  1. "If you're intelligent and willing to work to prove it, you'll succeed with E&Y."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The partners and employees are really devoted to excellence. Commitment, dedication and hard work are rewarded (though sometimes it might take longer than you hoped). The corporate culture is welcoming, open and friendly. People really do enjoy their work here. Knowledge sharing and re-use is a priority, and there is always a resource, or several, to fall back on.

    Cons

    Long hours and travel requirements can take their toll. A very few partners and employees have not bought in to the overall culture of teaming, but they are the exceptions. There is always more money to be made elsewhere, but it can be hard to leave behind the perks.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate honestly and openly with employees in these turbulent times.


  2. "Excellent start to your career"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Does wonders for your resume. It's like serious boot camp for your career. Loads of training/technical development. A ton of intelligent people to learn from constantly. You are always being challenged by both senior management and the clients.

    Cons

    Same as with all big 4. Long hours with very little incentives. You're essentially on your own and HR is not useful as in a typical company. The pay does not compensate for the work you do, but there's delayed gratification in how much you can make when you leave. Very little work/life balance for those looking to raise a family and have a life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Implement annonymous upward feedback so you can get an idea of what your staff think of their seniors/mgrs etc management skills.
