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

    Pros

    Great brand recognition, many companies look to hire from the big 4. Travel can be exciting. Great pension for those looking to stay with the company for 10+ years. Excellent opportunity to gain basic managerial experience. Work and experience is available to gain in virtually any field if you are willing to do "busy" work for senior managers.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, work can be repetitive, must adjust to multiple management styles and change your work style to please them all on each individual project. Must answer to both the client and your manager as your boss. No singe direct manager so year end reviews can be very opinionated.

    Advice to Management

    Provide concrete paths to promotions.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Shared Parental leave is very favourable

    Cons

    Growing pains mean some management are left powerless to make changes and retain staff. Leads to poor team spirit.
    Bonus is terrible. 7 years of lies from UKI Advisory leadership about paying good bonus. Bust your rear end for less than 2% bonus. Not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Break the Advisory hard-line grades and compensation hurdles.
