I cannot fairly rate EY, I was there for 8 months as a contractor and all consumed by my projects. It was long hours and much stress. I don't have more to tell. There are some really great people to work with and I enjoyed working with them.
High Pressure Work Environment. Rigid hierarchy. Difficult if you do not start as intern. Low pay for staff / associates Good opportunities when you leave.
Typical day at work consists of settling in and fielding requests of the Accountants, Lawyers and Partners of the firm. Fast paced, customer driven and customer needs-driven workloads are the basis of the job. EY is a private firm that operates by a set of rules that aren't always fully disclosed to it's employees. This can be a great thing (ie. Extended Holidays and Perks) and sometimes a not so great thing (uncertainty with job expectations and where the company is headed in the NEAR future). Management is present but not always as accessible as needed considering the demanding nature of the office. There is a strict chain of command that must be followed as well. Culture of the workplace is progressive and diverse. Hardest part of the job is Hierarchical Politics. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping people.
Diverse and creative work environment

I worked with all global EY sites to assist and support the transition to newer technology and move to SIP trunking and Skype for Business on a global level. I loved my job at EY, however, they are outsourcing their infrastructure team and are laying off 100's of people which has effected me.
The people and management are awesome at EY
That they are laying off dedicated employees
I am in the Alpharetta office in the SDC if you have a chance to work here I highly suggest you reconsider it. At the start, Ey had a great culture and was living up to the hype that I had heard. The work was tough but rewarding, however when projects became few and far between, no technical skills were being developed, and management began to micromanage every aspect of our 9-5 I had to leave. This job could have been a 5-year career for me, however, you really aren't apart of EY. The SDC is basically one step above offshore resources and you are treated like it. We do the same work, with the same skills, and are paid $25k less and get no recognition for it. Also, you are hidden from all other EY branches and are not allowed to try and transfer, unless you have upwards of 5 years you want to use. I do not, what so ever, recommend this job to anyone at all. Do not take it, don't be swayed by the EY name, you will not survive here. The culture here is abysmal and at an all-time low. People are constantly leaving this for anything else they can find. Good luck on your job search, please do not take this.
great name on the resume
work life balance, growing skills, pay, career advancement.
