"Great opportunity to learn"

I have been working at EY full-time

Pros

A lot of hands on experience and responsibility out of the gate. Huge opportunity to learn and improve technical expertise.

Cons

At times management can make employees feel like expendable widgets. Probably partially true and the case at all very large firms. No real bonus program for lower-level employees means that only partners benefit from financial success.

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Constant learning environment, yearly promotions (unless you do something really stupid), better than industry raises (although you start lower), great teams, relatively flat structure on the teams on the ground - all levels are listened to and all opinions are considered (of course this depends on the team), lots of flexibility in the summer and anytime if you have the guts to make it happen, opens tons of doors when you decide it's time to leave.

    Cons

    As with all public accounting, the hours are super long and the work is hard. The technology could use some serious upgrading (all new technologies are supposed to roll out within a couple of years). The firm is so large that it is sluggish in responding to changes in the environment resulting in last minute panics to get something else documented in the files (translated - longer hours).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show concern for all levels. Overall, I think the partner group is great and does a good job of making everyone feel important.

    I worked at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big 4 name on your resume
    Excellent learning environment

    Cons

    long hours, will not be appreciated or rewarded for going above and beyond your call of duty even when everyone around you is slacking off

    promotions and raises based on how management likes you not merit

    lowest paid of all the Big 4's

    Advice to Management

    stop playing favorites and reward those employees that deserve it
