    Current Employee - Manager in Sydney

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big 4 consultancy culture permeates into analytics initiatives, can win and run bigger projects than other analytics boutique consultancies in Australia

    Cons

    Big 4 consultancy. Audit culture regarding consultants, talent still underappreciated versus bums on seats

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    1. A valuable experience to gain in an extremely "favouritism" and "unfair competitive" environment

    2. Opportunity to learn & do something different out of your comfort zone

    3. Special privilege and perks if you get to be partner's favourites. Example of where you can see less-experienced peers holding a golden "fast track promotion" ticket

    Cons

    1. Employee benefits just for show. Practically speaking, staff can find better deals outside. Limited range of benefits to reward the stress/sacrifices/dedications put into the work

    2. None or limited increment and bonus unless you are partner's favourites

    3. Stingy mentality where staff has to salary sacrifice for many things including getting your free admission to company annual dinner by being a member of the Social Club.

    4. Reality showing many senior managers & above in Advisory is all talk quality but lack of skills to perform the actual work on hand; Can also see most senior managers are all Aussie followed by minority Asian.

    5. Limited career development unless you are partner's favourites. You ended up being thrown around to do the work with zero appreciation while people taking the overall credit, setup for failure, cannot get support ...enough said. If you cannot find a better job out there, you just have to endure and keep working even it means you change your character, change your beliefs, lost your dignity, work till dead, lost friends and families.

    6. Zero empathy for employees with diverse cultural background

    7. Incompetent and disorganised leadership in Advisory department (specifics undisclosed to maintain anonymous)

    8. Never bother complain to HR about "people issues" against Director level and above since they have established a certain level of influential power. If you insist, go straight to FWC with evidence instead of HR else you are just wasting your time. Not worth it.

    Summary: You just have to be bold and always in hostile mode in order to strive in this company else you will be an innocent lamb waiting to be cooked! You will end up not knowing the reason why you are dead.

    Advice to Management

    None really since there are also many positive feedbacks at the same time about the company. It is normal for employees to suck it up in such unfairly competitive environment else staff can just leave the company if they cannot take it. Staff turnover is expected anyway.
