    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Just made the switch to EY from another Big 4 firm. EY is very much a "people focused" establishment. Impressed with what I've witnessed thus far with respect to how they run the firm, leadership and the collaborative / teaming culture. And they are not afraid to invest in their people (compensation, training).

    Cons

    Nothing so far...I remain optimistic!

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the current agenda and you'll easily beat out the other Big 4 firms in the ongoing "war for talent."

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

    Pros

    For ambitious and motivated individuals, there are lots of opportunities to gain a significant amount of experience quickly. You also are provided with an exceptional amount of resources to develop yourself. They also provide decent perks for working late and traveling, although they don't really offset those cons.

    Cons

    Audit work isn't the most glamorous. Also, the hours and travel can be grueling at times. It's also tough at times to know that you can always leave to go to private industry for a substantial pay raise. Juggling that with when to leave for your long-term career goals can be tricky.
