I worked at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

work at accounting firms is basically the same. the difference is the people. Most in the smaller offices are nice and easy to get along with. Lots of group events paid for by the firm, free food when working late, random free lunches.

Cons

Hours. Busy season is usually over 60 hours per week. Can be hard to work in training if your clients don't follow a traditional busy season schedule

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

    Pros

    Lots of experience in very little time, Great managers and coworkers, okay raises, many career paths.

    Cons

    The rating system is biased. It is on a 1 to 5 scale, unless you do something crazy amazing your first year, you basically will have a 3 rating. Also, if you do not have your CPA they almost always keep your rating at a 3 (which is not fair considering you shouldn't need a CPA for tax accounting). Raises are based on rating, but raises have not been very great anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't change how raises work. You may have noticed many audit people leaving, that will probably happen to your other areas as well if you implement the new raise system.
