I think you would be mad to join any part of BAS now. You are very unlikely to have a job by the end of the year. Try Deloittes instead – much more respected

The Supply Chain team (and BAS in general) is doing very well, with a strong pipeline and plenty of work to keep people busy.

There are other parts of the firm which are more quiet and where you might find yourself out of a job in a year, but BAS is not one of them.

I know most of the people on the Supply Chain team -- they are a good bunch and they have some interesting projects. Good luck.

A- you are bonkers to be applying to E&Y BAS, get a job somewhere else- in the state it's in, it probably won't even exist by this time next year...

Seems to be a lot of E&Y bashing at the moment, is any of this based on any real insight / facts?

EYer to a (#9)

We haven't had a good round of EY bashing for a while, so it seems only fair that we have one now. For the life of me, I cannot understand why EY keeps coming in for such criticism from those who have obviously never worked for EY, but it does.

There are definitely a few genuine posters on here with insights and legitimate gripes about life at EY -- same as at any firm. But the number of people who hold strong opinions about EY but have no vested interest is what really confuses me. Lots of sour grapes who didn't make it through interview, perhaps?

To answer the question about the Supply Chain interview, it is reasonably straight-forward. Your interview generally lasts about 2 hours and is split roughly between a walk through your CV and background, a discussion about what EY are all about and how you might fit in, and a case study.

The case study is not rocket science. It will outline a case (duh!) of a hypothetical client. Based on your experience and insights, you will be expected to talk about various elements of the case and make some recommendations.

Generally people fall into two camps: those who can handle the case study easily with minimal preparation (because they are well qualified and understand their subject area) or those that struggle because they lack a consulting background or deep enough subject matter expertise. It is no surprise that candidates generally fall into one of these two camps: the purposes of the case study is to separate those who know their stuff from those who don't!

So my advice is this: if you know your subject matter well, and you understand the consulting relationship with a client, you probably have very little revision to do. Most important is to think about how you structure and present your response -- clear, concise thoughts; insights backed up by either facts or clearly stated assumptions; etc.

It's okay to have an opinion as long as you can justify it; similarly, it is fine to make assumptions as long as you can justify them.

Good luck.

Our emphasis on inclusiveness matters more than ever today.

But what about including those who are not good enough to make it through the interview?

Definitely look into the Supply Chain team at Deloitte; much more respected and stable than E&Y. They are still recruiting from what I hear

a to EYer (#12)

Dear EYer,

Thanks for clear explanation and guidance about cases and EY. It is helpful.

I am familiar with case interviews. However, one specific point which I wanted to check -- whether EY cases tend to be bit more specific to the practise that I will be interviewing for i.e supply chain in this case. Or these could be fairly broad ended cases for example, business strategy to operations to supply chain etc.

I have had (successful) experience of interviewing with Accenture, I could get through their cases quite easily but on the other hand McK cases tended to little bit challenging where I felt handicap due to lack of preparation.

Where do you think EY falls along above points.

Would you have some advise on this as well?

If possible, based upon your experience, would you be able to throw a case example that EY might use in supply chain type interviews?

Thanks so much.

EYer to a (#20)

The EY case studies are specific to business line, so if you are interviewing for a supply chain role, expect to be presented with a case study that addresses supply chain issues.

The case studies are generally pretty exaggerated -- there will be loads of client issues for you to talk about. Imagine going into a company that was in the lowest quartile of their industry, and that's about the level you can expect in the case study.

Dear EYer,

Thanks for your inputs.

Also so that I understand vey well -- it means that E&Y case studies are unlike to what one encounters in typical case interviews with MBBB type firms? In the sense of subject specific expertise that is required to tacke the cases?

Finally, if possible, would you be able to share a typical example in brief from your experience - what could be a supply chain related example of such a case study? Any sources you can suggest me to prepare for such typye of cases?

Thanks
