Productive but not a fun place to work
Executive - Assurance (Former Employee) –  Bristol, CTAugust 26, 2016
There are advantage and disadvantage.

Advantage: I had the opportunity of meeting new people and client's industry are very interesting. There are proffesional very interested on having quality in deliverables.

Disadvantage: There is not life balance. For instance, people is booked to perform their job for less time or hours budget than the project needs therefore it is necessary work extra hours and any of them are paid. Managers instead of negotiate higher fees with the clients they keep the same budget and blame the team for spending more hours. On the other hand Partners and Director blame the team for not charge the real hours.

Good company with great leadership, but can get a bit too bureaucratic
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 11, 2016
Good company with great leadership, but can get a bit too bureaucratic.
Lots of internal opportunities as well, but the only downfall is when you work in consulting, utilization matters more than any of the other activities you do.

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.

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
