5. Concerns of Ernst & Young Consulting? : Strong competition and a slowing economy could pose challenges for Ernst & Young as it seeks to create a distinct consulting brand as part of its planned business spin-off, The Wall Street Journal reported. Yet Ernst & Young operates a Top 250 MSSP and a Top 250 Public Cloud MSP – so it’s safe to say that there is a critical mass of talent in the organization. To note: PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), KPMG and Deloitte – the other big four accounting firms – have said they have no plans to carry out a similar spin-off, The Journal reported.
