Yes, we know this is early but the natives are getting restless, as evidenced by our inboxes:
EY compensation and promotion talks have began in the NY area
We reached out to a friend of GC currently sentenced to 15 to life at EY in NY who could not confirm this:
I can’t confirm what you’ve been hearing. I haven’t heard anything in terms of comp discussions since our year end reviews are still being finalized and won’t be done for another 2-3 weeks at the earliest. Last year, the discussions were held mid-late august so even if they were early, I doubt it would be starting until late july at the earliest. Feel free to ask anything else. I’m bored as fuck right now.
This comment is in line with past years, with last year's EY compensation discussion heating up mid-August.
However, we hear that ratings and promotions are out there, it's just a matter of getting them to the anxious masses:
Should a compensation and promotion thread be started for EY? I hear some people in the firm have already received their promotion news (a bit early). Ratings and promos have already been released in TFZ to the counselors (since a couple of days ago). Should be interesting to see what people have to say.
EY has released ratings and promotion in the TFZ system since 6/27/2014. Counselors can release the information from now until August 8th. We should start a thread for this.
Alright, alright, let no one say we don't deliver on requests. You asked for it, you get it. We'll leave this conversation open through summer so you will have to dig for it later, blame your eager beaver colleagues for demanding a thread RIGHT NAO.
Note: EY saw the largest year-over-year increase in revenues of the Big 4 (nearly 11%) however they are still lingering around at the 3rd spot on the Accounting Today Top 100, coming in a few million short after Deloitte and PwC.
