Also, EY got rid of public color printers for cost reasons, we got rid of them so any client facing deliverables could be printed using our in-house creative and printing services to ensure consistency and brand standards. We ran into a shitstorm five or so years ago with every practice using their own templates and standards.

Travelled a lot for both internal and client work and was never suggested to take Spirit or anything low cost. You can book any flight, hotel or rental car that is EY preferred and within policy. And EY Preferred includes all the major domestic and international flights, famous hotel chains etc --- and in general I have seen that it excludes the low cost airlines and not so popular hotels. Happy to be a part of EY

@Deloitte 1- "You're firm" guessing you weren't an English major, chief! I'd actually think of it differently, maybe like the firm is being smarter about how money is spent ie not on unnecessary shit like color printers when it's not even a client site.

Correction: EY does have color printers, but only if u go through the business support group to do ur printing. The public printers are not colored

I always thought it was strange that agencies rarely let candidates know the client until they are towards the end of the process.

Do we think agencies will have to be more transparent and let candidates ultimately chose the client?
