Advisory Consultant (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 12, 2016
You learn much about working in teams, project management, maintaining and growing relationships with clients as well as highly specific subject matter. You will learn while here but what you will learn is entirely up to you, and there will be barriers from management as to what type of work you can and cannot support. Large time investment required to have a decision in where you want your career to take you. Typical of most corporations.
Advisory Services, Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 6, 2016
Challenging environment to quickly succeed, especially on the Advisory-side. Make sure to have strong / experienced counselors and advisors. Always ask for training / guidance / etc... impossible to identify what resources are available without support.
Internal Auditor/Consultant, Staff (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 30, 2016
I recommend this company if you are looking for a challenge and willing to learn in a fast pace work environment. Long hours and a lot of travel. This is due to the nature of the client base and location.
Senior Associate - Wealth and Asset Management (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 18, 2016
EY is a good place to work and gain experience but they claim to have a good work/life balance and that is not true. Most jobs at EY expect you to work a lot of hours throughout the year and if you are not on the client serving side, you do not get the same career guidance and job growth. I find it hard to progress at a place like EY without having a CPA. The benefits and pay are good if you stay for a number of years and get great reviews. In the end, the amount of hours and workloads have no end in sight and employee appreciation is not as positive as in years' past. Most of the focus is on increasing revenues and gaining clients. There is not a lot of focus on their own people.
Benefits, vacation time.
Long hours, large workloads, stressful environments.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Luxembourg – April 15, 2016
Being part of a Big Four was my first experience after I graduated, as I wasn't working in the field I studied, I didn't stay long but I definitely learned a lot about the respect of the policies, working hard and late sometimes, be there for colleagues, also always keep my brain trained.
Senior Assurance Services/Auditor (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – April 13, 2016
Working as a Senior Auditor has been a great experience. My day at work involves examining and analyzing journal and ledger entries, inventories, assets and liabilities. Prepare detail report on audit findings and make recommendations to improve established accounting and management practices. Supervise and train/educate articulating students and other staff auditors.
Senior Manager, Financial Services Office Advisory (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 4, 2016
Although I had sufficient support at the partner level, the marketplace may not support the firm's vision. Overall, I had a positive experience with the firm, supporting clients, driving revenue, and providing technology service delivery.
Assurance Manager (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – April 4, 2016
I feel like my experience here has been invaluable; every day it seems like I learn something new. The hardest part is definitely the hours, which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. I enjoy the responsibility given from day #1, as well as the ability to interact with my team and client on a daily basis.
