No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great learning opportunities and ways to reinvent yourself. Entrepreneurial culture doesn't stifle its employees.

Cons

Always following PwC's lead in the industry. Laggard in pay. Not a tightly run operation although that has some pluses, too (more entrepreneurial and opportunities to move around the firm).

Advice to Management

More competitive pay. Stop waiting 3 years before you follow PwC's lead and try to come up with some original ideas of your own.

    I worked at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start your career, encourage passing the CPA, great people to work with - met some of my best friends there

    Cons

    Hours, no appreciation, top performers are not rewarded neither through compensation or better development opportunities, too much travel to PA suburbs

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your top employees and maybe they won't all leave!
