Pros

Great place to start a career. Culture of the company is great with even greater people to work along side with. People there are very helpful and partners always have an open door policy. Plus, they are smart as hell. Definitely a resume builder if employed here for a few years. Variety of fields to be involved in so you can learn something new everyday.
Great firm to use to open doors.

Cons

Long hours, but it is worth while and meaningful work. Its accounting, so could be boring for some people. Starting salary is on the lower end, as compared to other firms.

Advice to Management

Provide more training.

    Pros

    EY gives their employees an amazing diversity of experiences in which to work, as well as uncommon exposure to our clients' executive management at an early age. As an intern while still a junior in college, I interned with EY and met with several CFO's and CEO's under the direction of my senior management. After a few years in working with EY in one city, I asked to move to another office and was able to with less than 3 months notice. I even received a large raise as a result in the difference in average cost of living. EY has continued to challenge me by exposing me to a number of new settings every year and keep me in touch with the upper leadership of our clients.

    Cons

    In the advisory practice, seniors and up are expected to drive their own careers and work hard for their own defined goals. This requires a lot of self-determination, drive and ambition which can be frustration for those looking for more guidance or a 9-5 type job. In addition, managing a book of clients just 2-3 years out of school can be overwhelming to some, juggling competing priorities and demands from several managers. Finally, excessive travel can quickly tire those who aren't proactive in managing their schedule and finding work that fits their traveling preferences.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more mentoring and more constant feedback to your employees. Take time to get to know your employees, not just their work agendas but their hobbies, activities and interests. Spend a couple dollars on a happy hour or more creative office event once in a while to make the office feel more like a family. Don't be so adverse to risk - creativity can sometimes be crushed by those who are afraid to change or don't want to be the one's held accountible if a new idea doesn't pan out the first time.
