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

    Pros

    Large company with my opportunities in any field and location. Good pay and flexible work atmosphere. Easy to transfer between locations.

    Cons

    You have to be proactive and make things happen for yourself, staffing isn't going to give you the best projects.

    Advice to Management

    Partners should be more in touch with the staff. There is a big disconnect

    Pros

    Fast career track with great pay. Access to a vast network of individuals to bounce ideas off of and grow career

    Need to focus on geographies outside of NY. Need to adjust review process to not only focus on sales but to include revenue brought in as well

    Pros

    Well known accounting firm, great experience for resume, decent benefits.

    Experiences are limited depending on which project you are placed on. Promotions are very difficult, very bureaucratic process. Slow to promote and provide leadership opportunities. Heavy emphasis on business development, proposals, and increasing sales and revenue, regardless of rank.
