    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great salary bonuses and benefits. My favourite was a subsidised company car (Salary Sacrifice) and great health care. There's also a fair process to get a promotion (rank), get another job within the company or relocate to another city or even country.

    Cons

    Since 2014 they have a tendency to replace everyone in the UK with people in Poland, Argentina and the Philippines.

    Advice to Management

    Stop relocating your staff in third world countries! You have already seen that you don't get the same quality of work! You're making the wrong decisions.

    Very much a people firm - they ensure you are going down the career path you want for yourself. Lots of different projects/extra curricular activities to get involved with

    Pros

    Working in Resourcing at EY is busy and challenging. I learn something new most days and get to work with intelligent, driven stakeholders. EY really cares about the people and I feel valued. No day is ever the same and I really enjoy the work that I do.

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!
