Great place to start a career, learn teamwork and understand what it is to work hard, efficiently and engage with wide range of people. Work life balance can be difficult and you can likely find greater compensation in other careers. In the end, you need to really enjoy the work, the people and have a sense of purpose to stick around for the long haul.
Pros
training
Cons
long hours

Nature of the work demands long hours. Management recognizes the work/life balance issue and offers “flexibility” options (additional PTO, work from home, etc.).

Worked on a variety of very large, complex and world changing pursuits in both commercial and Federal government environments. Culture is one of teaming and inclusiveness and the belief that the most diverse teams allow for the development of the best answer for Clients. Culture is hard charging and collaborative so decision making sometimes takes longer to allow for all parties to weigh in and express their opinion before a decision is made. The most enjoyable aspect of working at EY is the diverse range of experience amongst employees and the opportunity to work on projects of vast scale and high import.
Pros
Great benefits, nice offices, emphasis on teaming

EY provides many of the benefits and opportunities that people with strong career ambitions will find appealing, especially if those career ambitions are a high-ranking priority. Where EY (as the rest of the Big Four) falls short is in its culture with regard to doing the job and having a family. As a "partner culture" little consideration at the project level is given toward any semblance of work-life balance. Teams are not particularly forgiving or understanding about commitments to family or personal life. This is at ends with what senior leadership works tirelessly to convey ("we support balance")

Although you may work extremely long hours and sometimes hate what you do, the culture at EY is what makes it great. The people actually care. Your career path is clearly defined and you are almost guaranteed promotion and a raise each year.

EY has a varied work like balance which can be 40 hours with much of that time at home during the summer and upward of 80-100 hours worked during certain weeks during busy season. The culture is inclusive and you get the opportunity to work with executives on a near daily basis from the start. An abundance of client interaction occurs daily and fosters strong communication skills and networking abilities.
Pros
Ability to work from home and travel
Cons
Long work days in busy season

EY is known for their work/life balance and diversity. It's a fast-paced company, that works hard to keep up with the other top 3 competitors. Culture is very diverse and turnover is high within young accountants, getting burned out first few years of LONG hours.
Pros
Teamwork
Cons
Lacking in management support for EA's.

Your success at EY will be driven primarily by who you work with and what teams you are on. Get in with the right people and you are set. Get in with the wrong people / project you don't like and you may not have a great time at EY.
