    It was afunandrelaxed experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    there was flexibility of how you want to do work. I was allowed to finish my assignment from home and had to just meet the guidelines and dates. Even though there was a lot of work it was a good experience

    Cons

    I think the work life balance could easily be an issue,but since i was just an intern i do not think i could give a lot of cons.
