    I have been working at EY as an intern (Less than a year)

    EY Provides great train programmes for students. It helps them to gain an insight into the industry.

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

    Pros

    Flexible, international, offering very diverse experiences, open to people from various backgrounds, working with major clients in a very nice and energetic atmosphere.

    Cons

    As it is a big organisation, it has quite strong processes, which may make things run a bit slowly. Additionally, in the UK, the profitability objectives put a lot of pressure on salaries and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Giving more flexibility to partners with regard to people recognition would likely give them the possibility to be fairer in their people decisions with regard to high performers.
