    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at EY-Parthenon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic partners - experienced leaders who genuinely care about mentorship and helping you grow as a consultant Superb projects - only high calibre strategy work Unparalleled growth opportunities - being part of a young office means you get the chance to step-up and grow much quicker than in other more established organisations

    Cons

    Workload - typical of consulting and tends to trend upwards of 12-14 hours per day Remuneration - significantly lower than MBB Young team - difficulty delivering projects given that the team is relatively young

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in maintaining a distinctive culture but focus on improving remuneration. Otherwise there will be issues around retention once people start looking for other higher paying opportunities.

  6. "Great people. Work-life balance can be non-existent at times."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at EY-Parthenon full-time

    Pros

    The people really are great. It's a fun, collegial environment with a lot of "smart, nice, driven" young people. And the compensation is very competitive.

    Cons

    Constant stream of due diligence projects can be a grind, and make work-life non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Add one more junior people to teams. It would solve a lot of problems.

    I have been working at EY-Parthenon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - People are very interested in your learning and development; as a consultant, you are the product, so expect investment into your growth - People are actually nice and caring, as advertised.. a lot of commitment to building culture, especially in smaller offices

    Cons

    - Work hours are long, expect burnout over time - In many situations you will be a case-taker, not a case-chooser, and will be subject to the most common industries represented by your office

    Advice to Management

    Do not burn out your best people, just because this is known to be a high turnover industry does not mean you should take this for granted.
