    I worked at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good culture and great resume builder.

    Cons

    Lack of work/life balance, treated as an asset rather than a person.


  7. "EY Manager"

    Current Employee - Staff Consultant in Columbus, OH

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

    Pros

    Smart people, flexible culture. Always working with the top clients and high level of visibility with upper management at all levels. Fast paced work, never bored.

    Cons

    Performance bonuses are extremely low even for the highest performers. Company seems to have accepted high turnover as inevitable so they don't seem to do much in terms of retention.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to be on the front lines of new business culture adoption- maternity leave, flexible travel arrangements, promotions and rankings, performance bonus structure. Lots of companies are making strides and EY seems to be just a follower.

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

    Pros

    - Working with intelligent, friendly people
    - good challenges
    - good opportunities for relocation (internationally as well)
    - steady promotion track
    - mentorship

    Cons

    - competitive (could also be seen as a pro)

    - firm is so large it can be hard to connect with the right people for the opportunities you're seeking

    Advice to Management

    I've been very happy with EY Management in general. At times there can be a disconnect but for the most part I work closely with Management and have ample opportunities for mentorship.

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

    Pros

    A great place to start your career. A lot of online learning modules you can take to broaden your knowledge in almost any accounting area. So many opportunities and I have never ever seen a company that actually want their employees to succeed. EY truly do care about it's employees. It's a great culture to be in.

    Cons

    Time tracking is a pain, but for public it's expected. Busy season is no joke. Client's can be a pain, but that's almost something that you will deal with no matter where you go.

    Pros

    You learn a lot that will help you throughout your career after you leave public accounting. It is a great place to start a career

    Cons

    Busy season is rough because it doesn't leave you a lot of time to spend with family. Busy season is also synonymous with eating out every night. Get ready to put on some pounds.
