Can be good and bad at times

It all depends on the team you're on. I've had good managers and bad ones. Most people are interested in seeing you develop, but you have to put in a lot of hours no matter what. Not a job for the fainthearted but worth it if you stay in the long-term. A lot of learning opportunities and exposure to big name clients. Long and stressful busy season but it makes you appreciate the slower times of year.

Information Overload

Be prepared to work long hours on a variety of clients. Managers often don't have the time and/or willingness to help you and are always acting with a secret agenda.

Pros

Pay, Experience, Learning

Cons

Long Hours, No Work/Life Balance, Poor Managers

Opportunities to work with cutting edge technology products

EY's product culture is changing the way technology can handle the traditional service delivery culture in the big 4. There are lot of opportunities to wok on cutting edge technology products. The devops, agile culture helps create a very fast paced, exciting work culture.

You already know what public accounting is like

But it really depends on your team whether this experience will make or break you. I didn't feel supported by my team and I didn't see myself advancing beyond a first year. Seniors have to take disrespect from everyone. I don't think it's possible to have a life outside of work in this field. The only mistake I made when leaving was not expressing how absolutely draining this job is mostly because of understaffing.

Pros

fitness fund, prestige, cell phone plan reimbursement up to $60, dinner allowance during busy season, latest technology

Cons

hours, no work-life balance, some teams' leadership just want to drain you and then toss you out like trash

Big 4 experience

Most of us get in to get out. That’s the case here. The big four will test your ability to manage high levels of stress and there is always more work to go around.

Ambiente tossico, altamente sconsigliato

EY è la classica società di consulenza vecchio stile, lontana dai dipendenti e disattenta ai bisogni personali. L'orario lavorativo è di circa 10 ore al giorno e straordinari non pagati. Il management impone delle deadline non considerando i tempi di realizzazione e i team costantemente sotto-staffati.

Pros

Buoni pasto, flex benefit, stipendi

Cons

Nessuna considerazione per la vita privata, straordinari non pagati

The experience all depends on the team and client you work with

I have worked with many different teams at EY, and the experience varies greatly from client to client, team to team. With a competent manager and decent client, the experience would be very positive. However, with an incompetent manager or terrible client, it can be miserable. Do your research on the team before joining.Also, unlimited vacation sucks.

Pros

A lot of exposures to different industries and services and flexible work schedule

Cons

Stressful work and long hours

Great job security and resources

Great training and support, but not a lot of room for growth. Eventually the call volume also starts to get to you. But besides that not a lot to complain about.

Pros

Great support

Cons

Not as much room to grow

Ambiente lavoro competitivo

Ambiente lavorativo molto competitivo, il referente del gruppo ingiustificatamente troppo oppressivo oltre che stressato, impattando sull'operato degli operatori negativamente, che oltre a gestire lo stress dell'interlocutore era costretto a gestire anche quello del proprio referente. Nel complesso però, molto utile l'opportunità lavorativa.

Pros

Buoni pasto

Cons

Stroppi cambi turno, e doppio turno

I love my team; hate management

EY is a great place to work, but I hate the engagement I'm on at the SDC. Management is out of touch and there is no work life balance! My pod lead is WONDERFUL, but it's only so much the Pod Lead can do because of Senior Management. Don't come to the SDC! I'm sure EY is amazing, but not here!

Pros

People and benefits

Cons

Poor management, no work life balance

No

I would not recommend it. If you are an experienced admin and want a challenge, this is not the place for you. Management does not care and does not listen.

Pros

Time off

Cons

Everything else

Good experience....

It was a great place to work but needs more improvement. It seems as if the bottom line is more important than the people. You have the opportunity to learn many things with EY resources. The benefits are far better than in other companies.

Pros

Inclusive and holidays are off

Cons

work life balance - hours can get pretty bad (overwhelming)

Flexible

I love the freedom of working with this company, leaders are respectful and helpful, there is really no down side to this job. The job pay is decent, could be better but on the up side don’t have to pay for transportation or lunch, so it’s balanced in that way.

Highly intense

Non-stop action throughout the year; plenty of learning opportunitiesExpected to self manage work/life and work/work balance (I.e., will push you until you push back)
