    Pros

    Some of the people at EY are genuinely the nicest you'll ever meet. No one is outright unpleasant to work with.

    Cons

    I was paid less than a male colleague, even though I had more experience. When I went to HR, they made up immaterial reasons for paying him more. You are really just another number. They are only focused on their year-end targets and will sell you out if they have to. I had a really terrible experience. That's not to say that others don't or can't have a good experience, but I personally did not.

    Advice to Management

    Take your values seriously.

    Pros

    Excellent intern program, great pay

    Cons

    Work is somewhat boring and did not learn as much as I had expected. The company sells risk advisory as consulting when it really is just internal audit.

    Advice to Management

    Let interns be more transparent with how the genuinely enjoyed their work rather than punishing them for not enjoying it.

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

    Pros

    Exposure to many sorts/sizes of companies. Client interaction (amount depending on role/level).

    Cons

    Time tracking is a huge difficulty and source of stress, and forgetting to track time 3 times in a year (even if you're out of office or on vacation) leads to capped full-year reviews. Teams vary widely. Hard to take vacation due to long hours and team constraints.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring more people would reduce workload on current employees.
