    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Joined on the graduate scheme and got a lot of learning opportunities in the 2 years that you wouldnt get at a smaller firm. Also got a lot of exposure to senior management, but that was by virtue of being in a small technical team, and not one of the massive Performance Improvement/Operations teams.

    Cons

    The 'firm' doesn't care about people, even though some individuals do. There is a decent culture for such a big firm but it's not for someone looking to be hand held through.

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to your people, as they are your asset

    - Good supportive culture
    - Big firm with benefits to match
    - Hours aren't too bad
    - Lots of interesting / respectful / dynamic people

    Cons

    The company is too large in general, and that makes it difficult to feel like you get a chance to impress or stand out (particularly with regards to promotions / bonus / pay)

    Pros

    Good people, good experience, ok level of exposure to higher level client executives. Good diversity of work. On the jobs training. Flexible working.

    Cons

    Disorganised teams, treated like a number. Partners for the most part only focus on their revenue goals to the expense of their staff. Constant cost cutting and price completion is going to result in job losses down the road.
