Good place to spend some time but maybe not for the long term

4.0 of 5 stars

July 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

fair compensation and decent benefits
lots of training opportunities
access to top professionals in tax and accounting

Downers

flexibility is variable based on location and team
hours can be long
in M&A and advisory groups, hours and schedule can be unpredictable and variable

Comments

EY is a good place to build up a career but be aware of what you want to get out of it and if you are in certain advisory or M&A groups, exit opportunities can be limited

Great opportunity

very long and demanding hours. Can lose a sense of a work life balance.

Comments

Work hard and stay attentive and you will do fine.

Ideal Place to Build One's Career

5.0 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Tax | Boston, MA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Compensation, culture, work/life balance, and opportunities within the firm.

Downers

Having too many opportunities within the firm.

Comments

If you are looking for an ideal place to build your career, go here. If you are looking for something akin to prestige, exclusivity, or entitlement, you may be looking at the wrong firm and the wrong industry.

Challenging, rewarding accounting work with great support and fair compensation

4.3 of 5 stars

Mid-level in Advisory Services | New York, NY | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Doing work I really enjoy, interacting with people at high levels, being challenged but also supported

Downers

It's a job; seeing leaders try to blame things on others; "boy's club" environment

Comments

It totally depends on the type of work you do; I can highly recommend my specific group and the specific people I work with, but I have no idea what most of the people in my firm do; if you are passionate about accounting and want to be challenged and supported, I think my specific group is great, but there are so many different factors that could affect whether a job makes sense or not

Lots of opportunity for growth and learning!

4.3 of 5 stars

Other in Audit & Assurance | Los Angeles, CA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

the opportunities to learn and grow

Downers

old stagnant thinking.

You cannot match the experience gained from working with a variety of client in assurance at EY - the experience is a knowledge accelerator!

4.4 of 5 stars

Partner/Principal in Audit & Assurance | Houston, TX | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Opportunities to grow and learn daily - always increasing the value of my experiences/resume

Downers

Demanding assurance environment (but cannot change the nature of the capital markets)

Comments

Outstanding culture - people are our biggest asset

Intense work, great opportunities.

4.1 of 5 stars

Experienced in Audit & Assurance | Salt Lake City, UT | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Incredible exposure to well known clients and high performing executives. On the job training is excellent, dealing with complex accounting.

Downers

Prone to long hours. Having to figure out how to staff multiple jobs with limited resources.

Comments

The compensation may be low at first, but the growth can be significant. You are expected to lead and supervise relatively quickly. You get to interact with many levels of management.

Entry-level in Audit & Assurance

3.0 of 5 stars

McLean, VA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Downers

The hours. And not just the hours, but the unpredictability of those hours and client commitments.

Good company. Good culture.

4.0 of 5 stars

March 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Good, smart people. Big clients. Interesting and challenging work. Good vacation.

Downers

Low pay for the amount of hours and complexity of work compared to other consulting companies performing the same services.

Comments

Work here to get good management experience and build upon your communication skills. Will take a while to get specific expertise and make it to partner, though you can make a lot of money as a partner, but you will have to work hard for it and make a number of personal sacrifices.

Good employer, but could do a bit more.

3.0 of 5 stars

December 2014 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Friendly and smart people/teams, work/life flexibility is great, additional time off (i.e. EY firm holidays) for Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day and Thanksgiving

Downers

Cost of benefits too high, old technology, salary not competitive with market, no bonuses for core business service groups (i.e. non client facing roles) and limited mobility options.

Comments

There are many facets to this company that are positive, but make sure that you want to work in an accounting firm/industry, as it could limit potential opportunities down the line.
