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

    Pros

    1) The diversified staffing group. With the DSG, there are two things that happen, that are pretty cool.
    a) You yourself know that if you don't like a particular job, you aren't necessarily stuck doing it.
    b) Other people for the most part are interested in helping you find a group you like.

    2) Great culture for coaching, learning, training, and teaming.

    3) For a Big 4 firm, many people are willing to work with you on flexibility.

    Cons

    1) Like all the Big 4 firms, the hours become rough at times. Even with work-life balance, there is a LOT of work.

    2) With the diversified staffing group, staff and seniors can experience rolling out of one busy season directly into another with no breaks.

    3) While compensation is a good solid start compared to most majors, it's not the top in absolute terms, and when you start looking on a per hour basis, it's not very competitive. This is mostly a Big 4 issue, though.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to spread the workload better. There are some people who are consistently over 100% utilized (and maybe part of the reason is that they are the most desirable employees), but over-utilization burns people out, and there are other employees to smooth out the opportunities for.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Beginning Pay ranges and immediate successes are almost certain. Long term retention and career success requires "right place / right time" and a little backstabbing to get there.

    Cons

    Unrewarding work / life balance. By Year 10 the career plateaus. Unappreciative client base and managers make life difficult. Better than prvious opportunity at Toilet and Douche but looking for career change.

    Advice to Management

    Allow support team to reap the rewards, they made you look good.
