    I worked at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of Big Four. Good team spirit between EAs. Some opportunity to get involved in activities outside of the core EA role. Working environment/facilities are good. A new performance appraisal system has been introduced which looks very positive.

    Cons

    Salary is reflective of being benchmarked against Big Four. Still a bit low for the level you're working at. Not enough EAs to cover absences so can be stretched too far over too long a period sometimes but they are proactively recruiting to improve this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be proactive on staff inclusion and performance management.

    I worked at EY full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros? Well, the pay was good, and the location of the office is close to town.

    Cons

    Occasionally, I still have nightmares about my time in EY FS. I avoid certain pubs, and even walking down certain streets after work in the evening in case I meet the person who bullied me, or any of the people who supported and protected him.
    I worked in FS Marketing for 10 months. In that time, I got wonderful feedback from partners across the business. I was well liked by my colleagues, many of whom I keep in touch with, and I broke a number of records in terms of our marketing metrics.
    Despite this, I had a manager who made my life miserable. Mountains were made out of molehills in order for him to justify it. An overtly sexist, racist and homophobic man, he seemed to hate it thatin a short time I had developed strong working relationships with people who were more senior than him. He hated that I called him out for saying wildly inappropriate things.
    And he took his revenge when he got the chance, choosing moments when I was experiencing family tragedies to apply added pressure, to put his boot on my neck.
    His second-in-command, a mediocre yes-woman repeatedly backed him up, and the HR department repeatedly pointed out that he’d been working there longer than me and essentially made me feel like I was just causing trouble. Two very senior partners completely ignored me when I reached out to them after I left the company to highlight the behaviour.
    Three of my colleagues resigned within a few weeks of me, reflecting the horrendous atmosphere in the team. I quietly hoped the management would see this for what it was and take action accordingly. And they did – this man was promoted… It appears to me that bullying isn’t just tolerated within EY FS Marketing, it’s tacitly supported.
    It’s been more than six months since I left. I’ve spent hours in therapy talking about this man, and how the company supported him. I’m in a much better place now, but even still I just get a horrible feeling in my stomach even thinking about that place.

    Pros

    Great company to have on your CV - Opportunity to develop your skills taking the courses available- The majority of people are amiable and approachable.

    Cons

    Very political - Old school processes - Too many bosses - Not very fair atmosphere, some staff, at the same level, have more - clear- privileges than others.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk and be open to diversity not only on social media. Promote woman, international staff and people who think different- based on performance, skills, and ability, not in anything else.
