    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.

    Advice to Management

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