Great place to develop and gain experience
Assistant Director of Finance - Tax Service Line (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 January 2016
You get more experience than you would working in easy 9-5 jobs but it comes at the cost of long work hours, working over weekends and even holidays.

Pay is not competitive in Finance roles when compared to other companies. But working for here is comparable to going to a prestigious school, once you're done with it you'll have a really big name to back you up.

There is a focus on work-life balance but it is all bluff and not real. If you work your 40 hours a week you're seen as lazy and same if you take advantage of working from home. The culture is work extended hours regardless if there isn't any work to get through.

Work politics are a big part of this firm, network yourself well and you'll move up quickly and you'll have a good time working. But do the opposite and you'll hate what you do.
Pros
Good social events and great benefits package
Cons
Long hours, Office politics

good place to work for external client serving staff
CBS Staff (Former Employee) –  AB8 January 2016
Training and other perks are available to external client serving staff; however, staff in internal service units, base on my personal experience, as they don't generate revenue, are marginalized in many ways.

On the bright side, internal service staff in general enjoy more work-life balance though the difference of amount and significance of their work as opposed to their external service counterparts is well reflected on the paychecks.

Great company. Very little work/life balance (8am-7pm), no company culture. The tasks are stimulating and challenging but the environment is far from ideal.

Auditor, Senior Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  vancouver, bc23 October 2015
EY had a challenging environment which is expected for a public practice firm. However, it allowed me to learn fundamental financial skills that i use even today. It was because of EY that I was able to become a professional accountant today.

EY provides great opportunities to work across a variety of companies and industries; the client service offerings extend far beyond auditing, and provide staff with great chances to work on interesting challenges and projects.

Despite what they tell you this is not a people friendly environment
Senior Global Immigration Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 July 2015
Management is very poor and not qualified for the position. There is no team spirit at all neither is it being promoted. Decisions are being made without consultation with staff.

The work life balance is probably one of the key advantages. Otherwise not a good place to work at least based on my experience in the specific service line.
Pros
work life balance
Cons
poor management, too much redtape, limited advancement opportunity

Chance to learn from the best
Manager, Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 May 2015
EY is a firm with brilliant and driven people. The culture is that of results, but there is also a good amount of coaching available.

There is no typical day at work, as I belong to the consulting team, working with clients on project-based initiatives.

Throughout my time at EY, I have had the opportunity to drive and lead multiple projects, mostly in the procurement area. The work is rewarding, and allowed me to grow professionally with a great influx in knowledge and project management responsibilities.
Pros
Get to work with smart, driven people
Cons
Travel
