Firsthand Findings

If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like to work for a strategy shop with genuine scale behind it, then EY-Parthenon is a firm that likely has some answers for you. A couple of clues right off the top: commitment to providing strong work-life balance is evident (something that can’t be said for a lot of firms at the top of the consulting field), while training and development are prioritized in ways that they simply can’t be at firms with fewer resources to draw upon.

On the flip side, there’s the fact firms of this scale are difficult to stand out in, making choice assignments harder to come by, and meaning that career progression is likely to be more linear than stratospheric.

However, if you can embrace the unique mix of boutique firm ...

Employee Reviews


  • “EYP feels like a boutique within a larger professional services firm. Our teams are friendly, and we care a lot about DEI (and not just doing lip-service to it).”
  • “EYP is growing rapidly, giving the chance for junior and senior team members alike to make their mark on the firm and its future. I feel that the opportunity to contribute to its growth, combined with how friendly everyone is and our commitment to DEI, sets apart from the other firms I received offers from in undergrad.”
  • “EY-Parthenon has experienced a lot of growth in the past few years. The downside is that sometimes, things look a little messy, because we are often driving the car while building it. The upside is that as part of a growing team, there is a lot of opportunity for involvement and personal growth at junior levels that you will not see at other, well-oiled machine firms. It creates somewhat of a build-your-own adventure experience that appeals to self-starter and entrepreneurial-minded individuals.”
  • “The senior executives at the firm realize we have lives outside of work, and they are constantly encouraging us to take time off to rest and reenergize. This action is a priority of the senior leadership, and I have not seen this at other firms' where my friends and family currently work.”
  • “We are a full-service Strategy and M&A consultancy that brings a unique combination of strategy and execution that is an attractive value proposition to clients. We leverage the broader strengths of EY as a firm (F&A, Tax, Technology, People Experience) to enhance our ability to serve clients throughout the entire deal lifecycle. We have a Smart, Nice, and Driven culture that resonates well with motivated folks who are passionate about making an impact.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “EY Parthenon's motto of ‘Smart, Nice & Driven’ is part of the DNA of the firm. Anyone at any consulting firm is smart and driven. It's really the NICE that makes EY Parthenon different. If we're going to work as hard as we do, it's nice that we can do it with people we like!”
  • “For both campus hire and experienced hires, the interview process is streamlined and standardized. There is no ‘ideal’ candidate, we have been hiring individuals from a variety of backgrounds. Our candidates are smart, nice and driven - we value a collegial mindset above all, and the path to promotion and growth is only achieved by empowering and collaborating with our peers.”
  • “Our interview process consists of a resume review followed by two rounds of case, behavioral, and group interviews. The group interview provides us with an opportunity to really gauge the candidates' skillset in a team environment, as collaboration is key to our culture. We're seeking candidates with an entrepreneurial drive, a constant curiosity within a diverse set of spaces, and a demonstrated history of quantitative rigor in complex data environments.”
  • “The firm hires primarily from college and business school campuses. Resumes are reviewed and ranked on specific criteria, and after first round interviews are held (virtually this year), candidates are invited to a super day. Notes on candidates are recorded directly after interviews and are submitted to a committee which evaluates all candidates. I believe EY-P looks for sharp, ambitious, and kind candidates that prove their critical thinking skills and you would also want to spend a whole day in an office with.”
  • “There is a formal application and review process that attempts to ensure a level playing field and fair process. Different types of people for different roles, but common threads include problems solving skills, technical proficiency, and strong people and communications skills.”
