Great clients and great time to work in the industry
Engagement Manager (Former Employee) –  TexasAugust 15, 2018
National Firm's are an oligopoly. But good opportunities to work with Fortune 1000 clients and to work with professionals. Good entry point for a career, this is an elevator job but not a destination.
Pros
Clients, clients, clients
Cons
Lifestyle, travel.

Very future driven
ACA Tax Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 13, 2018
The company is great if you are hired on as a non-temp. As a temp person you feel out of the loop when it comes to decisions and job advancement. You are just there to get the work done and go home.
They did however drive the force with their knowledge and helpfulness for things around the world. Things you could be proud of
Pros
Even as a temp, the pay was decent
Cons
Lack of flexibility

Great Job if Consulting is your passion
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 4, 2018
EY is a great company for those looking to develop their professional, communication, technological skills. If you are looking to work long hours, get good pay (depending on your level) and work in a variety of different project then hop on board. However, keep in mind that a lot of the projects require overtime and positions for EY are salaried base.My favorite aspect of the company is probably the culture; they provide an environment that's inclusive of all people.
Pros
culture, pay, growth
Cons
long hours, boring projects, micromanagement

Good to Get career going
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 31, 2018
EY is a great place to go to get your career going. Once you are in, you are locked in - not easy to move around or change focuses or sectors.
I would recommend EY for people early or late in their career; consultant/senior or above a Senior manager.
Pros
compensation
Cons
work life balance can be poor

Staff Auditor (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 30, 2018
Ey is a very work oriented place. employees often work 65 plus hours a week with limited weekends off. Workers tend to only want to talk about work. While professional skepticism is important to public accounting, being super skeptical of everything makes most EY managers very hard to work with.
