EY Graduate role

 
#1 EY Graduate role

Hi,

I have just been offered a role as a graduate in EYs London office in performance improvement. I would be grateful for your opinions on the quality of the post in the long term for options. Also what is the general perception of EY in the MC industry.

Cheers

Forget the cynicism you're bound to get.

EY is a fabulous first entry on your CV. Get in there, work like a dog during rotation, get noticed, get wanted.

You'll never look back.

I second Shoe Polisher - in fact don't come on here until you have finished the grad scheme as you will mistake the tribalism among MCs for genuine insights (and yes you'll get both on here, but need to separate one from the other).

EY is a superb firm with which to start your career. Well done.

EY is an incredibly sh*tty place to work, but so is Deloitte, KPMG, PwC, Accenture, CapGemini, etc. so you're in good company. Best of luck anyway, and try not to drink too much Kool-Aid in the first few months or you'll find it repeats on you.

StJames to PM (#4)

The roles are quite difficult to get, so congratulations first off. For the August 2011 intake there were something like 70+ applicants per place, so quite heavy competition.

PI is the flagship of the advisory arm (ITRA, Risk, and FS lag behind a bit) and is doing quite well. I have gone through the graduate programme and there are some great things and some things that are lacking, as any other, but I could not ask for a better group in terms of classmates (Main universities represented at Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, and Warwick). Are group gets on extremely well and with only a few exceptions all work hard and play hard as cliche as it sounds.

In terms of our competitors I'd say ahead of KPMG, on par with PwC (but we pay better), and a behind Deloitte as they never got rid of their consulting arm as the other Big Four firms did.
