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

    Pros

    Decent social package, some flexibility (opportunity to work remotely on Fridays, not strict dress code). The environment strongly depends on the team and location, as well as the growth and interest of engagements. Try to speak to as many people from your team as possible. It really matters, who exactly you will work with.

    Cons

    Busy season (1/4 of the year) - be ready to work 55+ hours per week officially. You always feel that you are a part of a big audit company and that you are the "resource" to be "utilized". That's why utilization matters the most. Bright slogans about people development are only slogans. Technical skills of many employees are low, and, what's worse, people are not encouraged to develop them.

    Advice to Management

    Be more strategic and technological not only in strategic documents, but in everyday operations. 50% of work that people do here should and will be soon replaced by robots and algorithms. So it would be smarter to hire and to develop those within the company, who are ready to drive technologies, but not those who have industry knowledge and is developing in hundreds of internal paperwork and procedures.

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    During my short time in public accounting, I've found EY to be incredibly accommodating and flexible... The rumors that working in the Big4 was gonna be a real drain hasn't panned out be true thus far. I have found that you are expected to work hard, but are continually valued and not just treated as an expendable cog.

    Cons

    Long hours and hard work... but that shouldn;t necessarily be seen as a "con". It's kinda just a requirement of delivering excellent client service - however long it takes to get the job done is however long it takes.

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Managers were excellent
    Lots of education/learning opportunities
    Diverse group of projects

    Cons

    None that truly stick out - maybe one small con is that it can be difficult to get placed on your desired project, but with enough internal networking it's possible.
