    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

    Respected name that is good on a resume

    Cons

    Work and happiness can depend almost entirely on the people on the smaller team you're a part of. Many teams have a few toxic individuals that make work terrible for everyone and this is hard to discover until starting.

    Pros

    Great training and benefits, competitive salary. I've gotten the opportunity to do work for some really interesting private equity firms.

    Cons

    Busy season is extremely tough, expect 80-95 hour weeks for several months at a time. You may get staffed on clients with merging busy seasons.

    Advice to Management

    Listen better, and improve tax technology. Jobs that should take a few hours can stretch to days due to excel crashing and new tools clearly having bugs even when fully rolled out to the practice.
