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

Pros

The number of significant clients; the chance to transfer within both the US and internationally; the people and technology are good

Cons

number of hours annually is significant and the pay on an hourly basis is not that great; tough to make partner and too political

Advice to Management

keep up the good work and readjust the firm's succession plan by making more younger partners now as the baby boomers will be retiring

    I worked at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good/decent growth since they place a lot of responsibility on you
    Some of the people are great to work with, very focused and professional

    Cons

    Compensation - All of the big 4 underpay with 'future' promises of a windfall if/when you make partner. At the end of the day, after late nights and weekends, you'll feel extremely short-changed. Those who are motivated (and smart) are better served leaving as Managers.
    Culture - Even though it definitely is not as aggressive as the other big 4, it leaves a lot to be desired. Extremely conservative and risk averse, there is a huge disconnect between the staff/senior and upper management. A spine is something they need, since they often fail to take a stance in front of clients.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the wealth, you charge the client a ridiculous hourly rate yet only the partners really see the lions share of that money, especially those who are retired (in this age, a fat pension is dragging you back). Do what it takes to raise the standards of your consultants (incentives, layoffs) and them compensate them appropriately. A top heavy structure is crushing the staff, those who are smart and motivated will do what it takes to make it to the top, incentivize them.
