A former colleague of mine summed it up with the following catchphrase: “What we sell is the space between these two ears.” This bit of Yoda-like wisdom was followed by a slowly pointed finger to my forehead.
At its simplest form, “professional services” is an industry where firms like Ernst & Young provide clients with the right subject matter experience via resources at the right time and place and, of course, at the right price.
The first division we’ll take a look at is “Assurance”. Assurance mainly encompasses classic audit services, including financial audits.
Assurance is a very mature service offering with very well structured methodologies and reoccurring annual audit business; it holds the top spot in terms of the most annual revenue generated for the firm.
You might be thinking at this point, “Which group is right for me, Assurance or Advisory?
” Well, they are significantly different from one another.
Ernst & Young, like any of the Big Four or large professional services firm, is composed of a series of “practices” or unique groups of resources, ranging from a handful of people to several hundred, which tout similar subject matter experience.
These practices are then lumped into larger organizational categories that support the firm’s overarching strategic vision. Here’s an example which should clarify things for you a bit: I’m part of the “Program Advisory Services” practice, or PAS for short.
It may not look pretty on an organizational chart (that is if you could even find one) but I assure you there is critical logic behind this labyrinth of practices.
Advisory, on the other hand, is more similar to a classic management consulting mold.
It is not nearly as consistent as Assurance work, but it is one of the fastest growing offerings within the firm.
