Pros

There are many reasons to work for Ernst and Young Global. Firstly, it is a good brand name. Secondly, it provides a very good training ground for the future finance professionals. Thirdly, they have a very good health care benefits. Fourthly, of late they are very much encouraging women, minority and diversity. Fifthly, the partners and managers are very open and approachable and last but not the least, the overall environment is very casual and homely.

Cons

Flip sides are firstly the salary is not at par with the industry or other big four, secondly, the work hours can be very long and thirdly, sometimes politics comes into the play in deciding the promitions.

Advice to Management

Please pay the overtime to the staffs and reduce the minimum utilization target especially when the firm is not paying a lot in terms of salary

    Pros

    Good place to launch a career, before it becomes highly politicized and loses it's meritocracy.

    Cons

    No longer a meritocracy the higher up you go - it becomes solely who you work for and their position within the organization. Partners are fiercely protective of their own fiefdoms and teamwork is an illusion. They will promote their own 'experts' based on their need for utilization and keeping fees in their name rather than bring in the people that actually understand the subject matter.

    Advice to Management

    It can be inconsistent between business units, but the FSO is basically dysfunctional in my opinion.
