    I have been working at EY as an intern

    Pros

    EY is a great place to intern. There are events weekly, the people here are very friendly, and the office has a pretty relaxed vibe to it. They make you feel very welcome and want you to have a productive and enjoyable intern experience.

    Cons

    There isn't really anything negative about interning or about the firm so far.

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

    Pros

    As a launch intern, I got to experience two different service lines; Assurance/Advisory and Tax. The pay is beyond wonderful and the people you work with are friendly and care about your learning experience. They want you to invest your time in them and work with them in the future. This is a beautiful feeling. As long as you talk to your team, they can accommodate when you come into work and whether or not you can work from home.

    Cons

    Nothing bad so far in the time that I have interned at EY

    Pros

    Relaxed introduction to public accounting. Best way to figure out if the field is for you. You get to go to Disney world at the end.

    Really short internship. Only on the job for roughly 6 weeks. Audit usually isn't during busy season if you intern over the summer.

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

    Pros

    The biggest pro of joining a specialty group is that, as you gain more information in that specific area, you tend to be much more valuable in the market. Since I'm a tax guy, I'll take this from the tax side. Almost everyone has general federal tax expertise, but if you decide to take invest in a specialized area of tax, such as Research and Development, and really run with it, that specialized knowledge can make you very valuable and always have a job within the public accounting world.

    Cons

    The biggest con to those specialized practices is often it will make you unemployable, or less employable, outside of public accounting. Again, with tax, many big companies need people who have that general fed taxation knowledge, but very, very few need an employee dedicated to Research and Development.

    Advice to Management

    Starting in one of these specific practices right out of college can really give you an advantage if that's the field you want to stay in (whether travel is a pro or a con is up to you).
