    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at EY are the caliber of people you work with, the training and the experience you receive early on.

    Cons

    The work can be very monotonous at times; it is sometimes hard to get on the clients you want to serve on; the politics can be tiring at times.

    Current Employee - Audit Senior in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at EY full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In this firm, you will be challenged on a daily basis, forced in a good way to learn organization and leadership skills, and truly understand the meaning of team. You will have good days and bad, but you look back and will recognize how far you have come and how much you have learned. It does set you up to go into industry with good amount of knowledge and skills.

    Cons

    The career is true to the stereotype, you work a lot, and there is no such thing as work/life balance. Your hard work will be recognized, but you have to make it known to executives around you when you have had accomplishments or have gone above and beyond. Depending on your region, raises vary being good or very poor.
