Can someone tell me about the “Business Analyst” role at EY? Where I come from analysts and consultants are different animals. I’m a consultant now, but was actively recruited for a “position” at EY. After the initial convo I received an invitation for a formal interview for a business analyst position… Which in my mind is a step down from consultant. Any insight? Also, what’s the culture over there? Weekly hours? Management? It’s flattering that one of the Big4 is after me but is it worth it..

It’s not flattering. We just need schmucks. Don’t be a schmuck.

I’m pretty sure it’s just the job function. I know on LinkedIn, they post business analyst but it can still be a manager or senior manager level role
