Current Employee - Tax Senior in Irvine, CA
Current Employee - Tax Senior in Irvine, CA

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

Pros

They are pretty big on flexibility in my office, taking time off is not too painful when it is no busy season. There is plenty of opportunity to grow as much as you want as fast as you want.

Cons

Busy seasons are brutal. The overall environment is a little too "sink-or-swim" which quickly weeds out those who cannot handle the job. However, I have found that the longer you are with the Firm, the easier it gets, and the opportunities are there if you want them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The culture, from my experience, is too "corporate" (i.e. cut-throat). I would like to see a move towards more of a teaming culture.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at EY as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of great benefits and the pay is good. Or at least the pay is good until you realize how many hours you're working. You have great skills transferability. Work here for one year, take advantage of the benefits, and leave.

    Cons

    You end up working long hours. Especially if you travel, you will only get one day off a week. They tell you that you'll only work Monday through Thursday, but to keep up appearances to the client, you end up staying until at least 5pm on Friday. This place is a pyramid scheme and the partners are out of touch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit using smoke and mirrors about how great it is here and actually talk to your staff.
