    Advice to Management

    Seems that high performers do a lot of heavy lifting while still being compensated fairly similarly with peers. Should do more to reward and keep top talent.

    Audit Senior III in Houston, TX
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at EY for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Loved the teams I worked on. Generally good people. Able to move up and manage teams at an early stage in your career is a plus.

    Cons

    The only people that stick around at this company are the ones that are willing to schmooze the partners and senior managers. People towards the top or the ones that want to eventually be partners are willing to throw you under the bus to get ahead. The hours worked can be intense, having worked 100+ hours a week with little reward. The bonuses given are a joke compared to the time you spend year-round working on... jobs. You may get through a tough busy season and they will throw a $100-$200 gift card at you for your efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the employees who do good work, but are terrible at management. They are toxic to the people below. I have heard countless stories and excuses such as, "we know they are terrible to work for, but they get the job done".

    Current Employee - Assurance Senior in Oklahoma City, OK
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at EY full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You'll be able to learn in a fast paced environment with other like minded people. All employees are motivated and hard working which makes the workplace truly a positive environment. Because you have the opportunity to work on multiple industries and multiple clients your experience is much more valuable than if you just work at one company for the same amount of time. This is a fantastic place to grow your career.... There have also been a ot of initiatives to make work life balance more readily available. Flexible work arrangements and 16 weeks of paid parental leave are extremely attractive.

    Cons

    Trade off for all of the learning is that you'll be devoting a lot of your time to working, and none of it will be reflected in compensated time or overtime pay. However, that time is used to get the job done. If you're more task oriented this will be helpful.
