Everything Starts with the Manager
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 16, 2018
IT Manager is only focused on his career. If you are not a "good old boy" good luck at a advancement in the IT department. IT Manager is a micro manager.

Good place to work with prospects for long term growth
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 16, 2018
EY is a good place to work and if you want you can stay here for a very long time. It is difficult to find the right group to work with, and it requires a lot of digging to make it happen for yourself. You need to get the right people behind you to do well here.
Pros
Yearly bonuses and raises
Cons
Bonuses/raises are loosely tied to performance

Not great work/life balance
Client Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 15, 2018
The benefits are great. You can work remotely in some roles. But, the trade off is being available all the time and not really having a home life that is separate from your work life.
Pros
Great benefits, ability to work from home
Cons
Work all hours

Software Development Director (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAOctober 12, 2018
It is not a corporation, but a partnership with many influencers rather that a streamlined decision-making process. They take "diversity and inclusiveness" to extremes that make it frankly difficult not to be a minority.


Absolutely everything else about EY makes it the perfect place to work.

Senior Document Specialist (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IAOctober 12, 2018
The best thing about EY is the flexible working environment. The company allows me to be there for my daughter and work from home. We also get the week between Christmas and New Years off.

A great place to work
Senior (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 10, 2018
The company knows what they are doing and tries to grow its people. The pay is lower than most alternatives places to work, but the opportunity of landing a good job upon exist offsets the relatively low compensation.

It is a great place to work. As a consultant you will have the opportunity to work on disparate projects which would build great experience. EY is highly respected in the industry.

A fine place for tax/finance/accounting folks, NOT developers
Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 9, 2018
The company aids career development as long as the path is tax, finance or accounting related. Anything outside those fields isn't really visible to the company.

High stress environment but provides lots of learning opportunities
Supervisor of Client Serving Associates (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAOctober 7, 2018
The client comes first and you have to have a do whatever it takes attitude in order to serve the client. This involves working long days and weekends.

The employees are highly skilled and you can learn from all of the other employees.
Pros
Employees are smart and work hard, team environment
Cons
Work long hours and weekends

great team depending on the department
Client Support Coordinator Global Mobility Tax, AS (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 6, 2018
Had a pleasant experience with the exception of one team/department. Was able to work with a team that was mostly based out of state. Due to my client, was able to travel extensively which wasn't usual for my work level in the tax department. Worked on a top chairman's tax account which gave me a lot of exposure and visibility to the client almost as much as the tax professional staff. Enjoyed being able to communicate with varied levels (from junior to senior executive/partner). Company had an overall inclusive culture, however some departments/teams were more inclusive and employee caring than others.
Pros
team outings, work flexibility, remote working, employee benefits
Cons
team/department clicks

corporate politics is alive and well
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 5, 2018
Tax is a deadline driven business, so it is not surprising that work weeks were focused on the buildup and delivery of deliverables.

EY does afford a variety of professional education opportunities, including periodic learning weeks, occasional lunch-and-learns and frequent internal webcasts.
Pros
benefits were good
Cons
achievements are quickly forgotten

Great place to start
Forensics Staff II (Former Employee) –  HoustonOctober 4, 2018
Can't go wrong with the one of the highest rated of the big 4, for best places to work. The kool-aid is poured really thick. You have a bunch of kids fresh out of college that think its the worst place to work because they don't have any perspective. They leave fairly quickly or get in a groove and get good at what they do.

A great company for career minded individuals
Assistant Director, Finance (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAOctober 1, 2018
EY is a fantastic career choice for anybody who is lucky enough to be hired here.

They have a clear path to promotion, but also support employees who transition into industry. It is hard work, but rewarding and leads to many opportunities.

Not a great place for experienced people to join
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  nationalOctober 1, 2018
I joined EY during a hiring surge in IT security. They didn't have a plan to use us all, nor integrate us all into the "mainstream" of the firm. Overall, I would have to say EY isn't a great place to work if you come with skills and experience. They want to do things in the "same old way" with a partner leading (even if they are not capable) and calling all the shots.

Better if you're a college grad, work your tail off there in hopes of being promoted, and then jump to another firm.

If you're experienced, you probably should pass on EY. You'll find it stifling and frustrating.
