Promotion path in audit and tax is fast and common. New office allows for greater work flexibility. Employees stay for the great people and culture.

    Pay is less than industry, and people are not rewarded for hard work, as it is expected.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
