Lots of opportunity and Room for growth and achievement
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Middle East – September 26, 2016
EY is a typical high pressure consulting environment. If you go into the organization not knowing this, you would have been ill-informed. The working hours are long and client is king, which means that deadlines can be unreasonable and though teams may have conflict, the work must be delivered.
No two days in EY are the same. Client meetings, report writing, data analysis, recommendation synthesis, team meetings, conferences, presentations - all of these and/or a combination of these may happen on a daily basis for multiple clients, at multiple sites for multiple project scopes of work.
The hardest part of the job is knowing when to stop for the day and knowing how much work is too much. Your day can be as long as 12-15 hours. It pays to know the importance and priority of your checkpoints on a checklist before diving into the work.
Since EY's advisory department has a number of different services, it pays to know which kind of service you are interested in since this will be your expertise for the next few years in the firm, even though you may be shuffled between departments within advisory due to overlapping knowledge.

Assistant Director, Communications and Engagement (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 20, 2016
I have worked at EY for 5 years and I loved it and thrived. But your experience largely depends on your direct manager. My current manager is awful (an exception in this firm, I believe), which is why I'm looking for another opportunity.
Infrastructure Server Engineer (Former Employee) – Secaucus, NJ – September 19, 2016
EY used to be a great company to work for. They valued their people and promoted from within. It all changed when the family culture turned to a corporate culture. CIOs come and go every 3-4 years. IT organizations get turned up side down and many people got fired.
Since the company went globalization, what's left of the IT jobs have steadily been outsourced to other countries. Now the IT jobs in USA have been chipped away and shipped overseas where they can hire 3-4 employees for the price of one.

State Legislative Executive Project Administrator (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 1, 2016
I LOVE EY, the benefits, the compensation, the environment, the Employee discount programs BUT upward mobility and growth was not a goal. I am still perplexed at how management did not seem to be interested in the growth of its employees. As it goes in most places EY promoted the favorites and other employees are left to fend for themselves. I was in the same position, doing the same work for 10 years and was told, this would not change. What is the purpose of goals? How do you set goals if you are told nothing about your job will be changing? I met some GREAT people! I LEARNED a TON, but that stopped. My co-workers were THE best! My best advice is to get a REAL, STRONG, well respected mentor who has clout. Once my mentor left, my career at EY was pretty much over.
