    I have been working at EY full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When starting out, you are surrounded by a class of over 100 people your age which makes integrating into your career a more smooth and like-minded process. You will be absolutely floored by how much information you will learn in at this Company. There are many groups within the company that are open to anyone joining, and there are many volunteering opportunities if that is your passion.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the business, there are long hours, especially during busy season. Trick here is to curb your expectations and realize what you are getting yourself into. Experience at the firm is very team dependent - if you are on a great team, work is a piece of cake. However, if you are on a team that doesn't quite mesh or has high turnover, it can be more of a stuggle to maintain a level head.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic expectations during recruiting. Of course some people will get scared off, but that also means higher retention as those who end up joining the firm are more likely to stick around.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Huge diversity of work opportunities, loads of client interface with leading companies, a firm you're proud to work for, plenty of good, smart and hard working people who give their best. Despite the cons, excellent overall firm.

    Cons

    Outside the overall outstanding 'Welcome to EY' program, actually integrating newcomers into the firm seems a mix of luck and randomness. There is little tolerance for not 'talking the talk and walking the walk' of 'classic' management consulting. The firm recognizes that we need to be innovative, now I'd like to see the majority of PPEDs (who grew up in pre-financial crisis consulting days) actually start living it.

    Advice to Management

    Comp - we got to get this fixed. SMs need to paid like people who have to raise families and pay taxes. There should be a modest comp adjustment for those living in high cost areas.

    Pros

    Professional team with highly motivated coworkers.

    Cons

    Overloaded of works and the recruiting procedure could be unpredictable.

    Advice to Management

    Open more positions to non-accounting background candidate and encourage them to study for cpa before getting accdpted.
