    Pros

    You get to work with mostly young people with similar views and they are super willing to help you learn.

    Cons

    The expectations are really unrealistic and no one is really happy. I hate that they promote the designation to much but it takes 5 years of unhappiness to obtain. The busy season long hours and short time frames to complete projects clearly cause a lot of stress for most.

    Advice to Management

    It isn't really their fault that this is the case at EY. It's just the structure and way of the business. All they can do is be supportive and realistic.

    Pros

    Excellent mentorship/counseling program, good feedback system, I always felt like my manager was looking out for my best interests. Definitely a place where you can chart your own growth and make requests which will be taken seriously.

    Cons

    Wasn't terribly fond of co-workers - many were nerdy, not as intelligent as I would expect in high ranking positions, or some were rude. Work life balance is often an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Continue ensuring you hire the best and brightest - this is what the E&Y reputation consists of, but in some areas, I'm not sure it is true.
