EY has a horrible Time & Expense system (Mercury) that is literally crippling the company. Do other firms have similar horror stories? I can’t imagine they are as bad, but please share your story!

we have SAP time system. Good experience, however I feel there is customized portal sitting on top. SAP UI can’t be that user friendly .

At Deloitte T&E is a SAP platform. Our sales opportunities are tracked in Mercury, a Salesforce platform which are somewhat linked. There is an initiative to link these to our marketing platform, Eloqua, an Oracle platform.

Moved from SAP to Chrome River. Looks okay I think. My admin does all the expenses and hasn’t really complained so it must be okay.

You don‘t have admins for associates at McKinsey?

OP, that TE system is bad but it really isn't crippling the company. That's really an over zealous statement. Occasionally there are issues, as there are with other applications in all firms. Don't know your background but these systems are pretty complicated, have global users and have really complicated back end routines. Yes, there are better products in the market which is why EY will move to those in the near future

What fund would you recommend to invest Roth IRA money in? I had started an account with EJ when I was straight out of college and didn't know much about investing.

So, looking for something with good returns but more cost-effective.

Our reentry has been delayed and I am working with HR to try and stay home while students aren’t there but it looks like I’m going to have to take some Parental Leave once students do return because there is not a plan otherwise.
