Pros

Role is constantly evolving so that as you become comfortable in a position you are asked to grow and take on more. It is often challenging and fulfilling.

Cons

Investments in time / effort can have deferred pay outs, i.e. career milestones are years apart. Performance bonuses (not guaranteed of course) do not seem to approximate effort required to receive. Demanding hours during cyclical busy seasons and project dead lines. Working for many different clients and internal management styles.

Advice to Management

Keep it up.

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility to work and learn, with intelligent and compassionate people. Most of the advisory folks I've met are sharp, but very down to earth. The firm respects work life balance more than many places (comparing to I-banks and strategy focused firms) though that depends on your managers of course. There are a lot of learning opportunities here, and a job well done is almost always acknowledged and applauded on a personal level (if not necessarily in compensation).

    Cons

    Slow moving company, especially with promotions. Being part of the advisory group can be tough. Despite being the fastest growing part of the firm, the audit folks still rule the roost, and like to saddle everyone with the same sorts of compliance tools and processes equally (whether or not they're relevant). This isn't a huge issue, but is a burden. Also, even though our advisory revenues/profits are increasing, pay increases, bonuses, and promotions feel tight, possibly because other parts of the firm aren't performing as well as hoped.

    Advice to Management

    While it might be inconvenient for some in the firm, remember to invest in the parts of the firm that are growing disproportionately. That includes both hiring (which EY is doing well) AND compensating those already here.
