    Pros

    You get to work with mostly young people with similar views and they are super willing to help you learn.

    Cons

    The expectations are really unrealistic and no one is really happy. I hate that they promote the designation to much but it takes 5 years of unhappiness to obtain. The busy season long hours and short time frames to complete projects clearly cause a lot of stress for most.

    Advice to Management

    It isn't really their fault that this is the case at EY. It's just the structure and way of the business. All they can do is be supportive and realistic.

    Pros

    Excellent mentorship/counseling program, good feedback system, I always felt like my manager was looking out for my best interests. Definitely a place where you can chart your own growth and make requests which will be taken seriously.

    Cons

    Wasn't terribly fond of co-workers - many were nerdy, not as intelligent as I would expect in high ranking positions, or some were rude. Work life balance is often an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Continue ensuring you hire the best and brightest - this is what the E&Y reputation consists of, but in some areas, I'm not sure it is true.

    I worked at EY as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Plenty of work to be done, so there's not much downtime and you're always learning. The work is similar to what a staff 1 would do, so you get a slight preview of the full-time job.

    -I got to travel during the first 3 weeks of my internship

    -Worked with 7 different clients, gaining tons of exposure to different teams, clients, and industries

    -Lots of chances for feedback; there are weekly intern experience meetings, and each intern is assigned a counselor and peer buddy.

    Cons

    - Work can be monotonous at times, but the staff you work with can make up for it.

    - Experience is determined by the teams you worked with. I never had a "bad" team during my internship though

    Advice to Management

    I'd say perhaps there could be more opportunities to explore other career paths in EY, but my internship experience was really good overall and I don't have any complaints.
