In light of all discussions on FB, it seems to me that individuals at our firm have been removed out of EY beyond PIP related issues.
To help the community brace itself, please provide facts on your Utilization, level, leads, YoE at EY, and network.

I’m an IT consultant and we just discussed an RFP with a manager. They wanted to use resources overseas/offshore for some capabilities and then one of the other managers said something on the lines of “or we could do pretty much everything offshore and do PMO here it would save the budget”. I’m sick of this approach. How am I supposed to get utilization and learn actual stuff outside of PMO if they always end up using offshore resources? It’s not fair for the new generation of consultants

Had dinner with a friend last night and they told me someone who is a Tax Manager in BTS at KPMG was leaving to take a job as a tax Director in industry making $175k + stock options. Not in a major city. Does that sound accurate on both (1) big 4 manager to tax director and (2) tax director in a smaller city making $175k + stock options and benefits? Managers in our office in BTS probably make $110k and that’s on the high end.
