    I worked at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Like all big 4 firms, the entry-level training is excellent, and access to diverse experiences is abundant. Level of responsibility growth generally outpaces industry.

    Cons

    Equipped with world class training, employees easily find better work/life balance and substantially better pay and benefits within industry at the heavy-senior and young manager levels. It is also at these levels that training and mentorship sharply decline, and the performance expectations become terribly ambiguous. As a result; the good people leave, the bad people are forced to leave, and the mediocre become partners.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be a better answer to the work/life balance, salary and benefit issues in order to compete with industry and keep the best and brightest. The initial investment has to be too prohibitive to let good people walk out the door.
