Great place to work and grow. work/life balance isn't great
Advisory Risk Manager (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 6 August 2017
The company overall is all about growing your book of business and those who are able to devote their entire life to the company get far ahead. Anyone expecting work/life balance doesn't usually fit into the company's plans for future advancements.
Tax Manager - Wealth & Asset Mgmt -FS Industry (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 5 August 2017
Good Place for new employees to work for Tax Service Line, who like to take breaks based on the high & lows of the work schedule. No great scope for advancement or allocation of projects based on eligibility/knowledge.
Work/Life Balance, Breaks from Work
No learning or growth for experienced professionals.

The working experiences I had with Ernst &Young has been a fruitful one. I had a good working relationship with my colleagues as well as the management. Employees benefits are great and generous with vacations.
National Accounts Collections (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 July 2017
Having worked for EY for 17 years proves that it is a great place to work and learn. Having started at a clerical level and worked my way up to Director shows you how if you have potential you can have a great career at EY.
Their cutting edge technology makes projects more easy to work with.
Intermediate Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 July 2017
EY takes care of their employees from A to Z. It is an enjoyable place to work. Their cutting edge technology is available through a very experienced IT team. This makes projects more easy to work with.
PPED Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 February 2017
The Edmonton team is great, unfortunately the management of our team is out of Calgary and Toronto, which often means there is a lack of physical presence in the office and lack of day to day leadership.
Experience depends on the team and the Partner you are working for
Senior Manager - Financial Services Risk (Former Employee) – Geneva, London, UK – 23 January 2017
EY does not actually seem to have a culture. The experience is completely dependent on the team and Partner you are working with.
My personal experience has varied between awful at one end where due to Partners working to their own personal agendas and looking after person favourites there was no interesting work or development, to the other end of the spectrum where I was part of fantastic motivated teams and Partners who work me hard but energized and developed me.
whatever the case, the pay and benefits were very good which made the whole experience a little sweeter.
Opportunity to try new things and work with a variety of people, The basic pay and benefits package is pretty good.
Progression and development is not transparent, It's very political environment with a culture of favouritism.
Associate Partner (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 January 2017
Many new people. Significant percentage of staff are recent graduates to less than 5 years of working experience. Culture is to provide freedom to the new people and not actually have an apprenticeship culture. As such, work experience including sales, client and people management skills are rather erratic and spotty in many practice sectors.
Services may offer some new innovations due to technology but underlying underpinnings of business and management strategy may not be there. .
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 October 2016
A great place to work. Innovative technology. Great team and camaraderie. Loved the culture there. Fun place to work. Several events during the year and we were well fed. The hardest part of the job was there was no opportunity to move upward.
During summer we were given extra long weekends off.
Management should work on long term people retention
A perfect place for new graduate student to begin career.
Senior Auditor (Former Employee) – 杭州市 – 6 October 2016
In peak season, we always go to clients' office do field work and we have to finish our work under time pressure. I have learned good communication skills with clients, managers, other experts and colleagues. Time management is extreme important to do this job. After applicate and use my professional knowledge learned at school in working, I had a huge improvement on my technical skills and accounting, business knowledge. Colleagues are excellent people. we should work together, live together, share interest things together.
J'ai beaucoup aimé travailler chez Ernst & Young. J'ai appris à mettre de l'avant ma facilité de gestion du temps en travaillant pour cette entreprise. J'ai appris à faire l'inventaire des produits utilisés sur une base régulière, à remplir et nettoyer des machines à café industrielles, à mettre en place des salles de conférence pour un buffet (et à les nettoter ensuite). Les gens avec qui j'ai travaillé étaient sympathiques, et le travail d'équipe était une valeur sur laquelle on insistait beaucoup. Le plus difficile pour moi a été de me retrouver sur les différents étages de la compagnie, j'ai un très mauvais sens de l'orientation... J'ai aimé travaillé che EY parce que c'était quelque chose de nouveau pour moi, et qu'on me laissait gérer mon temps comme je le voulais. Je me suis fait plusieurs amis dans cette compagnie.
work starts 8:30 and ends 5:00 during regular seasons, more overtime during busy season (around 10hours perday) conduct field work at the client's site get coached by senior staff and managers prepare and document the working papers get the managers to review the working papers clear the review notes from managers have to study the CPA knowledge after work co-workers are very helpful managerment are very experienced
