    Pros

    You can make your career what you want at EY, there are opportunities to grow that a strong performer can create through proper management of their career and by expressing their objectives. EY does an excellent job in assisting growth for employees.

    Cons

    The company is full of strong performers and you will need to be attentive to your career and always working to grow. The environment is supportive but also competitive, be ready to work for your success.

    I have been working at EY

    Pros

    Everyone is always willing to help, and you get to travel as much/little as you would like. Amazing benefits as well.

    Cons

    No overtime pay, and hours can get very hectic sometimes. Also, the work may seem tedious at times, but it does give you a good foundation for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When time allows, try to get to know the younger Staff-level people so that they are more comfortable in the office.
