Staff Senior (Current Employee), Dubai – July 2, 2014
Pros: invaluable exposure, enhance mentoring skills, ability to work as part of team and individually
Cons: long working hours, lack of monetary and other benefits
Ernst & Young has played a detrimental role in my development as a professional accountant by providing me with an opportunity to work on a diversified portfolio of clients.
I have been able to work both – more... individually and in a team in most cases dealing directly with top level management at the client and executives at the firm. I have greatly enhanced by team working capabilities and have also made significant strides in playing the role of a mentor for all my junior staff.
The nature of the work would usually entail highlighting and conducting a client risk assessment which would have a material impact on the company's financial statements. As part of the process, using the appropriate audit techniques and procedures to mitigate the risk and bring it down to an acceptable level. Where the risk impact is material and cannot be mitigated, informing the audit executives of the underlying risk and its potential impact on the financial statements. As part of the work, I have dealt with complex transactions such as loan refinancing, financial instruments. and incorporated the same as part of the final report to the executives and in the year end financial statements.
I have very good working knowledge of MS word, excel and power point along with ERP systems such as Tally, SAP, Great Plains, etc.
Due to the nature of the job, it has been difficult to strike a work life balance which I feel is something that I would look closely for in any of my future employers. I do not avoid hard work but I truly believe that striking a balance would be more productive for an employer in the long run. – less

Although demanding, EY is a company you learn and grow with. The culture and environment are excellent as they truly value their employees. If you are looking for a company that challenges and hones – more... your skills, this is it. I mostly enjoyed the wonderful people I was able to encounter within the company and their clients. Truly the most interesting and rewarding company I have worked for in my 20 years of experience. – less
EY is a great company to work for. The management teams are good. Most are well rounded in their day to day job duties. EY's training regime is top notch and will have you prepared to do your assigned job.

Pros: Cheap Parking
Cons: getting a desk
I had a very flexible schedule during the week. I was able to work from home when needed with my sons therapy. The people were easy to get along with. My only complaint was getting a new desk everyday and reserving my spot to work. Projects were great experience to get under my belt.

Facilities/Records Management Coordinator (Current Employee), SAN FRANCISCO – August 5, 2015
EY is a great place to work but there's really no room for growth in our department. The management needs to improve on getting the staff be held accountable for their work and the workloads needs to be fair for everyone.
