    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Good team structure, workload between grads is often not equal in any way shape or form. Good canteen but expensive.

    Cons

    Stress. Political. Favouritism. Long work hours for relatively low pay. No bonus and salary increase very low (inflation pay revoked).

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your good staff not just the ones that play the political game. Partners need to far more accessible to junior staff.

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

    Pros

    Great brand, great locations and infrastructure. Seen as a major player in my industry sector. Trusted brand. Some great opportunities if you fit the bill and can live with the politics.

    Cons

    Partners are clearly only interested in themselves. Not really practising what they preach in terms of flexible working. Not much technical depth / expertise and too much focus on audit. Lots of inter departmental tension at the partner level.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the promotion process. It's getting in the way of doing the job.

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Opportunities to move within the firm in a lateral career move. If you are a high performer, international opportunities and mentoring

    Long work hours. Flex working depends entirely on what kind of manager you have and what part of the business you work in, so all the worklife balance talk is just talk. All about which Partners are in your corner.

    Put your money where your mouth is re flex working. Recognise there are people that are terrible managers even if they are good workers. Recognise the junior and grunt workers
