Fantastice learning and growth environment
Tax Supervisor in International Taxation (Current Employee) –  London4 January 2018
Our offices are open plan which makes for a very approachable and connected working environment. We have flexible working hours with of 8 hours a day; however, most employees work 12 to 13 hour days on most occasions.

My technical knowledge, ability to team and to lead has grown in leaps and bounds. I have learned to work under tight deadlines in a stressful environment and with difficult clients successfully.

Our ultimate goal to consistently provide Exceptional Client Service.

Self development is highly encouraged and there are endless opportunities which energises employees and makes for a happy and positive culture.

Dealing with a new client and new engagement in terms of the kind of work you previously were involved in. One needs to learn very quickly in how to handle the new client and to grasp the technical aspects of the work to be provided. This usually results in many hours spent outside normal working hours and over weekends to prep and reach the standard required in order to deliver Exceptional Client Service.

Meeting new people from across the world and constantly learning something new everyday.
Pros
Self development and growth
Cons
Not compensated for hours above 8 hours a day.

Intern (Former Employee) –  London11 December 2017
The workplace was comfortable, with everyone knowing their individual roles yet at the same time linking well together. This is due to the non-hierarchical and transparent structure.

Fun while it lasted
Level 2 SD Technician / Technical Oversight (Former Employee) –  Glasgow, Glasgow24 October 2017
EY is a great place to work, but the management style leaves a lot to be desired. A victim of sweeping cuts to UK IT services, I was made redundant after my role was moved to cheaper locations. This came out of the blue, so I'd be wary of any support service role, as it seems leadership will be quite happy to sacrifice you to increase their turnover a few points.
Pros
Flexible working
Cons
Leadership

Great philosophy poorly executed
Manager (Former Employee) –  London1 September 2017
EY has a great philosophy and great leadership but very poor line management.
It has big ambitions for itself and its staff but most are poorly executed by too many uninspiring and inexperienced managers. Loads of 20-30-year olds who are all theory and little life experience. It's management by manuals.
Your career will only progress if you're part of the clique and liked by senior management or Partners. People get promoted because they're easy to manage not because of any leadership or people skills.
So much talk about high performing teams they lack the ability to deal with even a hint of poor performance.
If you say yes to your bosses, blame your staff for failure and talk lots of corporate jargon you'll go far...
Pros
Great offices with lots of staff perks
Cons
Full of inexperienced and uninspiring leaders and people managers

Good culture, disappointing compensation
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) –  London, UK24 August 2017
The culture is pretty good for the most part, but not consistent across the organization. You can have very different experiences within the different service lines. Some people have fabulous experiences and others have more difficulty with the culture.

There is a very entrepreneurial culture which is great for people willing to step up and take ownership. However, they do make it difficult to advance in your career, which is a shame. Compensation in the UK is extremely poor - by contrast, compensation in NYC was more in line with market.

I do enjoy working at EY and would recommend it to a friend, with the caveat that it can be difficult to advance and compensation isn't quite as competitive as other places.
