Great place to start career, but may not be long-term best fit

I have been working at EY full-time for more than a year

Pros

1) The diversified staffing group. With the DSG, there are two things that happen, that are pretty cool.
a) You yourself know that if you don't like a particular job, you aren't necessarily stuck doing it.
b) Other people for the most part are interested in helping you find a group you like.

2) Great culture for coaching, learning, training, and teaming.

3) For a Big 4 firm, many people are willing to work with you on flexibility.

Cons

1) Like all the Big 4 firms, the hours become rough at times. Even with work-life balance, there is a LOT of work.

2) With the diversified staffing group, staff and seniors can experience rolling out of one busy season directly into another with no breaks.

3) While compensation is a good solid start compared to most majors, it's not the top in absolute terms, and when you start looking on a per hour basis, it's not very competitive. This is mostly a Big 4 issue, though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to spread the workload better. There are some people who are consistently over 100% utilized (and maybe part of the reason is that they are the most desirable employees), but over-utilization burns people out, and there are other employees to smooth out the opportunities for.

    I worked at EY full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    EY's client list in Houston is diverse with many multinational companies headquartered here. EY Gives its auditors the ability to see many different industries. EY offers a very high quality of professional peers.

    Cons

    Travel can be significant as can work hours during busy times. The productive assets at EY are the people, so work hours are directly tied to profitablity.
