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.

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.

5.0 of 5 stars

March 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

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

Downers

GDS focus is mostly on headcount and growth, not quality, agility, responsiveness and proven agile principles.

Advice to Candidates

the premier experience in the Big Four these days, but your actual experience will vary by country, office, and service line based on your leadership team quality.

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.

EY Tax, Central US

4.0 of 5 stars

November 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Good people to work with. Interesting work and great training.

Downers

Working all the time. Top heavy organization. Measured on metrics outside of your control

Advice to Candidates

It is a great place to start a career and get experience, but don't try to make partner. They are the unhappiest group of rich people I've ever seen.
