Resourceful colleagues and open work environment
From my own perspective, EY provides a great opportunity to leverage my past experience and utilize what I have learned from B school. The most attractive part of this company is its open air and efficient communication between lines, both top down and bottom up.

Good place to start a career
I have worked on annual audit, IPO audit, SFC compliance audit, and other assurance engagements such as Banking Return Review, Operational Audit Review etc.

I learnt management skill in EY.For some medium size engagements, I am in charge of the field work, guide, delegate, and review the work of junior team members. I also monitor the engagement team against the budget and time line.

great place
Pros – You see more in public accounting than any other experience you can get in the finance world. EY Detroit specifically had the best culture of Big 4 firms, focusing on work-life balance and caring for you as an individual.

Cons – The nature of public accounting is high paced and can be long hours. While the majority of people you work with are helpful and enjoyable, you may get stuck on a job with someone who is not.


Advice to Senior Management – There must be a reverse review process, so employees can provide reviews for supervisors. I had a number of seniors and/or managers who were poor leaders, but who got good reviews from superiors based on limited interaction.
