Great place to learn and grow, job security and pay is fair. They have tried to support during Covid but the work life balance is barely existent. They ensured we had the tools, internet coverage etc but their are no boundaries now.
Total compensation package
The hours were pretty bad year round, but you do learn a lot, which sets you up to be successful once you leave the firm. Good benefits, culture is hit or miss depending on your engagements. A good place to spend a couple of years, learn and leave.
EY is a great firm that cares about their employees. I have been with the firm 24 years and they have always made me feel as if I matter. EY has made Forbes top 100 list for over 25 years and it is well deserved.
People First, Great Benefits
Adversarial, judgmental, exclusive, overly-hierarchical, lacking understanding or encouragement, exceptionally negative and toxic work environment
I had a number of good and challenging engagements that I performed well at. and received good feedback for. However, my practice lead and performance manager took a disliking to me and continually belittled and marked down key work, was completely lacking in encouragement or support, yet who sought all decisions to be centralized through them.Exceptionally toxic work environment.
Compensation; global opportunities
See above critique.
Great place to start off or land mid- career. Advancing to top PPMDD level is a bit vague and there are obviously no guarantees. If that's your goal, make absolutely certain you want the role - if so, expect to blink and be retirement age. The firm is a great place to learn, but people here are mostly "takers."
Great learning opportunity, broad exposure to different engagement types
Favoritism, people don't practice what they preach
Culture and ability to grow really stands out at EY. You’re always challenged and will have support to help you succeed. Best coworkers you’ll ever have. Pay at the senior manager level salary wise is comparable to market however loses out to industry with equity and bonus (assurance)
Work life balance can be a struggle
Best work experience for me. A great team including partner. Interested in my development. Most partners have an open door policy unlike other Big 4 firms.
Work-life-balance but this is to be expected at most accounting firms
Difficult environment. If a person is in favor by a higher up, they advance, regardless of whether they deserve it. A month after I started, I was told that I was never going to get promoted bc they already had too many people at a certain band level - this is directly opposite of what the “culture” supports.
If you are in audit practice, you will be overworked and underpaid. It is just a nature of the beast. Busy season is unbearable and if you are on a difficult client, you may work 55 hours all year. Trying to switch departments will be met with resistance no matter if you are a high performer. Lots of micromanagers and nobody cares if you are stressed.
Free dinners and cab rides during busy season
Everything you can think of
There is no work/life balance at all. They make you work an insane amount of hours.There is no rationale to compensation. It's all about when and how you enter the firm. You could be a senior making $70,000 while there's a senior on your team doing the same exact things you're doing but making $80,000 because they transferred from another firm or signed their contract at a different time
During my time with the firm I was able to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge and first hand experience with a wide variety of professional services. It was a fantastic learning experience and feel fortinute for my time I was able to have with firm.
There are no free rides at EY...everyone is expected to bring their A game everyday and they are expected to pull their weight. There are no cutting corners and if you keep your head down and do well you will go far.
Paid Leave (maternity and paternity)
Long hours, sometimes often unappreciated
