Pros

E&Y is an excellent company to work for if you are a driven individual that has a strong desire to take control of your own career. You have almost unlimited opportunity within a service line alone as long as the ability to move between service lines (if you are a high performer). If you're willing to put in the work, you can build a very successful career.

Cons

The pay compared to industry is... low. You need need to be willing to give up any social life during busy season. Depending the clients you are on the work-life balance is not ideal. You are the low man on the totem pole as a staff meaning you have to do some b***h work (ie get coffee, order/pick up dinner, file stuff).

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good experience
    Good networking
    Get the opportunity to take on leadership opportunities for Training, Networking, Business Development, and Mentoring/Coaching of other professionals

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is with leadership. As a Manager in Advisory, it has been challenging to obtain the right mentoring/coaching from Partners. Salary is low, and very challenging to negotiate, even as a performer that consistently exceeds or significantly exceeds expectations.

    Advice to Management

    The professionals from senior through manager are key to the risk management and success of the firm. Look for ways to integrate these professionals further, aside from Trainings or soft ways in which mentoring/coaching is intended to occur.

    Pros

    Smart people, well organized practices, ability to work in teams and collaborate knowledge. Capable management.

    Cons

    Not as international as PWC or Deloitte - focus on national practice

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to vet your own opinions. Select only one leader on client pursuits that represents EY as a firm not 10 cooks in one kitchen. If they succeed promote them if they fail give them a second chance. If they fail again - fire them, but don't be afraid to put all the eggs in one basket - by giving people opportunities - that's the real value in EY that makes it different from the other Big 4 robots.
