is tightly sequenced and pushes you outside of your comfort zone consistently in the best way possible.

    Cons

    Hours can be long in PE diligence land. Increasing involvement of EY in Parthenon decisions is unideal.
