    I have been working at EY as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great support and great mentoring from the seniors above. The office is very friendly and encouraging, I have only done the internship but I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Cons

    I have yet to work a busy season so I don't think I can really comment on the toughest parts of the year and have not had a bad experience yet. But if having a consistent office location is something you are looking for, you won't have that here.

    Advice to Management

    I have been treated very well as an intern so Management has done a great job with that. They have also shown great dedication to their interns so I have been very happy so far.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic corporate culture, especially given the size of the company. People are really supportive and helpful. Benefits are excellent. Great place to launch career.

    Cons

    Salary and bonuses leave quite a bit to be desired. Benefits make up for at least part of the issue, but overall pay is not strong.

    I worked at EY full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Comprehensive Benefits, Competitive Salary, Competent and Capable Management

    Cons

    Sometimes billing the hours you work can feel like tight-rope walking. You want to appear efficient and management reiterates the policy of billing these hours, but you sometimes do so at the risk of blowing up budgets which seniors/managers can have issues with.

    Advice to Management

    N/A. EY has established a great corporate culture that focuses on investing in it's employees. Daily operations and effectiveness of it's resources seem to reflect that.

    you get good experience working here. You are given much responsibility early on

    Start caring about your people. Spend time staffing appropriately so that your workers aren't dying over their work load

    "This Company is Extremely Overrated"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Looks good on your resume, and that's about it
    - Beginning pay is fair, even though less than ideal
    - Stay at good hotels when traveling, even though you're always at the office

    Cons

    - Management has absolutely no respect whatsoever for employees
    - Management treat employees who are in their thirties and forties like 5-year old children
    - You may have to do really stupid tasks like get your boss's lunch or throw away your boss's trash just because he thinks he's above it, and even though you have Master's degrees and years of experience
    - Management often falsely accuse staff and employees of things that they did not do
    - The promotion goes to the coworker who goes out for 2-hour or 3-hour lunches, and you may not get one even though you work like a dog and skip meals to satisfy your boss
    - Most supervisors are micromanagers and do not let you work peacefully after administering your work
    - Managers are often dishonest in terms of chargeability, and will screw clients by charging them even though the employees are only "pretending" to do work or "looking busy," and this is especially done by senior/managers and above, only Staff actually do work at this firm, without getting any credit for it
    - A whole novel can be written about bad points of working at this seemingly great firm, don't come here just because of the name because it's equivalent to misjudging a book by its cover

    Advice to Management

    - Change your condescending attitudes toward your employees, if you treat adults like 5-year old children, they will LEAVE
    - Even though you're a Big 4 firm, mistreatment of employees will eventually catch up with you if it has not already done so in this economy
    - Ever heard of Honesty?? Try that out some time.


  10. "Good place to work"

    Pros

    Great opportunities and a variety of different fields of expertise, people first culture (Sometimes), seems like most managers grasp this concept, flexibility.

    Cons

    Sometimes expectations too high and unreasonable. Pay is less than peers, while working more, although positioning yourself for more income in future.

    Advice to Management

    Global policies seem to push out people first philosophies, although sometimes local management seems to forget the importance. Would suggest more of a focus on this locally. More clear and direct feedback would also be helpful.
