    I have been working at EY full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Variety of experiences, the people, supportive managers, great team environment, automatic credibility, generous vacation time as a new Staff, opportunites to telecommute part of the time and overall flexibility.

    Cons

    Long hours at times, some policies are old fashioned, no gym membership, connection between national management and local city managment is not always apparent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to have a little more transparency for internal initiatives

    I have been working at EY full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will come across some very nice people, very knowledgable... but such are very few!!

    Cons

    Not a very good place for external hires, not a place for hard working and intelligent people. They are treated as aliens, People stories are created and external hires are tortured by Senior Leadership and people who have spent years at EY but never spent time working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont preach about inclusiveness... promote it in its true sense! Also, review some of unethical practices that exist in your smaller offices especially around faking expenses.

    Pros

    Find the resources and people extremely helpful. Provides great opportunities for personal and professional growth. Great experience through every engagement.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at EY

    Pros

    Pay was good, employee morale was important, organized associate appreciation events. Cared about work life balance issues, offered flexible hours and no set number of sick days.

    Cons

    When the office moved locations, our parking options were limited, non senior management had to pay for parking, $70 a month. That sucked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No serious feedback, it was ok to work there. Due to its size, after several years, still didn't know 90% of the people that work the office. Even with appreciation events, most people stayed with the people they worked with everyday in their own department.
