EY is a great place for high performers
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 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.
Pros
Client-serving employees have a pretty clear career path
Cons
Non-client-serving (CBS) employees can have limited or unclear career path opportunities

Great place to work
General Ledger, Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 19, 2017
This was a great place to work. Hours were fine. No overtime was expected. Atmosphere was great. Managers did not micromanage.

However, EY decided to send jobs overseas and not keep American workers. Everyone scattered.

Works people hard, but provides opportunities for growth and development
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 17, 2017
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.
Pros
Benefits, Compensation
Cons
Limited Work Life Balance

Great place to work, hard to advance
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 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.

Competitive Envioronment
Senior Consultant, Financial Services Office (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 15, 2017
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.

Typical public accounting firm.

Pros
Overtime hours could be banked for time off later.
Cons
Long hours during busy season.

Had a great time working at EY

The company culture was perfect. Got to work at 9am. Usually finished around 5:30pm. The management provided counseling services and were always available to assist all associates.

could be a great place if all were treated equal
Senior Executive Assistant (Administrative Lead) (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 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.
Pros
location
Cons
management and partners totally disconnected

Used to have good people culture, but getting diluted as they expand
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 11, 2017
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)
Pros
Retirement benefits, smart people, work-life balance
Cons
Performance bonus, 401k, restrictions on investments

Flexibility was great
Account Support Associate (Former Employee) –  Iselin, NJJuly 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.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Mutual Respect sometimes lacked

Consultant (Former Employee) –  VictoriaJuly 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.
