Working in public accounting anywhere is going to require long hours but you will be rewarded with opportunity and great pay/benefits. The challenging work and breadth of experience is worthwhile but you may find yourself looking for better work/life balance after a few years.

EY is a good company to start a career for accounting student. You will get to learn a lot at your daily work. However, the hardest part of the job is the lack of work/life balance.

Hardest part of the job was trekking to Canary Wharf, which has good facilities but is soulless. Friendly colleagues. Came in as an experienced hire and found senior staff had clear favourites - difficult to break in.

Such a poor environment with poor leadership. It lacks support from multiple dimension and full of office politics. Unless your lucky and work with someone who really knows what they are doing AND willing to coach you, your screwed. Such a double standard place where they consistently ask you to make a better margin but not giving you any resource...I can keep going all day long And

EY is a great place to work and a good platform to launch your career. The team I worked for was great with a lot of experienced staff. There is a lot of scope for growth and various opportunities are available for go-getters. The work-life balance is very difficult though as the role I was in was very demanding and required me to be very flexible with work days and work timings.
Pros
The brand, the various opportunies for growth and development, secondment opportunities, training and learning
Cons
Work-life balance is difficult to maintain, micro management by a few team managers

Great opportunity to work at Big 4 but it's very cutthroat and demands a lot of time. If your direct boss is unorganized or sucks at his/her job, then you have to manage up and go above him/her to be successful.
Pros
Great benefits.
Cons
Lacks work/life balance.

EY has endless resources for learning. Expect to work hard, and it is best to live relatively close to work. There is no shortage of challenging assignments.

No work life balance. Very corporate mindset and the people are very cut throat. Some of the senior managers are very unprofessional and take out their personal issues on you.

Our offices are open plan which makes for a very approachable and connected working environment. We have flexible working hours with of 8 hours a day; however, most employees work 12 to 13 hour days on most occasions. My technical knowledge, ability to team and to lead has grown in leaps and bounds. I have learned to work under tight deadlines in a stressful environment and with difficult clients successfully. Our ultimate goal to consistently provide Exceptional Client Service. Self development is highly encouraged and there are endless opportunities which energises employees and makes for a happy and positive culture. Dealing with a new client and new engagement in terms of the kind of work you previously were involved in. One needs to learn very quickly in how to handle the new client and to grasp the technical aspects of the work to be provided. This usually results in many hours spent outside normal working hours and over weekends to prep and reach the standard required in order to deliver Exceptional Client Service. Meeting new people from across the world and constantly learning something new everyday.
Pros
Self development and growth
Cons
Not compensated for hours above 8 hours a day.

You work a lot, but you learn a lot. The New Orleans office in particular has very good people with good leadership. I would not leave if I didn't have a personal reason for which to leave the company.

The subject is EY's slogan. If you make it to EY you will see many opportunities for career development and advancement. Working in Big4 does not mean you need to scarify your time and work for long hours. You will still able to enjoy Work Life Balance if you know how to manage your time well.
Pros
Good reward pacakage and promotions
Cons
Avalaible to promote and upgrade too fast can kill the self motivation and competitive
