    Pros

    - can be a good name on a resume for anyone interested into pursuing accounting related roles outside of EY

    Cons

    - hours are LONG
    - very unflexible work schedule. if senior managers or partners want you to work late - you're stuck!
    - absolutely NO benefits from working late. all we get is an occasional "thank you" from the partners (for making them boatloads of money)
    - very hard to break into any decent job outside of accounting. breaking into a bank or hedge fund into a front office role is nearly impossible. it's not a good place to start a career if you're ambitious.
    - 401k match is one of the worst available
    - no gym reimbursement
    - forced to travel with little to no notice, months at a time
    - the "people first" culture that they emphasize to potential candidates is non-existent...well unless you count the partners as people
    - very little minority representation at partner level

    Basically, every hour worked by an EY employee brings in x dollars to EY. Employees get a flat salary w/ no bonus. Therefore, to make the most money, it's best to keep staffing low and just produce the most work out of the limited resources available. So if you work 100 hours in a week, you are bringing in a lot of money for the company...none of which you will see a single penny of. This is great for the greedy partners, but what can you do...

    Advice to Management

    - provide employees with some type of incentive for working the insane hours that they work
    - stop being cheap and increase staffing
    - be honest during recruitment process

    Increase in compensation may lead to a lower turnover ratio and happy employees
