    I worked at EY as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Plenty of work to be done, so there's not much downtime and you're always learning. The work is similar to what a staff 1 would do, so you get a slight preview of the full-time job.

    -I got to travel during the first 3 weeks of my internship

    -Worked with 7 different clients, gaining tons of exposure to different teams, clients, and industries

    -Lots of chances for feedback; there are weekly intern experience meetings, and each intern is assigned a counselor and peer buddy.

    Cons

    - Work can be monotonous at times, but the staff you work with can make up for it.

    - Experience is determined by the teams you worked with. I never had a "bad" team during my internship though

    Advice to Management

    I'd say perhaps there could be more opportunities to explore other career paths in EY, but my internship experience was really good overall and I don't have any complaints.

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

    Pros

    Good people
    Decent benefits
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Many long, boring projects - anyone can get staffed on any project. You could end up being staffed on a project totally unrelated to your competency. EY seems much more concerned with utilization than employee growth.
