    Pros

    EY is a great place to work with a fantastic feeling around the office. Everyone works together to achieve common goals.

    Cons

    Since I've been at EY I haven't had any major negative points. The work is challenging but rewarding, resulting in a positive experience all round.

    Advice to Management

    Since I've been at EY I haven't had any major negative points. Therefore I wouldn't have any advice for management.

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

    Pros

    -Exposure to different companies
    -Flexibility (Allows you to take charge of your own schedule)
    -If you are unhappy with one team or project, you have the ability to move to another project or another service line as long as you put in the effort and remain proactive
    -EY presents you with global opportunities or opportunities to work abroad

    Cons

    -Office politics
    -Women are not as heavily represented in the higher positions
    -Working in external audit, you will sometimes be forced to work with individuals who do not like you or see you as an annoyance or burden
    -As someone coming from EY San Francisco, EY London salaries are not proportioned to cost of living

    Advice to Management

    -Be more visible in the day to day work to encourage the consultants
    -Provide performance bonuses or more performance driven compensation because the motivation for doing well is low due to no reward for people that outperform others
    -There is a lack of positive recognition for employees that perform well

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

    Pros

    EY has given me the best of opportunities to learn and implement knowledge. The best place to work with a good environment and grow in career.

    Cons

    EY has three months busy season and extended working hours. I have always been flexible to stay in office to meet my client's urgent deadline. The only challenge is EY doesn't pay extra for extended hours shift.

    Pros

    I'd recommend EY as a great place to work. People are the heart of the organisation. It's purpose lead, inclusive, diverse and consists of like minded professionals who team together. You feel you can bring your whole self to work and are encouraged to do so. You have the ownership to build your own career and have the support to do this as well as balancing this with your day to day life.

    Cons

    I can't think of any

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in our people and living our values, it's what makes us unique and EY such a great place to work

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Put skin in the game to solve clients challenges. Truly care about staff development and welfare. Have a morale compass and promote staff to be curious and challenge the norm. Put great emphasis on having a healthy workload balance.

    Cons

    Abundance of internal work can detract from the exceptional client service provided if individuals don't manage their time effectively. Strike a balance.

    Advice to Management

    Align remuneration programme to more accurately reflect performance.
