    Pros

    - Learning and professional development
    - Interesting work with great responsibility at early stage
    - Salary package
    - Excellent travel opportunities

    Cons

    - Work/life balance. None at all
    - Not the most supportive environment . Bias towards a very specific personality type
    - No clear set of responsibilities, which means work is just transferred downwards to the associate

    Advice to Management

    - Dictate a clear set of JDs and enforce it
    - Enforce work life balance by setting longer cases and sacrificing a bit of revenue to reduce attrition
    - Diversify the type of people recruited
    - Enforce a supportive environment for women to work in, and rules against sexist comments and behaviour

    "Great office culture, emphasis on teamwork"

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at EY-Parthenon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked at Mumbai and Singapore office for 2+ years - Mumbai office is young and vibrant, there is lots of teamwork, and management structure is quite flat

    Cons

    Mainly education-related cases.... rather difficult to get exposure to other sectors (for Singapore and Mumbai office). Singapore office tends to be more boring in terms of culture, but its just newly set up, so might get better over time

    Advice to Management

    Better work-life balance please! gender diversity also needs to be improved. More two-way feedback channels would be useful too for senior management to get a better sense of the ground sentiment

    I worked at EY-Parthenon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Industry leading compensation- both base pay and benefits
    - Entrepreneurial environment
    - Good reputation at B-schools
    - Fantastic travel opportunity (for single employees)
    - Great office culture

    Cons

    - ridiculous work-life balance
    - lack of diversity in industry exposure (mostly education)
    - Far too much travel (for married employees)
    - Now, the association with EY!
    - Terrible review process

    Advice to Management

    The management must really pay attention to employee fatigue. Firm needs to take on work based on ACTUAL available capacity instead of throwing consultants on multiple projects at once
