    I have been working at EY

    Pros

    I have been at EY ffor 4 years and loved my independence and flexibility so far. I also relaly like my teams and people I work with. I do believe that Ey is better Public than others though. My advise, start in Public, the resume with public names works the best!

    Cons

    The hardest thing so far has been my work life balance, it is always too much work and responsibilities. The expectations are always high and we are always expected to be logged in 24/7, very hard to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to implement less weekend culture and make sure people do not get burned out. Good people always get punished, because we always get more and more work and never get breaks.
