    A great, career-building opportunity.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people I work with are great. The benefits are good. The experiences are career building. It's a great place to meet many different people at a variety of clients in various industries. The leadership seems to care about your career development, whether it includes staying at EY forever or leaving after a few years.

    ConsWorking with scheduling can be a pain. It can be difficult to get on the projects you want, but you just need to work hard to network with the right people and push really hard for what you want. There is a lot of work. It's hard to take a real vacation where you can leave work behind completely.
