Vault Verdict

As a member of the Big 4 professional services firms, EY's reputation is almost untouchable--there's a reason that the firm has 212,000 employees worldwide, and pulled in $29.6 billion in FY 2016. As such, there's little reason to doubt that it will continue to win and deliver projects for clients for the foreseeable future. When it comes to its position within the consulting industry itself, however, industry insiders point to a reliance on transactional work, rather than the cutting-edge strategic work that attracts many to the profession. Bottom line: if you're looking for stability with the added bonus of a gold-plated name on your resume, EY is a good choice.
