Current Employee - Transaction Advisory Services Senior in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Transaction Advisory Services Senior in Chicago, IL
Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at EY full-time (More than a year)

Pros

good business growth prospect
strong culture of inclusion
competitive starting salaries and benefits
mostly helpful colleagues
great opportunities at client engagements
your manager may give you a lot of responsibility and freedom to be creative in how you deliver work products

Cons

terrible IT and tech system infrastructure, but it is slowly being upgraded
under-reporting hours is unofficially expected
stated cultural values are not always evident in practice
poor work-life balance
utilization achievement is out of the control of managers and below in rank but people are measured by this in performance reviews
complex and onerous expense reimbursement policies

Advice to Management

provide consultants an environment where they can come to management to ask difficult questions and not fear retaliation in performance reviews
make sure that things stated in orientation will ring true to people once they are hired
be more realistic in terms of how much extra work (off hours and weekends) you expect out of your people in addition to doing project work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, competitive compensation (for an internship).
    There are a lot of opportunities. Importance of feedback.

    Cons

    I said there were a lot of opportunities, however, to get them, there is a lot of politics to do and especially to be in really good terms with the person in charge of the schedules

    Advice to Management

    Management should sometimes put less pressure on their employees by affecting more staff on some difficult missions
