Great place to work. Work is normally appreciated. Sometime very busy / stressful. Great amount of flexibility. Fair payment I would say. Overall, happy to work here.

Great plan to start your career, very good training/education while working, EY experience is unusually appreciated and well-respected by industry. Incredibly talented and hard working people with the exception of some who have questionable lack of competency/desire to work at EY. During busy season depending on your sub-service lines, no work life balance.
Pros
Flexibility, talented people
Cons
long hours, pressure/fast pace

Very much what you can expect from Big 4 consulting. You will work very hard, long hours, under very high expectations, for a wide variety of leaders that can be both good and bad, in the hopes of being promoted. And, in the end, your performance reviews and career progression/success opportunities will come down to only 2 basic "metrics". So focus intently on those 2. Partner/Principle is the pinnacle goal; you will need to be progressing to that level or you will be worked out of the organization over time. Keep in mind that in reality very very few ever make it to Partner/Principle. Most attain this through a ladder of movements between firms. Everyone else is busting it and selling, selling, selling. If you are willing to put in a ton of hours, work on a variety of projects, do whatever it takes to create and maintain positive impressions from at least 5-10 Partners who will go to bat for you, then you can make it.
Pros
Good comp; Variety of work; Some of your co-workers
Cons
Survivor Island type culture; Its all about selling

After 15 + years with the firm, the culture has taken a shift for the worse. Poor work-life balance. Unlimited vacation = no vacation. Progression is slow from Staff to Senior Manager. Few mentoring and development opportunities.

A great place to start your accounting career. Expect to work hard however. Quite a bit of politics, but if you are able to navigate and except that, you'll fit right in.

Great for jumpstarting your career. Great to stay until manager or senior manager to get experience and leadership, however once you leave you realize partners are more concerned with filling jobs and clients vs you staying with the company
Pros
Experience and exposure. Always learning
Cons
Benefits arent great, long hours

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."
Pros
Great learning opportunity, broad exposure to different engagement types
Cons
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)
Pros
Interesting work
Cons
Work life balance can be a struggle

EY is a great place to join straight out of college or after a lengthy career in consulting. However, if you are an experienced professional who has not worked for Big 4, prepare to be thrown into the deep end with very little guidance. Simple things like "who is on my team", "where does my team sit", "where do i find basic resources for my job in sharepoint/company intranet" are going to be a struggle. There is a peer counseling program in name only. I had one phone call with my peer counselor 3 months after I joined the firm, and most people I spoke to had similar experiences when they joined. There is a MAJOR learning curve and you are expected to navigate this process largely on your own. Your success will be entirely determined by currying favor with the appropriate partners who will protect you and steer you towards meaningful projects. If you don't cultivate these relationships with partners, you will be floating adrift with no direction and no client work to do. For a career consultant, EY is a solid option, for others stop and consider what you really want out of your next job.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
No guidance, very political, heavy handed administration that makes it difficult to do anything without jumping through 50 hoops

Managers lie about expectations. You will be a salesperson rather than actually delivering technical expertise to your client. You will always have to sell instead of actually consulting.
Pros
None
Cons
Lying management

Worked at 2 of the biggest consultancies, would never return to EY. Partners only look out for themselves. Politics over productivity. EY talks technology, but doesn't do technology.
Pros
True partner model
Cons
Back stabbing

Good place to get exposure to premium clients and train in yourself up in various skills. The bad is that if you are not good at firm politics and nepotism, you will hit a ceiling with your progression.
Pros
Training and exposure to premium clients
Cons
Firm culture and politics

Great people to work with. Thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and the opportunities that came my way. The people you get to work with can make or break your work experiences.

If you would like to work as a consultant on a variety of projects, then EY is a good place to work. It offers a variety of job opportunities for people in the early to mid-career moves.

EY has no work-life balance and thats the requirement of business as well. One cant blame company for this. EY helps you grow in tough environment and adds to personal and professional growth.

Significant opportunity for those that are seeking variety to their resposibilities on a day to day basis. However it is difficult to switch off from the job either out of hours or on holiday.
