    I worked at EY full-time

    Pros

    Good learning opportunities. You can take on more challenging responsibilities year over year. Lots of firm events and happy hours.

    Cons

    Bad work life balance. Ridiculous amount of bonus. Bad rating system where your accomplishments and hard work don't get recognized.

    I worked at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing people I will have in my life forever

    Company values, including those toward employees

    Flexibility

    Networking and potential to make connections all over the world if you choose to use the firm that way

    Cons

    You’ll get paid market rate for your rank/title but with 200,000+ employees it has to be that way I suppose

    Can feel like you’d make more of an impact outside EY

    Sheer size of the company can make you feel slotted into a role that’s very specific/boring

    Advice to Management

    My management was amazing

    As hard as it must be, try to truly incentivize people who go above and beyond
