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

    Pros

    Parthenon was an amazing place where staff and consultants enjoyed great benefits, team-focused collaboration, and mutual respect.

    Cons

    Parthenon-EY was not a mutually amicable relationship. EY's multi-level management structure made progress and career advancement difficult and painful.

    Advice to Management

    Too late to divest in the toxic EY culture. Just don't be EY. They care less about their people and will outsource entire teams to save money.
