I loved working there, until it was rumored our jobs were possibly going to be eliminated. I didn't want to wait to be let go, so I found new employment. No one ended up being let go in the end. Many of my friends still work there and love it. No one that I know of has been let go due to COVID, so that really says something about the firm. They are solid and care about their employees.
Pros
Good insurance.

The day to day workload was fine with typical spells busier than others, but very manageable overall and Partners in the main, were easy to work with, kind and reasonable to deal with. Expenses and travel all have a process to follow and is easily managed.However the administrative circle of Executive Assistants had a few bad apples in it who contributed to a toxic work culture with back biting, excluding people and general behaviour that was only tolerated as the lead EA behaved in a similar way. This led to a huge high turnover of EAs which was disappointing. You need to be extremely resilient to survive in this culture. Has the potential to be great once rid of the bad apples.
Pros
Good salary, work life balance and recognition by Partners
Cons
Toxic behaviour in EA circle with bad apples spoiling the barrel, Nothing done to address, PMDP review process

I worked as a temp EA from Nov '18 to Mar '19. I loved working for EY. The job, people & mgrs were great. I was hopeful it would become permanent, but sadly it did not. I will DEF apply if/when the right job is posted.
Pros
The people, work, appreciation.
Cons
I was not included/invited to their big holiday bash. Full disclosure? I would not have even gone, but being left out made me feel awful & unappreciated. But I got over it.

Speaking strictly from an experienced EA's point of view, unless you are young and single, advancement in your top administrative role is simply too congested with talent to secure a promotion into another role without relocating and/or shifting job responsibilities. In other words, an EY EA has few upward advancement opportunities unless they shift into a different field and are willing to relocate. This may not work well for those with working career spouses, or young children in schools where they are thriving. Eventually, you get the sense from EY that you need to seek advancement as the years go by or get left behind in favor of those that can easily relocate and grow in different career paths.
Pros
Virtual assistance experience; Company stability
Cons
Few opportunities for growth in a densely competitive arena

I wish I never resigned from EY - my massive mistake. I would go back in a heartbeat 💓 I cannot find another company like it. EY tried their best to stop me from resigning and I wished I listened to them.

Work life balance is not there, even though they advertise it. Administration employees are seen as a lower rank and are required to work beyond required hours to satisfy the audit department partners
Pros
working in a global unit
Cons
long hours and a lot of pressure

EY does not appreciate the employees. Instead of helping and giving constructive advice they (she) was quit to put you down as well as talk down like everyone was incompetent

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

EY's workplace culture is dynamic! Inclusivity and diversity are embraced which makes for a healthy work environment. Managers are top-notch! Op-tempo varies but overall the stress level is manageable. There is nothing majorly complex about the job and someone is always available to assist.

I enjoyed my time at EY. In my opinion the firm is reputable and trustworthy with supportive Management. The entire team genuinely cares about the clients, staff and firm as a whole.The environment is very fast-paced-you wear many hats while assisting several s. managers/partners simultaneously which can become overwhelming at times.

I did enjoy the rest of my with EY. I did learn new things on how to be efficient with my job as an Executive Assistant. In terms of work-life balance, we were given a chance to work at home 3 times a week

It uses to be a wonderful organization to work with, now except for the flexibility of working nothing seems to go well, like all corporates there is dirty politics which will pull down enthusiastic candidates.

Working as an EA was difficult, there were 7 EA to support 150 people, there was not enough work to keep busy or challenged. No availability to be remote when under the weather. Though, I did learn more about EY and it was very interesting. I prefer to report to the manager that I support.
Pros
Event Planning
Cons
Not challenging enough for me
