Project Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 19, 2017
As one of the Big Four professional services firms, EY has a culture of high expectations. If you like to work hard this is a great place to work. Along with the hard work, though, are many benefits and perks of working at a large, global organization. There is flexibility if your role and/or leadership allows.
Client-serving employees have a pretty clear career path
Non-client-serving (CBS) employees can have limited or unclear career path opportunities
Office Coordinator/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 18, 2017
Reviews are slightly biased and un-based Workplace of the future is amazing The culture is familiar, friendly and upbeat Dress code is respectable Tons of interns flock to the company every year Very competitive company and that will reflect in your review
There is no typical day at work, each day is different and each project is different. Learned a ton about managing people and project management. The people are awesome, however everyone works a lot and makes it hard to have a life outside of work. There are multiple opportunities to learn and grow.
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 17, 2017
Overall, the company has great culture, pay is fair but vacation time is seriously lacking. Very flexible on hours/location but advancement is difficult. Company does not distinguish between individual performance and company performance/situation. If you land on the right project, you can advance, land on the wrong project and you are stuck.

EY has one of the leading Advisory practice in Regulatory Compliance. One of the hard things is to predict what is going to be next you could be on Compliance project and next you are on Internal Audit which makes you flexible but also at the same time you need to be caution about your skills.
Lead Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 14, 2017
EY offers a lot of team building opportunities, Dinner/drinks and outings with the team was a regular occurrence. Team members were great. The work was challenging but caused you to grow in your field.
Senior Associate (Current Employee) – BBC – July 14, 2017
Wonderful place to work. Team work is very imperative and it helps greatly with long hours of working. EY strives on building a trusted relationship between both staff and clients. EY builds an environment where people with diverse backgrounds and experience can be free to be themselves and strive for excellence.
Senior Executive Assistant (Administrative Lead) (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 11, 2017
administrative management ESS only served partners not the actual EAs. Created a culture where spying an tattling on your counter parts was accepted and ultimately how you keep your job. If your point of view was different then you were overlooked and/or targeted. Used hearsay to target you and put it in reviews. EY is a culture where if you are not attached to a partner - you'll go NO WHERE fast no matter how hard you work. Your peers and how they view you is more important than your quality of work.
Used to have good people culture, but getting diluted as they expand

This is re: the management consulting practice within EY. When the consulting practice was smaller, it used to be a more collaborative workplace. As part of the firm's growth, it now looks and feels like any other large consulting firm (not very people-centric)
Account Support Associate (Former Employee) – Iselin, NJ – July 11, 2017
For the most part, EY's culture of work/life balance was very good. This was probably my biggest perk working at EY. The flexibility was extremely important to me as the caretaker for my elderly parents. Unfortunately, there were some upper management who frowned upon the flexibility for their team members. However, I was privileged to have worked with teams that were respectful of the culture.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Victoria – July 11, 2017
I enjoyed working at EY due to the people focus and the culture. I have made countless friends and a wide network through my work here. The work was often rewarding however some of the tasks at the junior levels could be quite repetitive or boring. This gets better as you rise through the ranks. The hours were unpredictable but there definitely is a flexible approach to working hours and location depending on your individual team. I would happily work for EY again.
