    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.

    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.
