As a business/management consultant at Ernst and young we worked on different projects from private to public entities. The kind of work depended on the client which means you are a versatile consultant as we did work from internal audit, external audit, asset management, project management etc. The culture is very relaxed but also depended on which client you are in as you will need to adapt.

I love the people who work at EY. However the roles that are core to business are ignored and taken advantage of. There's no benefits or perks for Core Business Staff

Depending on the role you are applying for, the view of the job will change for everyone. if you work in a team, you will feel the culture more than when working by yourself.
Pros
open door policy.

EY is very energetic, vibrant company to work for. I am an extrovert and in my line of work i love dealing with different employees with different backgrounds to assist them with understanding their payslips and how this is being structured. We have people from all over the globe coming on assignments within our office an its always a nice experience to have that 1 on 1 interaction with them.

The firm is team oriented and very diverse. You get to work with people that have different backgrounds which is great. The firm has taught me how to supervise the team I work with and how to manage deadlines and expectations of higher management.

The deadlines can get tough, but you always walk away with new knowledge and experience after every audit.

Busy season is pretty tough with long hours and tough deadlines, but things usually calm down after May.


I personally had a good work-life balance.

Transparency, only exists between top management
Goal posts are moved on a regular basis. You are only a number, sexist very low salary bands. A lot of exclusive clicks
