    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Focused on innovation. And technology, there is an open admission that pressure on Audit means the Partnership must adapt rapidly to the World we live in, and not stay chained to the ideas of the world of the ‘Mad Men’.
    It could be so much more.

    Cons

    Paralysed by internal divisions and archaic, unresponsive internal controls . With a focus on technology and innovation, the organisation is at war with itself on so many levels, little actual innovation is achievable. It will stumble along until the new economy hollows it out.

    Advice to Management

    Revise and automate the bureaucracy. It has killed innovation on many of the initiatives I have seen in the firm with old world thinking and glacial response time.

    "Snr Manager"

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in London, England
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in London, England

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

    Pros

    Good if you want an easy ride as it's not challenging.

    Cons

    A little bit boring, not very innovative, partners tend to like to throw their weight around now and again & not stick to company policy, say they are into diversity but have observed behaviour far from that from one of the senior team members ironically at one of their diversity courses.

    Advice to Management

    I would wipe a lot of the dead wood partners, especially those not in fee earning roles, who don't seem to do anything.

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

    Pros

    - Great projects across multiple industries
    - For juniors the company invest in personal development which makes it a good place to start
    - Invest in Digital

    Cons

    - Experience depends on the team and the senior manager of each project
    - Resourcing is based on who is available and not on career objectives
    - Red tape due to auditing results to boring internal work
    - Your life during Monday-Thursday belongs to the company so do not expect to have social plans on weekdays

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a better resourcing system that considers multiple factors during decision making
