magnifying glass

I heard that EY were trying to make a serious move back into consulting away from the accenture models etc - i was looking at them as a potential place to apply but the forum seems very negative - is anyone actually working there and can they shed any light on this somewhat strange entity that is EY BAS??

Also any comments on the leadership ... whats the pay like???

I work in BAS. The leadership, nonewithstanding what is said on this forum - is very good. The negative comments, you see, are all based on rumors / fictious information - for BAS have not yet had thier official launch yet and we have released very little public information. The place is very vibrant and has a start up feel, people are friendly and very relaxed.

Salary depends on level. How much experience do you have / where from / academics etc - for me to give you a better idea.

Be wary of the spin from within BAS.

They are being led by ex-Accenture and IBM partners, who have a reputation for bodyshopping staff into long term public sector jobs. If you want to work for the DWP in St Helens for the next 3 years, then sign on the dotted line.

As for clients, its interesting to see that none of the BAS spinners will come out and name any.

I understood from a previous posting that most of the work would be London based.

Which is true?

Does anyone know ?

Ah ha - well the truth is out there - indeed travel is mainly to Europe - though SA too so i have heard from a most reliable chat show host and most work is london SE based. As for god and jesus well they both had a Pickense and they were called gucci and dolce

#11 What is wrong with you ?

What is it with all these E&Y spindoctors? Do they have nothing better to do all day in their funny shaped office block in More Place, than squabble on websites?

It sounds like a really strange place to work.

No one seems to be able to get a straight answer to even the simplest of questions from them, such as “In which geographical regions am I likely to work?”.

Add that to the constant barrage of calls that my colleagues and I, are getting from so called “headhunters” inviting us to apply to E&Y, and it doesn’t really inspire confidence that they are targeting people well.

Overall, I couldn’t say much for the clarity of direction for this new group.

Simple answer - nobody knows where you're likely to work because there isn't any client work yet. Naturally London is the obvious place to start with business development which is why it's all been based there. But it's meant to be cross-sold as a UK-wide offering, so you could work with clients of other offices too.

For the previous poster, only salary info I have is for graduate entry - £23,400 p.a.

A positive reply at last

Could you expand on your experience please? I'm interested in applying to BAS and have 6 years' background in IT strategy for a large, full services consultancy. Does this fit in with the work BAS are looking to take on?

Beg to differ, but that's not what the contracts say
