Pros

Experience, working with very intelligent and motivated individuals

Cons

The hours, and the fact that it's hard to stand out amongst such strong peers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be as honest as possible with us and work on implenting the people first culture. We work very hard for you and don't get paid very much compared to other IT jobs, and our 401k plan is pretty horrible. I would like to feel more appreciated and valued. I don't feel like people first is totally honest.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work the EY are the people and the clients. Because you work for such a large firm, you have a chance to work on some of the biggest and best clients in the industry. The other great part about the firm is the people. The people at EY are some of the most dynamic and interesting individuals that I have worked with. In a lot of cases, individuals will have a wide array of backgrounds that bring different perspectives to the workplace. In a lot of firms such as EY, employees with just have accounting or finance degrees. I have noticed that the dynamic nature of EY is fed by the people with many different backgrounds.

    Cons

    The one major downside to working at EY is that due to the teaming aspect of the culture, it can be hard to stand out if you are at a lower level. I think that teaming is extremely important in the advisory field, however there are instances where it can hold back progress career-wise. Also, there is a lack of streamlined and relevant communications from leadership. Due to the fact that EY is a private partnership, there is little firm-wide discussion about financial results or general changes to leadership mentality. I think that this will be changing as the calls for transparency get louder and louder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would tell senior management that they need to review the way the promotions are done within the firm.

    Pros

    Flexibility, benefits, and ability to advance.

    Cons

    Demanding hours; unpredictability of schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use "People First" as more than just a way to recruit young staff; actually practice "People First" on a day-to-day basis.
