    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at EY full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Very transparent leadership on salary decision process, has been making an effort to adjust home-grown talent salaries to align with "boomerang" employees jumping to other firms and back for higher salaries - Ethical company - Coworkers are truly supportive and encouraging of a work life balance

    Cons

    - A lot of travel - Many restrictions on personal investments, etc due to EY independence requirements (similar to all big 4 firms) - 401k matching is minimal

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at EY full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Although EY can be a hard place to work the pros certainly outweigh the cons. EY is a very demanding job as far as expectations and that’s what makes it great. The learning opportunities as an assurance staff-manager are very beneficial. At EY you will quickly notice your abilities as an accountant will improve at a much faster rate than if you were in industry. You will be exposed to more processes, accounts... and industries than you would outside of the firm. I would also say the firm culture is a huge plus. Most people are very friendly and outgoing as well as competitive, which will push you to be your best every day.

    Cons

    EY is a very demanding job. At times it will feel like you have to put your personal life on hold. Additionally, the pay can feel like it doesn’t match to your output. Especially at the staff level.

    I have been working at EY full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Partners treat the interns great - always willing to make time in their schedule to grab coffee with an intern.

    Cons

    Lots of hours, underpaid compared to other Big 4.

    Advice to Management

    More engagement exposure at the intern level - does more to sell the intern on joining full-time.
