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

    Pros

    Great benefits, great place to start

    Cons

    Heavy corporate feel - too much focus on getting new candidates through the door and not enough care given to current employees. Easy to feel lost and unimportant. High turnover places even more stress on employees left at firm. Compensation doesn't feel like it matches work exerted.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your current employees, stop stripping away benefits, find ways to value the constant hard work of your employees.

    Pros

    Co-workers are generally very nice. You learn a lot working here and you build strong client relationships. Firm and team events are very fun! Good training system each year.

    Cons

    It is very political here. Sometimes they do not care about your growth. They just want you swamped you with workload and let you eat hours indirectly. The managements pretend that they care about you while they really do not. Working hours were terrible and there was a lot of unnecessary administrative tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Management should care more about the people than budget! A lot of times, management provides poor planning and rarely takes advice or suggestions from seniors and below.

    Pros

    You get to work with very intelligent and all around great people. The culture is very inclusive and you feel like you can be authentic. Very flexible work arrangement.

    Cons

    EY is a huge organization and with that comes complicated reporting matrices meaning you report to multiple people and having teams spread across the country. They've been slow to evolve and adapt to new technology (but getting better). Nobody says no or takes no for an answer so the entire organization lacks the ability to focus on any core mission.

    Advice to Management

    Focus focus focus. Everyone is spread so thin, we really need to evaluate the true value of every new project or process or solution. Start valuing back office staff the same way you do client serving staff (give bonuses, career advancement opportunities, etc).
