    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Good benefits
    2) Good exposure and great first professional job -looks great on resume

    Cons

    1) There is no such thing as work life balance! be prepared to live at work!
    2)Absolutely horrible culture especially the FSO (financial audits) department - avoid going into that department. Choose TAG (non financial industry - such as manufacturing, food, retail etc.) if you can.

    Advice to Management

    EY prides itself on "career development for employees" - absolutely disagree!!! If you want to end your career at EY, just say NO to a project for which you believe doesn't contribute to your future!
