    Pros

    Their Vision 2020 is to become a $50 billion dollar company by 2020. This translates into the IT world as more jobs, cutting-edge hardware, and tons of interesting projects to work on. Although reorganizations are common, their end goal is to build a better company and better teams. Management is very accommodating with any personal requests and approachable. Fantastic work environment that makes you happy to go to work.

    Cons

    I honestly have few cons. The only one really being that having company paid benefits would be great. But due to the amount of time and money invested in employees it is a minor concern.

    Pros

    Integrity, versatility, flexibility. Human cap is a highly valued asset. Numerous career paths available.

    Cons

    Extremely fast paced. Strategy for the next 10 years mandates a tremendous degree of change and heavy globalization, so major challenge for leaders is to identify and address teams reaching a "change saturation" point and resulting human cap loss

    I worked at EY as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most people were very nice and willing to help you. They are very community service geared. The work culture wasn't so pressurized as I've seen in other firms. You are also encouraged to follow your interests, and are able to voice your interest in another service line and most likely will be able to switch.

    Cons

    At a big firm such as this one, sometimes work goes unnoticed.

    Pros

    Love the international collaboration with our affiliate offices around the world. produce world shaping support to global organizations. The pay is awesome

    Cons

    People like all other places, some of them can be challenging to work with. Especially in this Type A environment where everyone is trying to make Partner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are great initiatives for diversity and inclusiveness but much much more needs to be done to stamp out the silos and favoritism that goes on. This is a challenge for any organization so I understand it's something that can't be completely fixed but it is something that still needs attention to from the leadership

    Pros

    What I like most about EY are the work flexibility program for employees, the dedicated commitment to help in local communities around the world, the amount of available learning courses, & the employee's mentorship/counseling program.

    Cons

    One challenge I had was working with season employees not being open to change & not embracing new hires. During the first 3-4 months, I found myself trying to constantly prove myself & skills to individuals which I wasn't reporting to, but worked on same projects; always questioning every aspect of my skill even before the project started. Fortunately, I have a good mgmt team that had confidence in my proven skill sets and supported me while assigned to the project.
