Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good starting salary, good pension scheme, good company benefits, occasionally taken out for lunch with clients and invited to attend the 'surf' bars (free alcohol), provided with a company phone and laptop.

Cons

Strict exam policy, long hours, tedious expense forms, inflexible holiday leave, rude managers, over inflated egos, ridiculously high expectations, little reward or recognition for good work, poor on-the-job training, lots of irrelevant emails from upper management, level of security to access systems is beyond a joke.

Advice to Management

Don't treat employees like slaves, and the partners need to take more notice of how lower level staff are treated by their immediate seniors. The cultures and values of the firm should reflect the actual business and not just be for marketing/PR purposes.
