EY – Why Work For Us?

At EY, we are committed to building a better working world — with increased trust and confidence in business, sustainable growth, development of talent in all its forms, and greater collaboration.

We want to build a better working world through our own actions and by engaging with like-minded organizations and individuals. This is our purpose — and why we exist as an organization.

Running through our organization is a strong sense of obligation to serve a number of different stakeholders who count on us to deliver quality and excellence in everything we do.

We want to use our global reach and scale to convene the conversation about the challenges facing economies and the capital markets.

When business works better, the world works better.

Learn more about our commitment to building a better working world.

Who we are

People who demonstrate integrity, respect, and teaming.

People with energy, enthusiasm, and the courage to lead.

People who build relationships based on doing the right thing.

Our values define who we are. They are the fundamental beliefs of our global organization. They guide our actions and behavior. They influence the way we work with each other – and the way we serve our clients and engage with our communities.

Every day, each one of us makes choices and decisions that directly affect the way we experience each other and the way our clients and wider communities experience us. Our values give us confidence that we are using the same principles to help us make these decisions throughout our global organization.

Every year, we celebrate the way we live our values through our Chairman’s Values Award. Through this award, we give our people the opportunity to recognize their colleagues who are bringing our values to life every day. This is an important way in which we are building our shared culture, founded on our strong commitment to our values.

Our global structure

Our structure is composed of the Executive and Regions. The Executive includes our global leadership, governance bodies and our four geographic Areas. Working together they oversee our global strategy, brand, business planning, investments and priorities.

Our 28 Regions are grouped under four geographic Areas: Americas; Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA); Asia-Pacific; and Japan.

This structure is streamlined allowing us to make decisions quickly, execute our strategy and provide exceptional client service wherever in the world our clients do business.

Our global structure means we can respond faster than our competitors. We can access the right people and assemble high-performing teams to deliver exceptional client service worldwide.

So we’re not merely a loose collection of national practices – we are a global organization, unified in our approach.

Learn more about our leaders.

Entrepreneurs make a difference. They not only have great ideas, but also the drive to make them a reality. They use their fresh thinking and hard work to create positive social change – bringing new concepts and products to market, and creating jobs and wealth.

We have long recognized the potential of entrepreneurs. Over the past three decades, we have been working with entrepreneurs, adapting our experience, industry capabilities and resources to work for entrepreneurial, fast-growth companies. We work with a range of businesses, from those receiving their first venture funding through to large mid-cap companies, whose value may be measured in billions of dollars.

Our commitment to entrepreneurial companies, in both emerging and developed economies around the world, helps ensure that we’re working with more of tomorrow’s global leaders, today.

Globalization and underlying demographic trends mean that competition to employ outstanding people is evolving rapidly. Successful companies are adapting to this by building internationally experienced leadership and equipping their people with the skills to lead in the diverse 21st-century workforce.

We are already proud of our people culture, and we are committed to doing even more. Our people tell us that our culture of global teaming and our focus on building a better working world make EY a great place to build their careers. Our clients tell us that in recent years we have improved the effectiveness of our teams, our relationship building and our provision of high-caliber people.

We aspire to have a leading people culture everywhere in the world. Creating a culture that attracts and retains outstanding people and helps them thrive leads to better service for our clients. We are investing in three key elements of our culture that enhance what is important to our clients and our people:

  • Inclusiveness – Recruiting outstanding people is just the start. Inclusiveness means making sure all our people’s voices are heard and valued. This not only helps attract and retain the best people, but also it helps get better answers for our clients and our organization.
  • Development – Our approach to development involves offering the learning, experiences and coaching all our people need to enrich their careers and deliver the best results for clients, as well as offering additional programs for current and future leaders of our organization.
  • Engagement – We want all our people to feel enthused by their work and their colleagues and to be comfortable in an organization that gives them the flexibility to achieve their professional and personal aspirations. We engage our people in countless ways, from selecting the right people to lead major change, to taking an interest in our people as individuals, to being sure to say thank you for a job well done.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at EY full-time (Less than a year)


    The people that you work with will have your back and will work with you on your problems. If you vocalize that you are having problems on a project, management will take the time to go through your responsibilities with you and work to create a plan that will enable you to accomplish your goals and the requirements of the job. The company provides a plethora of benefits and will compensate you well for the work you put in; however, you have to actively pursue these benefits outside of your paycheck.


    The work can get stressful and heavy quickly, especially coming out of college. If you do not speak up and keep open and honest communications with management, you will be left behind and feel like you do not matter to the company, which is not true. You will work long nights and weekends, and the workload will seem like it is unending until you figure out how to manage your life and work. Working at EY requires that you not only manage yourself but also manage your managers because everyone is putting in 50+ hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Regardless of what your new staff might say, always go through at least one or two examples of each work paper or duty that needs to be completed. If you can get your staff to complete the required work with you, they will know how to ask the right questions the next time and increase the productivity of the team.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY.


    1st round is 30 minute behavioral. Fairly straightforward. I did not feel that the person who interviewed me was actually interested in who I was and what I had to offer. Recruiting team was very welcoming though.
