If you're interested in a career in finance or in any sort of regulation-driven, compliance-oriented work, run to EY and beat down the door until they let you in; incredible brand and network in that space. Tough to beat our Risk practice and our Transaction practice has a solid niche in the market, even if their work and sub-culture are a bit cold/task oriented that feels, well, transactional.
If you're skilled in one of EY's prioritized growth areas (Purpose, Digital/Innovation, Strategy, SAP) - give EY serious consideration. You'll likely need to tolerate a few bumps in the road early on, and an anti-intellectual culture that's off-the-charts on any risk aversion scale (from CEO to Manager levels at least). HOWEVER - if you actually know your stuff and are capable of delivering on what you promise, you will make it through the other side and find a sea of opportunity with a remarkable amount of support and limited (real) competition for resources. Also true to a lesser extent for the Supply Chain and Customer competencies, and prioritized sectors (Life Sci, Healthcare, CPG, etc.)
Great culture, great people, strong growth
Firm culture, partner group, flexibility, experiences, teaming
Really just that there never really is a down time where you can catch your breath. The work doesn't ever really stop (which isn't really a bad thing - you have to pay the bills).
