Good for specific type of person
This review is specifically for the Consulting role. For most people, the main pull of this job is going to be job advancement. While the firm pays a lot of lip service to promoting based on performance over tenure, this isn't entirely true. In practice, there are still a minimum amount of time they want you to spend in each role. Only the absolute top performers (think culture coin) are able to get around this. Additionally, this timeline is changing and can be longer depending on who you roll up to. So, while your area might think it should take 3 years minimum to the next level, other areas will promote at 2 years. The travel aspect of the role is worse in practice than it is on paper. You may think at the travel percentage and think that it is manageable. Make sure to take into consideration that 4 days before your flight, you might not know when or where you traveling to. You truly must like travelling for work. This is different than normal travel. You will be in a crowded room with your team until most of the employees at the client have left. You are then typically encouraged to go to a team dinner. This can frequently result in you leaving your hotel at 8AM and not getting back until 9PM. This must be something you WANT to do. I was initially neutral on travelling for work, but I gradually began to hate it as time went on. Other notes: The type of projects you will be on a largely out of your control. Where you are travelling for you projects are largely out o

Ernst and Young
I must say, before I hired I heard some not good things about The Firm. But, I took a leap of faith and stepped outside of my comfort zone. I was a government contractor since since 2006 until my resignation in 2013 when I joined The Firm. When I was first hired, they flew me out to Cleveland, Ohio where their home office is for a meet and greet session and orientation. Only when I to the hotel, come to find out The Firm had not booked my room where they assigned me to stay during my visit to Ohio. That really started out my time with The Firm with a bad taste in my mouth. So, orientation went smoothly and I met some really cool people during my meet and greet. So, I get back to DC 2 days later. That Monday, I get to work, Its a gentlemen there to assist/train for me 2 weeks until I get a hang of the way The Firm operates. Well, that night after work, my trainer played in a pickup game of soccer and tore his ACL. He was out of work for 10 weeks. You would think The Firm would send a replacement trainer to assist me in my first week at The Firm, but they did NOT. So right then and there, i was already behind the 8ball. But, I made due. As time went on, I slowly but surely grabbed a hold of the way The Firm operates with one day of formal training (self taught). During my time at The Firm, the group I worked for Creative Services Group (CSG) was under and major construction with the their job log in system, job receiving system and email system(from Lotus Notes to Outlook) so t

EY Life
The job upon starting was great! I quickly learned (inside of 6 months) that the person I was primarily supporting did not like me. Never came to me directly; went to admin Manager. The training did not set me up for success; definitely for failure. I didn't know what I didn't know.. Definitely people working there that were untouchable and some of the most challenging people to work with (these people were in administrative positions - NOT EXECUTIVES!). Literally, had to gift folks in certain position to help me do my job. I was dumb-founded. High-level and visible position and was trained for two weeks. The person who trained received a promotion and just wanted to move on. I did have a mentor but because we didn't really relate to one another (culturally different), a waste of time. But the person was able to use that as credit to them working and being a team player. I was told I did not engage enough by admin manager... If I work with you one on one why go to someone outside of the group. I was encouraged to be "too friendly" and it was something I failed at miserably...mainly because I don't have the knack of being fake. Was moved to a different department. Worked out much better. However, it was lower tier and it literally was like crabs in a bucket. cliques and favorites. If you are not a big social person you have to navigate very carefully. Meaning; be everything to everybody. Just wanted to do job and go home. Others opinions of you became a par

Great company, but did not work out for me.
Ernst & Young no doubt is one of the most reputable Big-4 consulting firms of the world. I was very proud to be a part of it, and on paper, it was the answer for that dream jobs that I had been looking for. The reality, and neither their fault nor mine, is that I was hired to do one thing and one thing only, to consult on a specific hospital inventory software system - derived from my previous work. Unfortunately, this system was not really in demand at the time (1998-9) and I found myself "on the beach". Initially, this was OK as it allowed me to decompress and figure out the corporate structure and culture. I have never seen one line it before nor since, and to this day I am not sure if it is the way to run things. My tenure there was short, and I grew frustrated of not being deployed to engagements, as they called them; assignments around the country to do what I do best. In the meantime I took internal and external training at their expense, and brushed up on a lot of new technologies while I appealed to change departments and fit me into an engagement where I could not only utilize my skills, but leverage my languages and international work experience. This never happened, and the frustration grew. As a result, I wound up leaving and returning to Europe for a fruitful 12 years until the Great Recession set in. I would recommend this company solely based on its outside reputation, however, those interested in joining the elite should read up on the culture and corpo

