Culture, vision and mission, embracing digital and seeking to disrupt self rather than get disrupted.

EY Risk Experience

3.0 of 5 stars

January 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

A lot of people are very intelligent. The company operates as both a free-market for getting assigned projects or there is an experience manager.

Downers

Certain offices are more diverse than others, some coworkers are not that comfortable.
During busy season hours can be intense.
There is more of an expectation to give face-time in the office instead of the flexibility to work from home.

Advice to Candidates

Network with senior managers and managers to get put on projects.

High-level work

5.0 of 5 stars

November 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Team oriented and welcoming environment to learn. Firm invests in its employees.

Morale taken a hit with austerity measures. Big firm lack of transparency regarding pay and bonuses.

Understand how you fit into the system and love the team environment. Learn how to excel through hard-work and being technically saavy but be humble. Ask for feedback and seek out the areas you want to develop. EY can be a gem if you make the most of it.

Professional Accounting firm with great brand recognition

3.0 of 5 stars

January 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

People,culture, brand recognition in the market, variety of work and type of projects

Downers

Same low compensation as at other Big4 companies, very segmented and predetermined business lines, almost no chance to change your business line at Senior Consultant / Manager level

Should be seen as a good plattform to start your career. If you are willing to concentrate on a particular competence (like business modelling) you can also persuit a long-term career at this firm
