    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at EY full-time

    Pros

    Graduate programme salary is competitive

    Cons

    The work of a graduate consultant in PI advisory department is so ambiguous that you could end up on a project for two years where you do not get any real business exposure other than general admin.

    Advice to Management

    Create a graduate programme that guarantees varied business experience other than admin and excel spreadsheets.

        I worked at EY full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Generous study leave, great team of graduates, very hands on at all levels so you learn loads, quick and consistently promoted.

        Cons

        Bad work/life balance, little support during very busy times, everyone is always stretched and some people get away with less work. Be aware of the overtime policy. You must work 45 hours a week during busy season as a minimum, you only get 80 hrs back. I've worked over 200 hrs some years so basically lost 120 hrs and didn't even get the full 80hrs due to work commitments. EY are the only firm still doing this as all...

        Advice to Management

        Promote a healthy culture whereby people don't feel guilty for wanting a life outside of work. Growth and increasing profits are great, but remember the consequences of overworking your people.... They leave. Get rid of the overtime policy it's crippling your staff and they aren't being rewarded for the work they are doing.
