Fantastic opportunities are out there, but Talent team is a burden

4.0 of 5 stars

November 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Fascinating project opportunities
Staffing model (double staffing) + short engagements = rapid opportunities to develop
Manage people and clients early
Heavy utilization of primary research a great learning opportunity
Expectation to get involved with firm buildling

Downers

Inefficient staffing mechanisms in place; pipeline is moving too quickly to take individual preferences or experiences into much account, leading to burnout
Compensation does not adequately award highest performers, leading to loss of highest performers over time
Talent Team (especially Recruiting) is very integrated with EY and therefore moves slowly / doesn't care about people

Advice to Candidates

Recruiting is strongly oriented around the "Smart. Nice. Driven." motto
Junior interviewers have the most influence; it's not about impressing Partners

Better firms out there

exciting clients, and very smart people at partner level. staffing managers are nice, and take care of your work life balance

Downers

associates ~ consultants can be competitive within the company. due diligence after another. mentorship is pretty limited and you have to seek it out.

Advice to Candidates

Interview process focuses a lot on its "nice smart driven" motto

At Parthenon-EY, I've had the opportunity to create relationships with really great people and work through complex and interesting buisness problems

Advice to Candidates

EY-Parthenon is very unique in the small-firm feel of a boutique consulting firm in the global firm infrastructure of EY. The people are great, and the opportunities are great and expanding.

Uppers

Company culture and growth opportunities

Downers

Demanding schedule

Advice to Candidates

EY-Parthenon is a great place to build strategy consulting experience quickly. Engagement cycles are typically short (3-5 weeks), and a 2 case model means often being staffed on 2 projects at once. This means more projects in a short period of time in multiple industries.
