    I worked at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good client mix, variety in the types of work, quite a diverse team at lower to mid management levels, good office location

    Cons

    Long term projects suck with no hope of getting off them, diversity non existent at senior management levels, no real focus on people, benefits are poor, salaries not much better

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach - you may sell yourself as a people centric organisation, but that requires buy in from all senior management. Certainly is not the case at the moment!!

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

    Pros

    A big 4 is a great place to start a career and I've had some fantastic experiences and exposure to senior members of clients that I likely wouldn't get elsewhere.

    Cons

    You have to play a very political game if you're going to succeed. Associates' career goals are not taken seriously and they are often left on projects in areas of little to no interest to them for long periods of time. Requests to move or specialise are ignored and advice often takes the form of "keep the head down and climb the ladder". Not much focus is put on job satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Take associates more seriously when they request to specialise and ensure that job satisfaction is at the forefront of your employee strategy.
