Professionalism and Ability to be Self-Motivated are keys to success
Senior Security Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 3, 2016
The most challenging aspect of working for EY for an introvert like me is that because of the remote work lifestyle people have to make an effort to establish and maintain relationships with coworkers. However, this flexibility is probably one of the most enjoyable things about the job.
Pros
Flexible work hours and location; benefits/perks; smart people
Cons
[Lack of] planning and strategy causes a lot of rework and throwaway deliverables

Working at EY
Business Data Analyst II (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 6, 2016
Working at EY has its pros and cons. It is a reputable company that does promote career growth. However, work life balance is hard to achieve in salary positions. Also, promotion and competitive compensation is hard to come by. The company encourages "boomerangs" which means, if you leave the company to find a better salary (which is common) you can come back and THEN the company will pay you more. Until then - the company does not pay competitive wages

Intense and Competitive Environment
Audit Associate (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTJune 28, 2016
Ernst and Young has a very intense and focused mission on making 50 billion dollars by 2020. Nothing but the best would be the most exact way to describe the expectation they have for all those who work for them. Hours worked can be anywhere from 40 to 100 a week depending on the timing within the season. As auditing is intense, the time for fun is limited, but most teams know when to have fun.
Pros
Starting salary
Cons
No breaks, work environment

Did not get the EY experience. The company was acquired. The retention was 50%.
UAT Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAAugust 6, 2016
I did not get the EY experience. We are an acquired company so the rules, boundaries and growth was different. EY outside of our merger had the culture that we were told about. If one comes in as a regular EY employee the transition would be much smoother. The community at large seemed to be very pleased with the support and the ability to be supported. The company has many methods for growth but one has to ask their co-workers and management to guide them so that you can move forward. Do not put these tasks in any one person's hands. Make sure you have a Mentor and Sponsor that can share the unspoken rules with you. Find organizations to join to network with others so you can get the advise you need to move forward.

Challenging and fun place to work
Strategic Technology Advisor (Intern) (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 27, 2016
My basic workday would include checking email for new and pending assignments. Complete and submit analysis for ongoing projects. attend several conference calls keeping the team informed accomplishments, progress, setbacks or challenges. Maintained an effective and open line of communication with all levels of management and co workers. I learned allot about risk and resiliency. The hardest part of the job was leaving once the internship was over. The most enjoyable part of the job were the daily challenges and the people I got to meet and glean from.

it was only an intern position

Learn Alot but Can't Choose
Advisory Consultant (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 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.

Summary
IT Advisory Associate (Former Employee) –  Statesboro, GAJune 30, 2016

Pros
advancement, great experience
Cons
low 401k, work space isn't a very happy place.

Assurance Staff (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 7, 2016
I really enjoy working with the people at EY. Everyone I have met thus far have been very outgoing and sociable. EY really invests in their people whether it is networking events or happy hours. If I were to continue my career with EY, it would be mainly due to the people I have encountered and the people that I will encounter in the future.

I like the company as it has great people culture
Senior Web Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 27, 2016
EY is a great company where your voice can be heard and respected. I would recommend my friends to work with EY.

For people who just start their career, EY is great as you will have the chance to explore different clients in different industries and figure out what your passion really is.

Good place to work to gain experience
Senior Associate - Wealth and Asset Management (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 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.
Pros
Benefits, vacation time.
Cons
Long hours, large workloads, stressful environments.
