    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great manager and below people
    Good name in the market
    Good place to start a career

    Cons

    They are cutting costs: no plants in office, printing cards on printers now, small working space for senior and staffs, senior managers are 3 to 1 office. These things create a low moral in office and everyone thinks about getting to the next level and leave.
    While PWC and Deloitte are buying other companies like Dimond, PRTM, market point etc. EY is hiring one off partners to thinking that these one offs will grow the business. They are investing more in audit and tax.
    Quality of people is also going down. I referred someone from a top university and they said "he is too good for this place, he will leave us" The company is OK with being mediocre. We use to be much better than this.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up... you are 48th in consulting ranking in Valut. You think that you guys are the best in the market place by picking and choosing the rankings you like to see. STOP BEING MEDIOCRE!! WITH THE HISTORY OF THIS BRAND WE DESERVE MUCH BETTER THAN THIS LEADERSHIP!!!

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

    Pros

    Great people, fun and interesting work, tremendous opportunities to learn and grow your career as you see fit, chances to work side by side with household name and Fortune 500 clients, solid brand, firm is very accommodating of transfers across geographies and even service lines/practices

    Cons

    Consulting practices are shackled by audit practices, compensation over time is not competitive with firms that EY competes with for engagements, support for educational goals (i.e. firm support for employees to get MBAs) is extremely limited right now

    Advice to Management

    Improve compensation model and increase financial support for MBA programs
