Great company to start your career
Risk Advisory Consultant (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 28, 2017
EY is a great company to start your consulting career in, working with numerous clients and working in a fast pace environment will only help you for your future. My main point is, this is not a 9-5 job, you will work late hours, you will have to deal with clients that are not pleasant to work with. You will have to use your mind and deal with new projects you have never worked on before. Some people are happy with a simple 9-5 same routine type of job, if you are that type this would not work out for you. Trust me i can say that from experience
Pros
Health benefits, sick days, vacation days
Cons
Long hours, no work life balance, pay is not equal to the hours you actually put in

Good Big 4 firm
Senior Auditor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 27, 2017
Many options within the company and overall good experience. Can get lost however in the size of the departments and teams. Culture and environment are engagement by engagement.

EY is a great place to work.
Assurance Staff (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 26, 2017
EY offers a lot of training and on-job-coaching for staffs and we have a lot of opportunities to learn and network. It also has a inclusive working culture so you get the chance to work with people from very different backgrounds.

Great career choice
Audit Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 26, 2017
At EY you are going to work hard, and work with great people. If you don't plan to stay long, that is fine. It will excel your career trajectory. If you are going to hang around a while, you won't regret the experience. Get ready for the ride of your life.

Fast paced, but rewarding company
Assurance Staff II (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 25, 2017
Working at EY is definitely a great experience. Despite how long you work there, you can expect to be exposed to a ton of great people, and great companies. Unfortunately, this does come at a cost. You can expect to be busy several months out of the year. During those busy times, you are expected to work a minimum of 55 hours a week. Additionally, at peak times, you are expected to work 7 days a week. Overall, it's a great company to work for if you are willing to dedicate yourself to it. There is little to no time for outside activities while working here.
Pros
cell phone/meal allowances
Cons
no work/life balance

Great benefits and opportunities at the expense of your time and sanity
Assurance Staff (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 24, 2017
I enjoy working for EY as they offer a lot of opportunities that other jobs wouldn't. Chances to travel, experience things you can't afford, and lots of great benefits. There are also great people who work for EY as well. However, the work/life balance is abysmal by design. You will slave away during certain times of the year even if you are a Manager or above. Other times during the year you will work normal hours (40-45 a week). Management can also be untrained to manage as the promotion system is set to where people will promote every year (with few exceptions). You will find that some of your managers are lacking in both soft and hard skills but there is no opportunity for upward feedback. Training could definitely be more comprehensive and specific to our roles. EY is a great place to start your career, but many people just stress themselves out until they finally decide to leave.
Pros
Great benefits, Best way to advance in your career in a short period of time, Opportunity to create a huge network, Lots of volunteer opportunities available
Cons
Terrible work-life balance, Work inhumane hours during busy season, Management can be really terrible since everyone promotes whether or not they are ready to manage, You can either get really lucky or unlucky based on your client

Great Work Life Balance
Senior IT Risk Transformation Consultant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 24, 2017
Learned a ton and got to have a lot of autonomy in the the workplace. Took on a lot of responsibility and could see upward growth potential. Management is fair, but bonus are weak.

Great starting point for accounting career
Assurance Associate (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 23, 2017
EY is a solid firm to start your accounting career, as you get a lot of experience in different accounting areas with large and small clients. During busy season, expect to work most weekends and up to 90 hours a week.

Typical Big 4
Auditor in Risk Advisory Services (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHMay 23, 2017
a typically big 4 firm. very little top down communication of who is and is not moving through the ranks. a high performance culture that breeds clawing and scratching to try and get ahead of everyone else in the organization.

Heavy pressure, negative work environment.
Audit Senior (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLMay 21, 2017
There's a reason people don't last long. It is very difficult to work there for a long period of time. You are expected to know many things very quickly and meet unrealistic expectations.

Good place for building career. You will get to work with the smartest people around. People are fantastic. Work culture is very cut throat and will require you to be on top of your game.

Ernst and Young
Financial Planner (Former Employee) –  Secaucus, NJMay 16, 2017
Ernst and Young is a great place to work if you are fresh out of school or looking to establish your resume, but otherwise I would recommend avoiding it. The culture is extremely poor and they will try to pay you the least amount as possible while concurrently trying to squeeze every inch of life out of you.
Pros
Good benefits package and non-contributory pension plan.
Cons
Horrible culture.
