ProsAmazing culture, people want you to develop, and some-what flexible with providing work-life balance.

Audit Intern at EY

Audit Intern (Current Employee)
Nashville, TN

I have been working at EY full-time for less than a year

ProsI absolutely loved working at EY. I got to experience 5 clients, all in different industries. I experienced what a typical workload would be for a Staff I, and I feel that I was able to get a realistic picture of what a career at EY was like. I was given the opportunity to travel (went to Salt Lake City) for a client. Understanding of personal things in your life and willing to adapt to you as an individual. We had several times throughout the internship we came together as an intern class, and did a fun intern event. Also the International Intern Leadership Conference at the conclusion of the internship is a blast.

ConsAt times it seems as though there was a lack of communication. Also, the scheduler expects you to be willing to travel at the drop of a hat.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing!
