    I have been working at EY as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing pay
    Great rewards program
    Cool location of the NYC office
    Friendly and helpful people
    Managers are highly resourceful and always willing to assist

    Cons

    Not many I can think of. Sure travel can be tough sometimes but if you like it then this can easily become a pro.
    I do not think I would change anything about this firm. They are headed in the right direction and now is the best time to be part of EY

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe increase the vacation days as 3 weeks seems little for the amount of hours all the employees put in throughout the year.
    Training program is extensive yet more training will never hurt.
    Overall management is doing an amazing job but little tweaks here and there cannot hurt and will decrease turnover in the long run.

    Pros

    You get to explore the opportunities that you want to explore and you learn a ton working for them, which is a good time.

    Cons

    The hours are very long, however they are always very rewarding and you grow from these long days. You also need to watch your weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management of EY could benefit from interacting more with the lower levels, however they already do a great job of doing this.

    Has an old boys club feel to it. You really need to fit into the "culture" to be able to shine.

  8. Great place to work. It's a great career start, since many mid-size companies prefer Big-4 experience.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career, opportunities are plentiful.

    Cons

    Long hours, compensation at this level is less than what you could get out in industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to work your people as hard as you do, you should take care of them with premium compensation and benefits.

    Current Employee - IT Risk and Assurance Senior

    I have been working at EY full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Firm has great opportunities, variety in the work it does and an increasingly optimistic brand within the market. Market leader in several areas makes it a unique place to work. If you network well and put in the long hours that come with it, you will go places. Leadership is people focussed and want to do the right thing. Travel benefits, clients are all great.

    Cons

    Work-life balance, whoever speaks the loudest about accomplishments gets heard in front of management, over-emphasis on utilization makes having a work-life balance hard and compensation is rather paltry.
