Great experience. Learned a lot from very talented and gifted employees. Great interaction with senior leadership and ability to work independently once trust is gained.

As a consultant, it's difficult to have a positive work life balance anywhere, but EY seems to make it extra difficult, dependent on the group that you are in. The between Customer and the new CGP group, it is a complete political disaster, with everyone saying that one is going to re-absorb the other once one of the group's leaders comes out on top. Leadership doesn't seem to care about the impacts this has on their employees, as long as they are the most important.

Challenging engagements, you are constantly pushed beyond your comfort zone. There is a lot to learn when you reach out to folks. There are a number of people trying to mentor and help your progress in your career, formally and informally.

From what I've heard, it sounds like EY does value the health and well-being of their talent and strive to provide the best services they can for them.

Overall, the company has great culture, pay is fair but vacation time is seriously lacking. Very flexible on hours/location but advancement is difficult. Company does not distinguish between individual performance and company performance/situation. If you land on the right project, you can advance, land on the wrong project and you are stuck.

It's not about the Big 4 firms themselves as an organization but the practice group you work with on a day to day basis. One firm can have an amazing reputation as being the best place to work ever but if your practice group is run by an idiot you will be miserable. It's important to understand who you will be working with everyday. Also, there's a lot of talk and literature on the websites about moving to different practice areas. As a firm policy it is said to be an easy process but you will get resistance at every turn because it essentially ruins your groups short-term planning goals and is a pain in the butt to work around your desire to want to work in Luxembourg for 6 months.

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.

I currently work at Ernst & Young, and have had a generally positive experience. I'm assigned to one large engagement, and I've had to work on a variety of different projects related to this client. It's been hard work, and it's often been challenging, but I enjoy the opportunity. Others around me are hard working and smart. Management is generally strong and attune to new trends. I feel that the firm and the department are doing the right things. It's been great to have been part of such an organization. The hardest part of my job is dealing with abrupt deadlines, and finding that a core competency can often pin you in a certain role. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with international teams.
Pros
Constantly challenging work, international breadth, great brand recognition, smart and hard working colleagues
Cons
Poor work-life balance, difficult to move beyond a core skill set, occasional need to be excessively pushy to get results
