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

    Pros

    EY has a culture that is truly in a class of its own. My colleagues and I never dread coming to work, always leave work optimistic and proud that we are a part of this company. Although not perfect, EY is striving as a company to reach balanced diversity from the top down. The work life balance is great, our full time employees are exceptional for the most part, and the rewards are some of the best in the industry. I’m thrilled to be a part of EY two and a half years later.

    Cons

    IT practices are immature. EY still hasn’t figured out product development, although the company is investing heavily and is making great progress in this area. IT still leans heavily on contracted resources which often aren’t vetted and end up being lackluster resources. Lots of red tape to wade through, as with any large company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more heavily in hiring vetted, full time resources within IT. It’s cheaper in the long term, and you’ll end up with better products because your employees are invested in the success of the companies initiatives. Lastly, focus more on customer needs first, followed by technology and design as the enabler. Right now, there’s too much focus on putting technology first and that causes the firm to lose track of why it is that we’re building products.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    Interview process took about two weeks (final round was yesterday still awaiting decision). Started with a phone screening with a recruiter essentially asking about my experience and what interests me about EY. Told me about the position and benefits. Got an email the next day saying the team wanted to speak with me. Next step was a video conversation with a manager on the team. He asked me questions about my experience, project management exp, etc. and then a few behavioral questions (tell me about a time when...). The following Monday I was contacted to schedule a “Superday” the following Friday. The day consisted of an office tour with a new consultant and then 3 interviews. Interview one was the typical case study (“analytical interview”) which was a standard profitability case. The next was a behavioral interview where they give you a situation as a consultant and ask how you’d handle it. The third was a conversational interview with the partner. Overall very good experience with them.
