A very down to earth approach, versus other Prof Service Companies. Enjoyed the directness of the Partners and their willingness to help. Love the results oriented approach work environment. It was all about , "what you did versus what you say culture".Would have never left, but they went through a Cap Gemini take over and all of the senior managers left the company.I feel the consulting group can be a major competitor to the Advertising industry. However, they need to figure out the creative capability and how they build that into their offering. It can not be a plug and play approach. As data, insight, strategy, creative and media channel are a continuum that drives an over Strategic Communications approach.
Pros
work environment
Cons
partner track

I found that depending on the team and the management of the team dictates your work/life balance and whether you have to deal with bad upper-level management, and be at risk of running an engagement with no support and having your management pin their mistakes on you to save their unsecured jobs seeing EY has gone through multiple rounds of layoffs in the past couple years and put the work culture on egg shells. EY needs to get it together, otherwise you’ll see a lot of people leave; note, I’ve heard from many people seeking other employment from EY. Good luck to all.
Pros
Benefits, Compensation
Cons
Poor local office leadership / Inexperienced upper level management

Pay is great compared to industry. Overall, you loosely have the ability to control your own destiny within the firm however I do think recently there is an elevated emphasis on office politics and an added sense of bureaucracy. You can proactively make it a much better place to work by getting yourself involved in non-project work or activities or you could just be a project focused person. Overall, it is an experience that you can make either better or worse for yourself based off your mentality and your willingness to network to others within the firm. Compared to my industry experience the perks are great. Overall, I would say it is a good to great place to work.
Pros
Good pay, overall good benefits
Cons
Work Life Balance could be bad, some misalignment in management

People are great, but still just a number. Big 4 overall is a good step in a career. Tons of mobility, ability to gain valuable experience quickly. Advisory is different than audit. Large clients but you do the same thing every year

Management for ESS were messy, we were treated differently than the PPED's. Example - for a long time, we were not suppose to wear open toe sandals, but the women partners would wear them all the time. I actually enjoyed what I did and the hardest part of the job was getting signatures, which was part of the job. Telework was always an issue, most EA's would always inform their PPED of their location and then inform management, but of course management would have something negative to say, like I didn't give you permission. Of course, with most people that didn't go over well.
Cons
Healthcare costs

Fast-paced and challenging work, but well compensated in money, benefits and time off. Three is lots of room for advancement and flexible work arrangements.

It was a great experience. It was my first exposure to the accounting field and I learned a tremendous amount on client relationships, developed technical skills and made life time friends. It was an amazing work environment.

EY was a high paced environment, but definitely rewarded those who worked hard. I was fortunate to travel often, and gain a lot of experience. I had gone as high as I could go in my section and looked for experience and challenges outside of EY.

Great place to start your career, but not sustainable in the long term due to burn out. Culture is very cut throat, and stressful, very pressure filled.

I do not have anything positive to say about EY. Long hours, low pay, extensive travelling, very little work life balance. No flexibility. Not a great place unless you are a Partner.
