    Pros

    Ey has astonishing networking opportunities. I was able to network with CEO's CFOs, and other high management employees of some of our clients.
    Sure we're busy and don't have much of a work life balance, but I have the flexibility to show up late every now and then and make it to other personal commitments etc.

    People are amazing here. Lots of travel opportunities.

    Long hours in audit - But hey, we're young and we all gotta work hard at the start right?
