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

    Pros

    High importance placed on team quality and hugely varied experiences and opportunities. You can style your own career and generally promotions are quite fast paced.

    Cons

    There are long hours as standard (particularly within the Investment Banking Sector) and there is constant change. You have to be ok with not always knowing where you will be working the following week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep staff informed of change and find a way to make staff more aware of all the project opportunities and possibilities that are out there for a more self sustaining resourcing model.

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

    Pros

    Great culture, great colleagues (for the most part), a fair approach to work life a balance and a genuine interest in people from all levels.

    Cons

    As with all Big 4, your promotion is largely dependent on time served at each grade so it can be a bit boring between years. Pay is a bit below market but we get a lot more flexibility in exchange.

    Advice to Management

    Try to build a genuine meritocracy - good people are leaving even though they love the firm

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

    Pros

    - Strong support network (people/resources)
    - Flexible work/life balance

    Cons

    - Opaque performance review process
    - Project resourcing based upon who you know, and being in right place and right time
    - Little say on what projects one takes on (was repeatedly assigned roles not suited to me)
    - Poor benefits (healthcare scheme not inclusive compared to competitors, no bonus for all staff for previous 2 years)

    Encourage partners to do more to retain staff
