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.

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.
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:
I have been working at EY full-time (More than 5 years)
A company that really cares about their people. Allows for flexible work environments as long as you communicate and complete your work in a timely manner. Many benefits including reimbursement for certain health and fitness expenses, long summer holiday weekends, and referral bonuses. Most of the people I work with are caring, dynamic, professional, and entertaining individuals.
Outside of busy season, it isn't uncommon to have certain periods of heavier work flows, i.e. 50ish hour work weeks. Utilization (% of work charged to billable hours), can be a bit high, though the % varies depending on your work level.
More work seems to be delegated to India or handled by BOTs which may be good for the company overall, but maybe not the best for those wanted to gather further experience in the US.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EY in November 2018.
The whole experience was fast, structured, and pleasant. I received an email from the recruiter asking if I have an interest in this new position. After reviewing the job description, I applied and replied back to her. The recruiter instantly responded and a pre-recorded interview link was sent in the same week. I finished the HireVue pre-recorded interview at the beginning of week 2 and was invited to the next round (2 live video interviews) on Friday. The pre-recorded HireVue interview consisted of 6 questions, mostly behavioral gauging your interests. For each question, I was allowed to record twice. The live video interviews had two parts: a case study, and behavioral. The case study took 45 mins but it's not too hard. Basically I was given a small data set and allowed to explore it for a few minutes; after that, the interviewer asked me 5 questions. You can tackle this easily as long as you're comfortable with Excel. The behavioral interview took 30 mins; it's more like a casual conversation with the senior manager. I received a phone call from the recuirter two business days after the final interviews. From the beginning to the end the whole process took only 19 days. I was then invited to the office visit, which was really nice. I had to decline as I have other offers, but sounds like an exciting opportunity for graduates interested in data analytics.
