    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.
