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

    Pros

    They don't fire people here.

    Cons

    They don't fire people.
    Bullies advance in the firm. Politics are rampant. HR does not address complaints. Company is top heavy. Many senior managers actually do very little work. Associate level people end up doing much work that would be better off given to interns.

    Advice to Management

    Take out the trash. Fire the bullies instead of promoting them. Actually practice the values that the company preaches.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible and the firm over all is amazing. Benefits are great and possibly the main reason why people stay in the department.

    Cons

    Absolutely the worst experience. Everyone there hates working there. Micromanaged daily, and the leaders have absolutely no leadership qualities. Turn over is extremely high.

    Advice to Management

    Get new leadership.

    Pros

    Available Educational Resources, Promotes CPE outside of engagements.

    Cons

    Non-Inclusive Environment. Poor Tone at the Top, Poor Control Environment, Chooses client retention over professional standards. Look at recent SEC fines resulting from this culture.

    Advice to Management

    Put people on the board and in senior management who favor professional standards over any existing client, and who understand the long term benefits over any possible short term loss with this change in culture.

    I worked at EY full-time

    Pros

    there are little to no pros about working for the FSO Recruiting Team

    Cons

    Never get a chance to actually get to know the candidate. The FSO Recruiting is all about #'s and not focused on the candidate experience.

    Pros

    Good benefits, especially vacation time.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, especially for CSAs.

    Advice to Management

    Are CSAs employees or are they contractors? Having it both ways reflects your corporate culture of employee exploitation.

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

    Pros

    Looks great on the resume when looking for a new job. Worked at some big name clients and gained a lot industry insight and accounting knowledge.

    Cons

    Although eating hours is an unwritten rule in public accounting for a lot of people I choose not to do this. I was asked to write off time by a manager and limit my time with but 'get the job done' as they 'did not want a difficult conversation with the partner'. I complained about this, promptly found myself off the client, and had an awful review by said manager. Come year end I was threatened with being fired as a result of poor performance. Unsurprisingly, I was never asked for the corroborating evidence I had to back up my version of events and quit before I was axed. Unfortunately, this site won't allow me to name and shame.

    Advice to Management

    Find a backbone. You have a Whistle blower policy, so honor it and don't support retaliation in the workplace.

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

    Pros

    Nice people, food benefits, decent vacation policy, huge company so there are many groups. That's about all there is to say here

    Cons

    Though my employment here was many years ago, during My time at EY, my managers and seniors were completely lacking in my professional development. They expected me to know what I was doing without formal training, and scolded me rather than helped me when I did not perform a task exactly the way I wanted.

    With such a large company, I do know others that had a better experience. Anther staff actually cried on multiple occasions during a project because our senior was THAT BAD. Sadly, my experience at EY completely turned me off to the field and I am much happier and much less stressed doing what I do now.

    Advice to Management

    Be much more thorough in training for particular assignments
