EY Employee Review

Good experience but lots of travel for most client-facing positions

Workplace culture is geared toward aggressive, proactive type A persons. Great place if you thrive by leading within large teams and don't mind lots of travel. So much client time is expected that regular offices are not provided. Hoteling is used instead, requiring one to reserve cubicle space at the office building when needed. Long hours are the norm, though the company tries to encourage working smart rather than just having more face-time. Networking with management and clients is highly important to succeed. Management expects people to drive their own career development, though they have a system to offer quarterly feedback. As with many consulting firms, some managers and higher-ups are helpful and others can be jerks.

Good stepping stone in career. May risk to be a generalist instead of specialist. Friendly work environment and culture with born and bred EY colleagues.

The workload and hours will test your perseverance, but the learning curve is great. The culture is great, and you will be surrounded by energetic and interesting people. Upper management are impressive leaders.
