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

Pros

They are pretty big on flexibility in my office, taking time off is not too painful when it is no busy season. There is plenty of opportunity to grow as much as you want as fast as you want.

Cons

Busy seasons are brutal. The overall environment is a little too "sink-or-swim" which quickly weeds out those who cannot handle the job. However, I have found that the longer you are with the Firm, the easier it gets, and the opportunities are there if you want them.

Advice to Management

The culture, from my experience, is too "corporate" (i.e. cut-throat). I would like to see a move towards more of a teaming culture.
