I worked at EY full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good, collaborative culture. Pay range for those not in client-serving roles (legal, marketing, IT, HR etc.) typically higher than other industries.

Cons

Hard to diss a company that's consistently on the Fortune 100 Best Companies list, BUT... As much as they talk about work-life balance, the reality is long hours and always connected for many roles. As much as they talk about diversity, ageism is alive and well in hiring and downsizing practices. As much as they talk about a culture of inclusion, the partnership model clearly creates an unequal class structure between client-serving and support roles.

Advice to Management

Need to create career paths for those who are not client-serving.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience and good exposure to different culture. PTO policy is a plus from May - December when vacation is possible.

    Cons

    Company preaches flexibility however in practice work-life balance seems non-existent. Company is short on resources as turnover in this industry is a big issue. Compensation isn't great considering the workload required.

    Advice to Management

    Work to retain your best talent through offering incentives to stay. Management should show they care about retention and make it a priority. Compensation should be comparable with the Market.


  2. "work experience"