Great exposure to big companies but terrible approach and you’ll work like a mule
I interned and took a full time position for after graduation. Was very impressed with the magnitude of our projects and c-suite interaction. Definitely felt professional and important. Got to do some abnormal “consulting” engagements where I more so talked with management and served as a project manager. EY is constantly rebranding their practices in order to appeal to the latest and greatest trends, but none of the work changes for us. One of my biggest pet peeves was they would hire people from other Big 4’s and pay them 15-20% more than what we loyal employees make. When COVID-19 hit, we were told there would be no layoffs. This was reiterated multiple times. All of our trainings were online this year (average cost per person savings of at least $3-4K), we didn’t lose too much work (still had $11B of revenue), yet they cut all bonuses and raises. Oh and then they decide to donate millions of dollars to historically black colleges/universities right as they cut our bonuses! The following week were told we can go to the march on Washington and not have to charge vacation, and EY would pay for anyone’s flight who wanted to go! Morale was at an all time low after 3 years. Don’t know how they have the money for all of this but not enough to take care of their loyal, hard-working employees. Then out of the blue I get a call and let’s me know that I’m fired and have 2 more days at the firm. OUT OF THE BLUE. They claimed performance issues but they fired a lot of seniors acros

Great place to launch a career
EY provides a wide array of experiences to develop entry level workers. Entry level workers will begin to supervise other team members as early as their first month. There is a lot of on the job coaching and a lot of responsibility given to the new workers. It's a great launching spot. EY provides great benefits, including 16 weeks of maternity/paternity leave, flexible work arrangements, and the ability to work remotely depending on the workload. Personnel have the ability to travel if desired. I wish they did a better job with retaining good talent and placing weaker personnel in the industry. In some of the bigger offices, there is a saturation of senior managers, so at that level it becomes a weird competitive culture where people are not the friendliest and I noticed that the weaker senior managers can be horrendous to the people below them. A lot of great talent has already left to be in the industry before hitting senior manager. Makes you cringe thinking of some people they promote to partner. You are conditioned to always share your knowledge, so executives tend to talk over everyone else, instead of allowing other team members to contribute their opinions. People who then "talk a lot" are seen as a better performer, even if they are spewing B.S. or repeating something another person just said. As much as people say "face time" doesn't matter...it does. People wear their high utilization as a badge of honor, which is a contradiction to the work/life balanc

Educational and professional workplace.
A typical day at work was working late for year-end close. There was nothing I can do from my end to improve the process. I will have to stay late regardless either to finish my work or help co-workers. The lesson I learned was to be part of the process and alert my family about the day. I love the management at EY. They appreciate independent work where I can manage my area of responsibility accordingly. Also, they let employees work under different supervisors where it allows us to continue learning new opportunities. Co-workers are more of a family. There was a happy hour every Friday where employees get together to interact or enjoy each other. Also every year we used to go out for a big dinner. Coming from abroad, with different culture and work ethics, EY was a turning point for me to learning new skills in the United States. I really appreciate the opportunity I was given to prove my-self. I worked at three different levels for more than four different supervisors that helped me grow both personally and professionally. The most enjoyable part of the job is also the hardest part of the job that is the no routine. Reconciling various accounts with deadlines, productivity reports both from supervisors and quality assurance department is the fun and hardest part of the job. There is a high level of expectation that requires me work effectively and efficiently in a professional and timely manner. Their quality assurance department will ensure accuracy and timeli

Answered Aug 5, 2018
It was a fairly long process from applying to day 1 of training - about 2 months. I was contacted by the recruiter within a week, had my phone interview within a couple days, but then had to wait for 2 weeks for my in-person interview. I did hear back within a week of the interview with a job offer, but had to wait another month for training to start. It was a new program at EY though, so they were waiting to accommodate a whole training class.

What is the work environment and culture like at EY?
Asked Jul 20, 2016
Very collegial. We did original work of high caliber, bringing process improvement methodologies to a function that had never been given adequate attention. The firm's policy of paying to upgrade me to Platinum status on the airline frequent flyer program before it had been "earned" and allowing upgrades to first class on a available-seat basis went a long way toward making the travails of business travel more palatable.
