I have been working at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

People, opportunities, big clients, reasonable pay if you ask for it. Global opportunities. Good name. Good to the community and environment. Extreme learning curve.

Cons

Not much. Cheap training facilities. Politics. Expense cut backs.

Advice to Management

Keep it real. Be good to the quality people. Don't promote robots, keep the good people persons in high management. Spend more on training.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This review relates to Advisory services and specifically Performance Improvement. Smart, high-quality people at all levels. Culture of flexible work within the demands of the client and/or project. Commitment to developing people through education and on the job training. Rigorous performance review process.

    If you are looking for challenging work and learning opportunities, this is a good company. It is a great firm to be a partner in, or to have on your resume. Understand which direction you are headed in and you can capitalize on your opportunities to build a career.

    Cons

    Demanding client work plus the expectation of contributing to sales pursuits and internal initiatives drives a work/life imbalance.

    Titles at EY (in Performance Improvement) work at a lower level compared to other Big 4 firms. For example, Managers very often have no oversight or project leadership roles and are primarily responsible for developing work products individually rather than managing teams. Put another way, EY does not leverage lower level consultants well.

    There is a small variable pay component instituted for FY13 to be paid out in early FY14. It is based solely on performance among peers and depends on the firm hitting overall goals.

    The primary incentive program is getting promoted, and he up-or-out model means that compensation and career advancement are limited to your ability to outperform your peer group. This is not bad by itself, but is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make consultants eat hours without compensation so that partners can realize their profitability goals without compensating.


  2. "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.
