    I have been working at EY as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisors are kind and intelligent with sufficient leadership and vision. Very friendly working environment. High salary! I learn a lot on daily basis.

    Cons

    No cons. I like working in EY and will recommend EY to my colleagues when they seek for job opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any complaint.

    I worked at EY full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    EY looks great on a resume but not much else. Some opportunity to meet genuine people but mostly full of people willing to manipulate you for their benefit

    Cons

    Poor pay, play the politics game. Often stuck between people trying to throw eachother under the bus. Some higher management is completely disrespectful and will not so much as talk to you and will ignore you. This position is being an assistant to assistants and doing the job noone else wants to do.

    Pros

    As long as you get your work done - no one cares what you do with your time (of course you still need to make your chargeable hours)

    Cons

    Its still a Big 4 - and so the culture is cold and cut throat

    I have been working at EY (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a great inclusive culture. Multicultural and strives to do more on gender equality. Flexibility with work and personal life arrangements. Great fitness allowance.

    Cons

    Difficult to provide feedback/reviews for management. Would be nice if performance reviews factored in subordinates feedback.

    I have been working at EY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good group to learn from. Get an opportunity to work on a range of diligence, M&A, and restructuring files. Allows for easy expansion of breadth of knowledge.

    Cons

    Compensation is tied directly to audit compensation and is significantly under market value. Bonus is not close to other boutique investment banks.

    Advice to Management

    To retain top staff, they must implement a more competitive compensation program. Can easily be working 80+ hours/week for a base salary of $70,000 to $80,0000 and a 10% bonus.

    Pros

    Approx 3 weeks starting paid vacation (+ the option to take an additional 2 weeks off unpaid vacation) . That's pretty damn good. Flexible hours as long as you can get your work done on time. Great people!

    Cons

    None yet. We will see...

    Pros

    A great group of people work here. They expect a lot from you, however they do give support when needed.

    Cons

    My biggest problem was the lack of work life balance, however you should know that before yoy start. Your colleagues expect you to put the job first above all other commitments in your life.

    Advice to Management

    They shouldn't promote the fact that they offer a great "work life balance" to attract young employees. Accounting firms actually offer the exact opposite of that and they shouldn't make young employees believe that they will have a lot of free time and excel at their posistion.

    Pros

    Good working environment, benefits. People act in a professional manner, and most of the time there is work/life balance. Good location. More budget to take care of their employees. Well-established business processes.

    Cons

    Speed of advancement slower than a smaller company. Annual salary increase can be small. On average the salary is less than working in an IT company. Some employees with seniority may not fit their current job anymore but unspoken policy would help them stay.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful for the managers to do some research on what is normally expected from a certain position and how people do it in the industry (IT). Doing lots of work does not equal to doing a good job.

    I worked at EY as an intern

    Pros

    Working environment is excellent. Each team member has specific responsibilities.

    Cons

    Workload may be too large, but I guess this is a routine in consulting firms.
