    Pros

    Crystal clear advancement process, decent corporate culture

    Cons

    I received a job offer, but after 3 different recruiters couldn't bother to respond to my emails, I decided it wasn't for me.

    Advice to Management

    Obviously assurance is crucial to the firm's success, yet if you work as an auditor you will feel like the bottom of the Totem Pole,

  5. "Talent mangement consultant"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, large organization with a powerful network, very team focused.

    Cons

    The strategic direction of the human capital group is unclear at times. Very hard to get staffed on talent projects which leads to low utilization, this negatively impacts your end of year rating.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be more transparency around the opportunities in each human capital area. More direct conversations linked to type of work employees desire to do and how to make that bridge with the current and future opportunities within the firm.

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

    Pros

    Awesome benefits (I have 3 weeks vacation, 10 holidays, 3 personal days, and can do for 5 or 10 unpaid additional days off)
    Great employee culture (I wouldn't say that it is tight-knit, but I love the inclusive, collaborative atmosphere and enjoy spending time with my colleagues as individuals because they are down-to-earth and motivated)

    Cons

    Depends on the project, but some projects can have more than 40+ client billable hours per week. Generally, solid work life balance, but it depends on upper level management on your engagement.
    Lots of PMO work
    No other complaints that are unique to EY (I don't like the Mon-Thurs travel lifestyle, but that would happen at most consulting firms)

    Advice to Management

    Consider sponsoring MBAs

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

    Pros

    Reasonable Firm for students first job.

    Cons

    Not well structured. Top exec's lack vision, leadership and attitude.
    Currently influenced by and run as a mini Accenture firm, favoring Ex-Accenture employees who in many case don't fit the qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring from one Firm, this will dilute the value of EY stands for and how EY operates.

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Supportive and open culture. Lots of opportunities to move between different practices. Work life balance is real and partners provide flexibility.

    Cons

    Travel can be quite challenging if you have a small family. Really high utilization percentages for a consulting company for senior managers who also focus on sales.

    Advice to Management

    The management does a really good job of grooming resources and assisting with growth and trainings. I would like them to think about rationalizing high utilization vs. sales goals to make things delivery vs. sales more effective.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture, Benefits, inclusiveness and diversity. Large and small clients to work on. Remote work opportunities. I've had a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    First few years you have little control over your career (clients, teams). I've found that the experience is very dependent on what team and client you are put on.

    Advice to Management

    More frequent bonus/incentives for Out of Scope work

    Pros

    Great colleagues
    Interesting work (most of the time)
    Work life balance

    Cons

    As with most consulting firms, it all really depends on your projects. My first couple projects were very interesting but then I was put onto a federal engagement which literally sucked the life out of me, which is why I left.
