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

Pros

Working for EY will expose you to some of the top companies. When asked what people like most about working at EY they will response, "the people." EY has a great people first culture and rewards those who work hard.

Cons

Like most public accounting firms, it is difficult to have a work life balance.

Advice to Management

Transferring internally (whether different service line or city) is incredibly difficult and time consuming. I encourage EY to the internal transfer process more streamlined.

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

    Pros

    EY does expect the best work and extra hours from its employees, but it also touts many benefits including programs to help employees manage their personal lives better. Employees get access to group discounts with numerous retailers, access to financial planners and legal advisors for free or reduced fees, care providers for elderly or children on short notice, health & wellness perks, and more. There is constant focus on your professional development, mentoring, rewards and recognition so you often feel like your feedback is being heard and your work is appreciated and valued. The people I've met and worked with have all been hard-working, kind and collegial.

    Cons

    As a large firm made up of smaller divisions and teams, your job satisfaction will depend largely on your team leadership and environment. Most of the partners and senior leadership seem to genuinely care about my professional development from the perspective that they'll need the junior consultants to carry the torch and keep adding to revenue once they retire. That also means that as a partnership, it is ultimately up or out. Depending on your group's revenue prospects, there may or may not be room for you at the top. Even if you're out, I understand the firm does work hard to help you find a place to go, however, as they'll like to count on you as a future client.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
