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

    Pros

    Great place to build a career. If your team is all working hard and has a decent brain, the job can actually be pretty enjoyable.

    Cons

    Too much work for a senior to do for not enough pay or benefits. Staff, Managers, and Senior Managers seem to take advantage or just don't care and anyone who does care ends up working too much, so you learn to not care in order to have a life.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better, more motivated and intelligent people to help us out. Seems like anyone can get an offer. Of course, there has to be an incentive for people to take this job as well.

    Pros

    Large company with my opportunities in any field and location. Good pay and flexible work atmosphere. Easy to transfer between locations.
