    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Great working conditions, they're very good at making people feel at home and welcome. Very kind hearted people

    Cons

    Very long hours, they make you work lots of hours, and you do not get to sleep very much. This is something that I found very difficult

    Advice to Management

    Make people work less hours. There are times when the hours are a bit excesssive, and I think that you should offer less hours in terms of hours worked
