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

    Pros

    International Company, flexible work schedule, great vacation

    Cons

    EY is a great company, but is mostly focused on client serving personnel and tends to forget about admin support positions.

    Advice to Management

    Your admin support team are the backbone of your company. Treat them like you appreciate their contribution to your success.

    Solid pay, great people, good balance

    Pros

    Great coworkers who genuinely care about each other. The work I do is enjoyable and EY provides the framework to allow that to happen. Support is abundant throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Personally I'm not a huge fan of the mid year/yearly review process. It's a bit artificial to submit self review over and over again. I would prefer if it consisted of reviews from fellow coworkers/managers.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at EY (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to interact with all different levels of the organization, both within EY and at clients. Plenty of opportunities for growth and world-class training.

    Cons

    Depending on client base, work / life balance can be very tough to achieve (that's why I left). But the training gave me a solid base for the rest of my career.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really to think of. Work / life balance issues is a common issue to any professional services firm, so not a knock on the firm itself.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Hours are long (more a function of the industry). Firm preaches flexibility but doesn't always live up to it in practice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring good people.

    Pros

    Great support network and brand recognition

    Cons

    Not a truly rotational program that allows staff to try different areas before aligning to a practice

    Pros

    Incredible brand to have on your resume. Leaving EY after 10 years provided me with very broad base of experiences that helped me advance my career.

    Cons

    Work life balance is tough.

    Advice to Management

    Probably the biggest thing is watching out for employees who are over worked and ensuring they take vacation. If people don't recharge, they suffer from burnout.

    Pros

    Very professional and progressive firm with wide client base and deep roots. Wealth of internal resources and knowledge to support deliver and growth.

    Cons

    This is a huge firm so you need to make your own efforts outside of delivery to build a solid network.
