    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good experience and new skills
    reasonable level of pay
    Some client exposure

    Cons

    Do believe you will never get promoted if your not a graduate or in a non technical client facing role and that you are seen as lower in the firm than new grads
    Believe that you will get every crap job going dumped on you from higher levels.
    Long working hours
    Large (read) ridiculous work load

    Advice to Management

    Step outside the London and see the big picture why firm is doing so badly and actually read the leavers comments.
    There are quality people who are non-graduates in the firm with industry experience, but you value these less than new grads !!!
    Stop concentrating on grads and support existing staff and their progression.
    (Some of the grads that have been taking on this year have been unable to pass basic exams in accounting)

    Pros

    Inclusive higher-ups, growth opportunities if you stick around, great benefits

    Cons

    I love the environment at EY compared to what I hear about other Big 4's, but I believe the pay is less and you receive less vacation days. Busy season is hectic and I'm not sure when it ends.

    Advice to Management

    More competitive pay compared to other Big 4's and vacation time
