What people are saying about EY
The Work-Life Bowl
3 years ago
I’m 24 and just started my career at EY as a consultant. I feel good about the salary I make, work I do, and where I’m at in my career. My personal life also has a ton of fulfillment and truly makes me so happy. That being said, I have a high school classmate and close friend who was in IB and just started his own hedge fund type of business after leaving his big bank job. I feel like I’m falling behind. He’s probably going to end up a millionaire fast. I try not to compare but can’t hell mtseld

I work for a company in Calgary, Canada, with an annual salary of 76,000 CAD. Surprisingly, after just one week of work, I received a paycheck for $1,653, which is more than I anticipated for a week's pay after taxes. The pay slip didn't clearly explain the details, so I'm seeking insights into why this might be. EY KPMG Deloitte

Can we have a conversation? The general consensus is that clients don’t want to spend as much on consulting as in the past either due to the current economic downturn or not seeing the same value as once before. If true, what can bring consulting forward again? If you feel different, what is your view? EY Deloitte PwC McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group KPMG Accenture

Great scope of learning and networking, approachable senior management, good pipeline of projects however depends on skillset.
Average benefits and pay. Better to join in a senior level or in the starting level as grads.

Great experience and clients. Flexible working conditions
Could have more talented staff below manager. Little high quality resources for managers which leads to a greater workload.

Can get good experience and make good contacts within the industry
No Christmas bonus or bonus of any kind throughout the year while earning 'record profits'

Subsidized canteen. Clean building. Beside LUAS.
Bullying culture. Extreme micro management including monitoring toilet and tea breaks to excess. The way they treat staff feels like a much smaller company with little knowledge of acceptable workplace behaviour might do. Shocking for such a big company. Genuinely a trip back to high school with 50 year old mean girls leading the Executive Assistants. No room to have a personality or work on anything other than your mundane tasks. Performative pride parties and black history month etc but it's all for show as they don't treat people with respect.

1. Opportunities to work on strategic projects. 2. There are nice people and mentors in the organisation . 3. Office is in a good location.
1. EY Consulting is a glorified staffing agency, therefore they don’t care about your career aspirations. Leadership’s sole priority is that you’re charged to a client project, which will result in a high margin. 2. Burn out - you will be asked to carry out a lot work (i.e tender responses) in addition to your client work. Leadership are content in harming staff’s mental health, so that they can maximize their equity pay outs. Despite all the extra effort, late nights and weekend work, you don’t receive any meaningful financial appreciation for this. “Exposure” and emails saying “thank you” do not pay the bills! 3. High turnover rate - every month people are made aware of some the smartest people in the organisation moving onto different jobs. 4. Pay - Compensation is sub par compared to the market rate, which is evidenced by the fact quality people are leaving for roles paying considerably more money. 5. Toxic culture - you’ll come across colleagues who will try to “one up” you. This environment is toxic.

Flexible hours and work-from-home arrangements are available with no obligation to be in the office. The team is great, with collaborative and friendly people.
Although there are benefits available, not everyone has access to them. It can be challenging to feel connected to the company culture and colleagues, as clients are the top priority. While the company is diverse overall, diversity decreases as you move up the ladder. Understanding the processes, evaluations, and career progression can be difficult. It often feels like you are constantly selling yourself, tailoring your CV, and going through endless job interviews.

Big 4, so happens to support movements across border.
Should respect the value of a resource (experienced) coming over across borders.
