    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    EY Social Club often puts on some fun events, made some great friends within my peer group

    Cons

    The work is extremely boring, everyone seems demotivated and it is hard to draw inspiration from anyone. I felt like I was becoming duller the longer I stayed in that role and that I had much more to give. Zero sense of accomplishment or value add, and that doesn't seem like it changes the more senior you get.

    I also worked on their biggest client and was pulling midnight hours for months on end.

    Pros

    Good work environnent, culture and you'll work with smart people.

    Career evolution is almost only sales oriented, so if you are not interested in that kind of job it can become limited as your career progress

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

    Pros

    Diversity and Inclusion, different experiences because of the variety of projects, most people are smart and efficient, good name to have on your CV.

    Cons

    Hierarchical discrimination, - If you are a Grad, Consultant or even a Senior Consultant, it is very common to be ignored by higher people in the company when you emailed them about something that is not important for them.
    Unable to contribute with ideas - The person with the highest position always decides what to do and rarely lets staff with a lower rank contribute with ideas.
    High Turnover Rate - EY is good selling themselves and attracting people but most of them start looking for a new job after less than a year. It is depressing to have a farewell party every Friday.
    No Work/Life Balance - People who work in internal teams (HR) keep posting on linkedin about flexibility at EY and how they can work from a cafe during the week. Client facing employees need to be at the client's office everyday before 9 and work very long hours, and then spend their weekend trying to catch up with work and admin things like doing expenses.

    Advice to Management

    - Treat people from lower ranks with the same respect you show to partners.
    - Create an environment where everyone can express how they feel about work and their supervisors. Everyone is afraid of telling their partner or engagement manager that they are unhappy because they will give you back a bad feedback and promotions are subjective. The only time when people can tell their supervisors how the feel is when they resign.

    Pros

    Strong global brand, great colleagues. If you are looking to climb the ladder in a traditional consulting firm - there is little better place to be.

    Cons

    Remuneration is poor, old-fashioned advancement structure limits year on year progression
