    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    1) Work hours rarely go over 8
    2) Has access to a lot of good databases. Good for learning (initiative needs to be taken by you)
    3) Good exposure for a graduate (fresher), provided you get a good team & boss (I was lucky to get both)
    4) Has great flexibility for leaves/work from home
    5) Provides transport and deducts a paltry sum for it

    Cons

    1) 'Visibility' prevails over 'performance and knowledge'. Bootlickers get promoted like a rocket while genuine performers are left behind. 'Who danced on Annual Day/organized Rangoli competition is more important than who got an exceptional client feedback !!' Ridiculous to say the least.
    2) Its a Quagmire. Once you step in, there is no going out. Extremely limited exit options.
    3) Dirty politics at senior management level and you bear the brunt
    4) Non-transparency at all levels in all aspects
    5) Significant amount of money is wasted on some stupid 'soft-skills' training programs. The firm lacks some rigorous 'hard-skills' training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize genuine performers, stop dirty politics, bring transparency and introduce some training programs that make sense
