    I worked at EY (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1) Learning experience - The workload you get is similar to associates, so you really get to immerse yourself into a real working life at EY.
    2) Working with other EY colleagues - You get to work alongside associates and senior managers in multiple engagements.
    3) Impact - The work you do, directly impacts your client as well as contributes to the team you work with.
    4) Client facing - As an intern, I get to meet clients and help them solve problems directly.

    Cons

    Consulting is notorious of stripping away one's WLB (Work Life Balance). Therefore, there are times where I have to work with colleagues till midnight (even as an intern) in order to ensure the deliverables are met.

    Advice to Management

    Everything's great and smooth! Little to no complaints.

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

    Pros

    -Great work exposure in the tax team I worked for.
    -The team was wonderful. Supportive of your work and cares for your wellbeing.
    -EY hosted many events for their new recruits. Plenty of opportunities to chat with partners and meet other interns.

    Cons

    -Long working hours occasionally.
    -Low salary (RM1000/ USD200). Not enough to get by for those renting a place in KL.
    -Main office in Menara Millenium is getting crowded. Parking is troublesome after 9am; and some office floors are old.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Heard some intern friends did not enjoy a similar experience as I did, but I guess this comes down to how informed the service line manager is. Hopefully, service line managers could be more understanding and welcoming to the in-and-out intern culture in Malaysia.
