Former Employee - Audit Staff in Boston, MA

I worked at EY full-time for less than a year

Pros

There are no pros. People are backstabbing and manipulative, and the hours are horrific.

Cons

Everything about it. If you go to a job here, kiss your personal life goodbye. Managers are horrendously inept, and are quick to throw anybody under the bus when they screw up. If a Senior or Manager feels threatened by you, expect a crappy review because they will do anything to impede your advancement.

Busy season averaged 85 hours a week, and I was disciplined for leaving at 2 AM, which apparently was "too early" to go home. I was also disciplined for taking a lunch break. I'm glad I worked here for the sole reason of knowing what kind of environment I don't want to work in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the review process. Allow staff to review their superiors.

    I worked at EY as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay is awesome and you have plenty of opportunities for promotion. Management doesn't really nag you or stand over your shoulder.

    Cons

    Software department is clueless and the management is unprofessional and pretty shady.
    They will fire you on the spot if you give them a two weeks notice and then stiff you on your last paycheck. They can't keep software developers because the working environment is focused on business majors and accountants, not computer programmers. Not very many promotions in the software field, you will have to be a business person to get anywhere.
