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

Pros

Note: Some of these only pertain to those who enjoy accounting and want to continue in it
-It's a very fun and outgoing culture of young people
-There are 3 weeks of vacation with unlimited sick days
-Access to high profile clients that will boost your resume
-Great opportunities in corporate accounting at clients for when you're ready to leave

Cons

-If you have a preference for a certain industry it is very hard to switch into that industry
-They throw you around and you do not have a say in what happens
-Compensation is TERRIBLE for hours worked and experience gained
-404 SOX testing is ridiculous and very boring
-Overall very uninteresting work. You will be bored and find little job satisfaction with your everyday activities.

Advice to Management

Please try to accommodate industry preferences for those who actually have a passion for an industry instead of throwing them at clients in need. There are plenty of kids who don't care what type of client they work on. Some do care and would appreciate the opportunity to gain experience.

    Pros

    Great vacation for kids right out of school. It's a good place to see how different companies and organizations work.

    Cons

    Long working hours, poor worklife balance. Salary is ok (hostage theory)

    Pros

    Work for great people who appreciate the effort and time you put in for them. Even though I'm just doing my job, they always say thank you.

    Cons

    Benefits are decent. Very LGBT friendly but you can't cover a same-sex domestic partner on insurance. Doesn't make sense to me. Why not be 100% equal.
