Decent experience

3.0 of 5 stars

April 2019 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Met and worked with some great people with a real interest in mentor ship. Lots of variety of work and interesting projects.

Downers

Staffed long term on a terrible project with poor leadership. Difficult to feel like you have control over staffing. Company policies don’t live up to people focused culture.

Advice to Candidates

Make sure you understand the client needs of the office you’re looking at. Likely those types of firms will be your clients.

Intern

4.0 of 5 stars

April 2019 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

- Interviews were well organised;
- People were quite nice

Downers

- Even interns often have long hours;

- internship is quite stressful due to a lot of work

- Internal mobility is limited

Advice to Candidates

It's a quite good company to work for, nice environment and nice people.

EY

4.0 of 5 stars

January 2019 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

knowlegable co-workers
prestige firm -- looks good on resume
great work experience
excellent benefits (though for most some vacation time often goes unused)
pay is competitive

Downers

long hours for almost all service lines, not just audit or tax
hoteling eliminated having a dedicated office or cubicle
lots of travel -- many people spend 80% of time at client site
career path oriented to very aggressive people; up or out mentality
personal evaluations now focus not just on utilization but on profit margin

Advice to Candidates

Great opportunities if you are a natural networker and thrive on building relationships; otherwise, you will hate the work environment after a while

Most people will never reach partner, but it's good for getting 2-3 years public accounting experience for the CPA

Associate

4.0 of 5 stars

October 2018 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Great pay and opportunity to grow as a professional in a great environment

Downers

Associates can travel a lot which may become burdensome after a while

Advice to Candidates

Amazing training, many opportunities are opened up outside of accounting

Great firm, but getting too big to foster internal growth

4.0 of 5 stars

September 2018 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

-highly credentialed staff at the manager level
-collaborative
-great brand

Downers

- can have a bit of a bro/frat culture at the staff level.
- canceling rotation program/which is poor for development
- not an integrated company, each office has its own culture, thus not that easy to transfer internally unless you start your career in New York City.

Advice to Candidates

In light of the review, still worth starting career at EY due to peer reputation.

Risk Advisory

3.0 of 5 stars

August 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

I've encountered a handful of smart and dedicated people. The firm strives to maintain strong relationships with clients. Team-oriented culture in many cases. There are opportunities to be a part of truly unique and transformational projects.

Downers

Internal technology is sub-par. Internal politics at the Mgr and Sr. Mgr levels need to be well played if one wants to be seen as successful. Most projects I've been a part of felt menial.

Advice to Candidates

Your experience will vary based on the team you are hired into and the political alignment of the leader of your competency/practice.

Good firm, great people

5.0 of 5 stars

July 2018 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

People are generally great, top notch training opportunities (within accounting), good mix of big and small clients, looks great on the resume if you intend to stay in accounting and maybe finance

Downers

Flex is not as great as they promote - face time to "show you're working", can get stuck on bad jobs/clients, hours can be rough in busy season, compensation could be better at lower levels

Advice to Candidates

Do your diligence on the field you're entering into. If you want accounting this is a great start. If you're considering finance, you'll probably learn more valuable skills in a corporate finance or other type of role.

April 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

EY

5.0 of 5 stars

April 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Generally the people are great; intelligent, friendly and focused on the good of the team.

Downers

Hours can be long depending on the team you work in.

Advice to Candidates

Self-starters will succeed; those who are looking for a very traditional firm or a standard, easy 9-5 will struggle.
