    Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Johannesburg (South Africa)

    I have been working at EY full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid experience during articles.
    Great working environment where you can meet lots of young people.
    Great mentoring from senior staff so that junior staff can grow.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not there.
    I think it is a good place to be when you are young but not for when you want to start a family.
    Work is also very project based, resulting in you not getting focused experience, and you become a jack of all trades, but a master of none.

    Current Employee - Advisory Staff II in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at EY full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people, interesting projects, decent pay, ability to work n multi-disciplinary teams. The healthcare practice is thriving and there is a fair amount of growth opportunity. Culture is amazing! Offers many learning opportunities and education weeks twice a year.

    I have been fortunate in being able to choose my projects due to multiple senior managers and managers wanting me on team and my practice area is specialized. Opportunities there if you take advantage. Career can be what you make it.

    People care about you as a person. Noticeable increase of firm pushing work/life balance. 15 years on best places to work for list. It's true, EY is a great place.

    Change in year-end review process will allow majority of employees to get bonus rather than old system where only the 5 ratings (1-5) would split the bonus pool dollars.

    Firm leadership decision making is transparent and disseminated to practice.

    Cons

    Old systems that leads to administrative burdens. Difficult at times to get 'permission' to pitch potential clients due to audit and independence rules.

    Hiring of people one or two levels above you because they are older and have industry experience, could lead into a more cut-throat culture as there would be fewer opportunities for advancement.

    Some clients. Haha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More needs to be done to distinguish healthcare advisory. People confuse us with the audit arm. Even at the client! Go to www.ey.com and look for healthcare...it's not easy to locate. Stop using Lotus notes!
