More Pros and Cons

  1. "Sounds great, but its not"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Valuation Analyst in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Valuation Analyst in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    If you want to get your CPA and practice accounting, then put in your two years and get a great name on your resume. Other than that not many pros.

    Cons

    Basically felt like I was a math checker, which is surprising considering I wasn't an auditor. A lot of mundane work that anyone can do. Unlimited sick days and the vacation was generous but it''s always so busy none of those were an option.

    Advice to Management

    You need to adapt to the millennials coming in. Not everyone wants to work 100 weeks for months straight and not feel compensated for it.

    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Flexible teams and work arrangements, 401K, good quality team members, people who genuinely care about their people, stable annual increases in salary

    Cons

    Hours, pay, local office culture isn't very tight-knit, leaders don't really practice what they preach

    Stop promoting people who don't treat their people despite bringing in business, there's a reason why so many seniors leave because the wrong people get promoted
