Great work environment
EXECUTIVE COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Secaucus, NJApril 21, 2015
For an EA the bulk of your tasks are devoted to calendar management, meeting coordination and special projects

At EY I developed all of my soft and hard skills and they provided a significant amount of training during my 9 years of tenure

My management was very supportive and I worked in a very collaborative work environment.

I experienced no challenges to perform my role at EY and enjoyed very much my EA position
Pros
Compensation and Benefits are excellent
Cons
None

Work ethic is good but lot of politics
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 21, 2016
You will learn a lot and different Management styles. But the performance reviews are not honest, most are based on how close you are with Practice Manager. If the guy doesn't like you, you are gone. The MDS based reviews are useless, they only judge you based on who has experience on particular technology needed at that time. If you have technical experience in other technology shove it somewhere, it is no use for them. They also ask you not to talk about your experience with New tools as it is a flag to the client - that something is not right. There is no training or mentor ship, counselors are useless they try to save there skin and never help you out. You are your own counselor!

Find everything about practice before joining the firm. This is not that great if you are experienced hire. You have to start from scratch and with less money you used to get.

They are trying to change strategy Model on backs of hard working employees, but the senior management are reaping benefits. Overall the model will fail, as companies don't want to pay that much money for an hour and expenses. Clients are getting less paid consultants everywhere, so they might use EY for short term to get things going and dump them when their engines are running smoothly.

I don't know why CEO wants to 2020 vision and 50 B dollars? instead of focusing on the issues and reality that all are facing in this country. Hopefully they don't think they are too Big to fail firm.
