Not bad

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
decent place to work. Good ambience. Managers are very understanding ad caring. Would highly recommend it as a place to work. The benefits are probably the best part

Good People, Bad Work life balance

All the people I worked with were lovely and very welcoming but they always seemed to be working evenings and weekends, especially third years and up.

Not for me

Probably best if you start your career here. Not so good for those coming in from elsewhere. Expectations too high and work/life not in balance. Demanding and felt like I did not belong here.

Consultancy - Tough having to repeatedly prove yourself to clients

Lots of one up man ship. Suits a certain personality type. Lots of pressure and stressful deadlines. The management structure is very loose and really being billable is the be all and end all. Tokenism towards work life balance.

The firm is very flexible and the benefits are also decent compared to competitors. The work can be challenging and you get to learn a lot. The management is also very supportive

Pros

Free Barista coffee, Flexible, progression

Cons

Not much benefits for manager and below

Not recommended

EY is fast paced & highly corporate. Strange work culture I found. To work there you need to be assertive as its cutthroat. Executive assistant jobs in there are 95% calendar management which is incredibly monotonous and can seem pointless a lot of the time as you constantly have to swivel meetings which took you a lot of time to plan. I actually feel I downskilled in this job. The job spec was not what I ended up doing and a lot of my skill set went to waste. There is minimal room for progression with the EAs and they are overloaded, underpaid and undervalued. I met a few people in there who were really lovely but I think unfortunately the majority have "drank the koolaid".

Pros

Literally just the Brand name and its stature

Cons

Everything else

Toxic Culture

Worst place i have worked in my career, Toxic environment, bad leaders, they say they are diverse but on the inside it couldn't be further from the truth.

Pros

None

Cons

Bad management, Salaries, Overworked, no appreciation

Good experience overall

The day to day workload was fine with typical spells busier than others, but very manageable overall and Partners in the main, were easy to work with, kind and reasonable to deal with. Expenses and travel all have a process to follow and is easily managed.However the administrative circle of Executive Assistants had a few bad apples in it who contributed to a toxic work culture with back biting, excluding people and general behaviour that was only tolerated as the lead EA behaved in a similar way. This led to a huge high turnover of EAs which was disappointing. You need to be extremely resilient to survive in this culture. Has the potential to be great once rid of the bad apples.

Pros

Good salary, work life balance and recognition by Partners

Cons

Toxic behaviour in EA circle with bad apples spoiling the barrel, Nothing done to address, PMDP review process

Productive and relaxed

As part of the collections team, our daily task were to collect cash for the business. This involved liaising with engagement managers and clients to see when expected payment was. I learned a lot in this role and experienced what it was like in a working environment. Everyone was extremely easy to get along with and helpful.

Pros

Flexitime

Cons

Supervision

Great stepping stone

Overall great place to work. Can be demanding during certain periods but if you're looking for a stable, long-term career, it's certainly a place to consider. Compensation is competitive among its' peers but that doesn't mean to say employees are fairly compensated. .Overall workforce s is above average in terms of talent, intelligence, skill etc. but the compensation doesn't reflect this. If you are more focused on compounded growth, consider EY. If you're looking for good comp in the short to medium-term, perhaps not the best place.

Driven and Fast paced environment

Experience Dependant on area you work in, your career progression is cared about and there is a driven and determined culture. Expect to get out what you put in, often this means longer hours than contracted for. People have been really helpful and nice in my experience

Great to get experience but can be stressful

I worked at EY for over30 years. I made some great contacts and got very good experience with well known clients. As I got older I found the workload became quite stressful

Pros

Good experience

Cons

Very stressful

Great place to be

Fast paced fun working enviroment

My day would start with me coming into work at 9 am. I would either carry on with the work I had from the previous day or I would wait for my Senior to appoint me the allocated work for the day or for the week. Usually it wouldn't be too busy and because of this we were able to take many breaks.

Pros

Free Gym

Cons

Sometimes since I was an Intern I felt like I didn't have anything to do

Good entry level positions

Join EY as a graduate will provide you with a broad spectrum of experience and knowledge. As experienced professional it's similar to the other big 4, and will not add much additional experience.

Streesful

Most days can be stressful others can be great. This depends on the team you are on and the individuals above you. All in all, not the worst place to work

Not a fit for me

Not challenging, not inclusive, quiet, reserved, strange atmosphere, Not a happy place. It was a very hard environment to fit into and people were very insular.I was not challenged with work but it was a challenge to fit into the environment

Work Hard Advance Hard

My role and my team were completely overworked beyond belief but we loved every minute of it. I became amazing at my job because I was given so much trust and responsibility. I loved the equality atmosphere and the regular social activities. Loved interacting with Partners and levels below. Loved the excitement when we won tenders and dragged some over the line to success when the odds were against us in terms of resources and time availability. They work you hard, and they reward you for it.
