Felt lost

lost for few weeks of working as associate, there isnt proper onboarding process, most of the colleagues are busy so you got to find your own way on how to figure things. most of the days is daunting.

Pros

Good remuneration

Cons

no guided training/bootcamp for new hires

Stressful environment

Staff underpaid, difficult to claim OT, a lot of work, managers blaming on staff without finding out the truth, management push you to work aggressively, need to work on weekends, bad for health

Good place to start

EY is definitely a place that is fast-paced. Not for everyone but they do provide steep learning curve which I personally enjoy. Stress, of course but worth the experience.

Fast paced and stressful workplace

Lacking in staff is always an issue and may have to overtime alot of time during work. Need to be able to adapt to new situations and most of all need good luck to ensure you have good seniors.

Colleague is fine but management is terrible.

Colleague is fine but management is terrible. You can’t slow down. You can’t tell the management that you can’t keep up. No one (from the upside) is willing to listen.

Competitive with fast paced environment

An ideal environment to learn and have a clear career path growth. One must learn to have a proper task prioritization in order to work efficiently in this field of work

Job enjoyment depends on team you are put on. If senior is good can be fun. No work life balance.

Job enjoyment depends on engagement team and seniors. If seniors are willing to spend time and teach can be fun. No work life balance. Tons of useless training wasting time. Instead they should spend the resources on hiring more people and try to keep the seniors so they're more seniors to guide the juniors.

Pros

Free coffee, good brand name

Cons

No work life balance, Bunch of pointless training, performance review is tedious, they should figure out a way to keep good seniors

Great place to intern

Friendly coworkers and seniors are willing to teach. Mostly went home on time, but had to work on a few public holidays to meet deadlines. Great place to intern overall.

Non-toxic but can be political

Your performance is highly dependant on your managers. You may be putting a lot of hours to complete a task, but if your manager feels tht you are not putting enough hours, the perception lingers around the department would be that you are not having enough interest to grow. You are expected to self learn eventhough most of the things are learnt hands on during the engagement. Even if you're a first timer, you are expected to be Mr./Mrs Know-it-All. Nevertheless, bullying cases are rarely and almost none to be heard of since they hv a specific center for anyone to report such incident. Partners are knowledgeble and kind..but since the work itself is fast paced and almost everyone glorifies busy-ness as good performance, managers hv strong control over the no. of jobs you are assigned to and partners are too busy to listen to the staffs other than the managers.

Fast-paced, competitive but lots of room for learning & growth. Overall work allocation can be stressful and overwhelming, and expected to work overtime most of the time.

Pros

Room for growth - progression & promotion possible every year

Cons

Stressful, no work-life balance

Long hours but fruitful and fast learning environment

This is the best place for every young person to invest in their professional development at the start of their career. Put in the hours and you will benefit from your career in the long-run.

Typical accounting firm worklife

Long working hours but you might have a downtime sometimes. Helpful colleagues/seniors which will guide you. Higher expectations when you are seniors but overall experience is okay. Progression every year and bonus is okay.

Pros

Helpful colleagues

Cons

Not much benefit, long working hours
