Worked here 15 plus years. Retiring in April. Amazing place to work! I would recommend EY to anyone. In a world of so much uncertainty, this firm provided me with the comfort and growth I look for in a corporate business.
Pay, benefits, company perks
I didnt take advantage of all the amazing opportunities.
The job upon starting was great! I quickly learned (inside of 6 months) that the person I was primarily supporting did not like me. Never came to me directly; went to admin Manager. The training did not set me up for success; definitely for failure. I didn't know what I didn't know.. Definitely people working there that were untouchable and some of the most challenging people to work with (these people were in administrative positions - NOT EXECUTIVES!). Literally, had to gift folks in certain position to help me do my job. I was dumb-founded. High-level and visible position and was trained for two weeks. The person who trained received a promotion and just wanted to move on. I did have a mentor but because we didn't really relate to one another (culturally different), a waste of time. But the person was able to use that as credit to them working and being a team player. I was told I did not engage enough by admin manager... If I work with you one on one why go to someone outside of the group. I was encouraged to be "too friendly" and it was something I failed at miserably...mainly because I don't have the knack of being fake. Was moved to a different department. Worked out much better. However, it was lower tier and it literally was like crabs in a bucket. cliques and favorites. If you are not a big social person you have to navigate very carefully. Meaning; be everything to everybody. Just wanted to do job and go home. Others opinions of you became a part of your review and led to fake chats and "Hi's & Byes". you could be interrupted a gazillion times - more...
Lots of food and snacks, great perks, good pay
work life balance, terrible communication, too much bureaucracy
This is the best place to start your career. You learn so much and can easily parlay your experience here into fantastic industry jobs. Know that you will be working long hours at times, but the Company is great about letting you take your time off during the slower periods. I'd highly recommend at least getting a taste of the Big 4 experience!
Great people, heavy workload, poor work/life balance - at least this is my experience in the audit practice. However, as everyone says, it is truly a great launch if moving up the ranks in a company (EY or not) is what you want to do. Over the year I worked here, I just discovered it's not what I want out of life.
People, perks, development
Work load, work/life balance
Ppl wouldn’t show up on time and then would call out 3 hours later. Constant running around (which helped me lose weight) but when there is only 1 elevator for 1500 ppl in the same building was frustrating so I had to use the stairs and the building was 20 stories tall. No accountability so everyone was pointing fingers at everyone else.
Had to pay for parking-even as a temp when I 1st started
My position at allowed me to use a vast array of skills from design to programming. I am heartbroken that the reason it's over was due to COVID-19 affecting the company financially. Contractors, in any organization, tend to be the first to be let go. Still, I wouldn't trade my time there for anything.
EY, probably similar to other Big 4 firms, has so many tools, talent, and experience at your fingertips. I was able to see large and small clients with groundbreaking technology next to the brightest in my field. I would 100% go back to work with them.
Pros: Big 4 branding to carry with for a lifetime. Good trainings Cons: Really depends on your reporting manager/leader. Overall some great minds to work alongside. Stretch hours during peak times of the engagement.
The EY environment provides a balanced but challenging atmosphere in which an individual can actively succeed and thrive, whilst simultaneously advancing their career.
Free Lunches, long lunch break, great teams
long hours, stressful at times
US job seekers should be aware that you are always at risk of being laid off in favor of cheaper labor overseas. Good vacation and benefits. Salaries tend to be average.
