EY was good for an entry level audit role but after that the time commitment increases at every level. Hard to transfer out of small offices, service lines, if your current executives need you.
Pros
Flexible hours, working area, 4 months of paternity leave!
Cons
Long hours, extended busy seasons, low mobility

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.

It's a great way to jumpstart your career but there's virtually no work/life balance. Compensation is above average for a recent college grad, but probably not for the amount of hours you're required to work. Workplace culture varies significantly across cities, service lines, and even individual teams. You're surrounded by (mostly) competent and ambitious people, most of whom are young and also recent college grads.However, I'm becoming more and more disappointed with how leadership is treating its employees. In response to the pandemic, the firm froze raises for all employees not in a promotion year. However, when it was announced the firm had record numbers despite the pandemic, a meager raise was given out right before busy season. Additionally, the firm unilaterally decided to implement an "unlimited vacation" policy starting in 2021. They claimed it was to improve work/life balance, but they failed to mention the millions they would be saving by not having to pay out accrued vacation. This feels like a slap in the face for a company who touts themselves as a caring, diverse company.To summarize, this is one of the best methods to jumpstart your career, but expect to work long hours in exchange, and definitely don't expect the leadership to care.
Pros
Great learning experiences, Surrounded by young peers, Great way to get exposed to many different companies/industries
Cons
Work/life balance, Excessive hours, Poor leadership

Typical day at work includes responding to client needs, managing expectations and supporting the understanding of executives and coaching staff. Responsible for re-working documentation to comply with new audit quality standards with little to no coaching or guidance. Pressure to meet higher quality standards with the same or less staff/senior resources. Little to no meaningful engagement or recognition from executives as they do not have an appreciation for the details of procedures performed.
Pros
Job security, promotions, routine policies/procedures, access to resources
Cons
Poor recognition, low salary, high stress

Toxic work culture. Benefits and pay were pretty good. Too many hours and the expectation of nights and weekends means they get to take over your life whenever they feel like it.

A great place to work with great clients but don't expect anything but a lot of stress.The technologies used make it harder to get your work done which is frustrating many times.

Put in your time, make senior then leave unless you plan to stay and make partner. Winners are losers here because you almost always have to pick up other people's work. People are still getting promoted regardless of low performance and high performers are paid very little more than low performers which makes all the great people leave. No guidance, no appreciation whatsoever!!! It is ALL about the budget and margin and you will be forced to eat hours without being told so directly. Moreover, if you are bad luck, you will be put on the worst client and stuck there or working under manager who is lazy and belittles fellow employee.
Pros
Diversity, resume builder, flexibility, challenging work, great learning curve
Cons
Long hours, bad management, toxic work environment, and pay is way below market

I worked with a great set of individuals. I I learned how to audit both private and public clients. The workplace culture was laid back but professional.

EY has a fast paced, challenging work environment. You are constantly learning from others and simultaneously coaching those after you. I worked on a great team that was flexible and encouraging.

EY Edinburgh: horrible culture; long unpaid hours; VERY political; hierarchy driven; relocated across the UK in hard to get to places with no help booking travel or accommodation; the amount of people that join to get their CA and just leave once qualified is astonishing; you will be treated as a resource, not a human; the business is constantly winning clients but people are leaving so the pressure is immense. Pro's: My prison sentence at EY Edinburgh office has ended I have a new job now that I am qualified.

"A better working place". EY was a great experience for me. It's a place where I've develop competences and knowledge. I've learned about integrity, organised working place and team work. I've really enjoy working on this company. It's a great factor on my personal development and professional career.

EY (orlando/south florida) office had the worst culture & work environment you could ever imagine. The culture was competitive & no one took ownership over their work.

Great company if you want a fast paced environment, chance to learn a high amount of volume, network with top accounting professionals and gain early career leadership opportunities. However, this is definitely not a set schedule type of environment. If you want to be successful here, be prepared to work around the clock anytime of the year. However, to compensate their employees for long hours they do have an outstanding PTO/Vacation policy you wont get elsewhere. This is an amazing "job" to have but very difficult to see this job turning into a career for most people.

Long hours during busy season but tons of flexibility in the summer months. There are many opportunities to learn however they often are not exactly what you would want to be doing. You do not get much say in the clients or industry you work on.

Top-management at EY emphasized a culture for work/life balance, but in actuality, many teams did not allow staff and seniors to pursue that balance. This was the case during busy season and non-busy season. In addition, one was obligated to eat with their teams at lunch at the audit table and have a work-in lunch. It was not encouraged for team members to grab lunch out of the office and have an actual hour lunch break.

EY is a great company to work for primarily due to accounting exposure for various clients/industry. Although its exposures are great, there are short amount of time to grasp and once you started to familiarize its process, you will be jumped into another big project.
Pros
Exposure, Great Opportunities
Cons
Flexibility is always an issue
