    Accounting focus pervades entire company. I worked in advisory services, risk. I felt deceived regarding my work

    I worked at EY part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They are nice and the work isn't too hard. They took it easy

    Cons

    The work is very repetitive

    Advice to Management

    Let employees be more creative. And Orlando is a waste

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job security, good reputation in the accounting field, smart people in your age group and Company perks such as getting VIP access to sporting events if you are on right teams.

    Cons

    Long hours, no predictability with your schedule, no work-life balance, and boring

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and stop working people to death until they quit. More people suffer because their team members quit!

    Great place to begin a career, however, if it's not for you, get out.

    Pros

    They treat you very kindly. Shower you with gifts. My boss took me out to dinner. He tried to get fresh.

    Cons

    Very picky about personal attire. Management wants you to dress very professionally each and every day. Ladies need to have skirts. Men need jacket and tie.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up lighten up, it's artsy. You need to put in a clothing allowance if you insist people dress in a specific way.

    I worked at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The firm supports your professional development, the firm is structured and organized and highly professional, people are nice for the most part.

    Cons

    Salaries are very low and salary increases are not in line with your performance reviews; almost impossible to negotiate a salary increase; you feel like you're just a number there and nobody cares if you stay or leave.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Lots of opportunity for firm-sponsored activities outside of your normal job duties, including community service events - If you're not client-serving, work life balance is good - Everyone I've met is super nice :)

    Cons

    - If you're not client-serving, career advancement seems more nebulous - Technology (including basically everything on / about our laptops...) at the firm could use some improvement...

    Pros

    Opportunities abound for those diligent enough to seek them out.

    Hours can be long, especially during busy seasons.

    Pros

    A very young consulting practice which allows for a lot of growth opportunities. The senior leadership also encourages all employees to participate and share ideas.

    Cons

    If you don't like travel, then EY is not for you. Traveling employees do not have an office, but utilize hotel offices. This can sometimes be challenging for getting to know people in the office.
