In general a good company with many people who work hard and want to do the right thing. There are some bad actors, and many people who get ahead not on merit, but based on their connections in the firm. Rumor is that some preference given to those from the same immigrant groups based on a very unscientific study.
Pros
Salary is decent
Cons
Low bonus, promotions are not merit based

Good employer but very demanding. The work life balance is rough and its hard to wind down after work. A typical work week is 55 hours plus. Be prepared to travel 80% plus.

Each day brings with it new opportunities as the nature of the work is dynamic (i.e., projects are different and allow for growth). Corporate culture is one that is collaborative (versus competitive) which supports teaming.
Pros
Opportunities to grow skillset
Cons
Work-life balance

I enjoy working with EY. The environment is very relaxed and trusting. I don't feel like there is much room for growth unless you are in a finance related role.
Pros
Benefits, salary, flexible hours
Cons
Nowhere for growth unless you're in finance related roles

Good culture; internal core business professionals have limited opportunity for advancement. Pay is decent, but mostly front loaded (lower 401k match benefits).

EY has a lot of opportunity for new hires to start and grow a career. Now is a great time to join consulting practice as its growth has shot up a ton in the last 5 years.

Great firm to work for. Never a dull moment. Opportunity for advancement if one holds a degree in accounting. Must be able to work more than 40+ weekly.

I recommend this company if you are looking for a challenge and willing to learn in a fast pace work environment. Long hours and a lot of travel. This is due to the nature of the client base and location.
