In 2017 EY promoted 669 individuals to partner. This is down when compared to 2016 where EY promoted 714 people globally. That is a decrease of 45 partners. That’s a pretty significant drop.

109 partners in the class were women and 36% of the partners are from emerging markets. Last year Ey promoted 208 women to partner which was 29% of that class. This is trending in a good direction for Ernst and young.

Billing at the big 4 can be a headache. Billing is painful for multiple reasons. 

One of those reasons is because of the bureaucracy at the big 4 which we covered on a previous podcast.

The other reasons that big 4 billing is such a pain is because of 

  • artificially high rates
  • write-offs
  • rates that are charged to clients are different than rates in the code
  • fake invoices

All of this could be solved if the big 4 just developed their culture in a better way and actually followed their core values that we also mentioned in a previous podcast.

In this episode we will discuss whether it is possible to switch from accounting to finance or consulting. 

Many people in public accounting want to transition into a finance or consulting role. Why is this? You might have your own reasons, but let’s explore why other people might want to transition into a finance or consulting role.

The reason that people want to go into finance and consulting is because they are seen as more front office roles versus accounting. Accounting is seen as a back office role and has a negative connotation. If you work in the big 4 and especially in assurance, your clients typically dread seeing you. There is the typical stereotype of the client hating their auditors.
