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.
Pros
Pay, benefits, company perks
Cons
I didnt take advantage of all the amazing opportunities.

Typical day at work consists of settling in and fielding requests of the Accountants, Lawyers and Partners of the firm. Fast paced, customer driven and customer needs-driven workloads are the basis of the job. EY is a private firm that operates by a set of rules that aren't always fully disclosed to it's employees. This can be a great thing (ie. Extended Holidays and Perks) and sometimes a not so great thing (uncertainty with job expectations and where the company is headed in the NEAR future). Management is present but not always as accessible as needed considering the demanding nature of the office. There is a strict chain of command that must be followed as well. Culture of the workplace is progressive and diverse. Hardest part of the job is Hierarchical Politics. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping people.
Pros
Diverse and creative work environment
Cons
Advancement oppurtunities are limited.

The firm top management provided lip service to the idea that all employees were valued. At office level the partners I supported were unwilling to provide useful feedback.

Good learning experience at E&Y. I started out certain that I would thrive in the professional and prestigious environment of E&Y but I learned after a year and a half that it wasn't really the best type of environment for me to spend my career.

Nice people & facilities. Offices very new & modern. Everyone very helpful to new hires. Lots of churn in employees though. They are hiring a lot of kids right out of college. They are also letting go a lot of older staff. Audit team members are typically given a laptop and told that is their "office." They will be expected to do most of their work at the client site. Tax team members will have extremely intensive work periods followed by relative calm weeks. If you are looking for an administrative or staff type position dont bother as they are starting to outsource all of those type positions. Especially if you are north of 35 or so...
Pros
Nice office & people. Managers usually very approachable.
Cons
Somewhat age-ist hiring.

Ernst & Young is a fast paced tax firm. Every day was go go go. I like to be busy all the time so I enjoyed the fast pace. They work 7 days a week. I was able to use all of my skills at E&Y. I booked travel arrangements, catered lunches and booked function halls and events.

Working in a team atmosphere in the management consulting and research areas I had an opportunity to work with highly skilled people who encouraged knowledge sharing and personal advancement. Some work days were long when working on deadlines but there were often rewards to compensate. The only reason I left this position was because I relocated too far away to commute and I have regretted it ever since. A great place to work and a great company culture.
