    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CV, variance of potential clients, really intelligent mix of staff

    Cons

    Dynamics of Audit, Tax, Advisory simply doesn't gel and there is no room for entrepreneurship . Audit business hampers the progression of the Advisory to a crippling state. Also such a culture promoting women ahead of men day after day, creating special events in every sector at every level just for women, that it now goes against there own aims of 'balance'.

    Equal opportunities is just that , Equal. Creating inequality for the sake of looking to create Equality is perverse

    Advice to Management

    Sell the Audit business and or the Advisory practice, they cannot co-exist and constantly trying to find a work around should be telling. Realise that the 20-40 year olds are not responsible for the gender inequality of the past, offer the same opportunities in terms of special training, mentoring and promotion to the men also.
