Supervising Associate Facility Management (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 May 2016
My day-to-day job involves efficiently managing others, communicating complex data to the technical team and breaking down this information for clients and stakeholders.
Problem-solving and troubleshooting are tasks which I face on a daily basis and am confident at resolving. When there is an issue, as often happens in facility operation, I am sure to investigate the issue fully, scope out the best methods to resolve it, probe implications of each method, and communicate the data clearly with all relevant team members.

Manager Financial Services Risk Management (Former Employee) – Toronto – 18 March 2016
Typical day at work - until very late night There is a lot to learn - But that comes with the stress of not having weekends or personal life. Management - Hit and miss, some departments might have reasonable managers others have it really bad Co-workers - Most co-workers were nice since we spent that much time in office together. Still, some were eager to step on bodies to move up.
Lawyer (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 13 February 2016
I really enjoyed working at Ernst & Young and would recommend it to anyone. I worked with their tax group and only left after having been offered another position that I could not turn down (not with one of their competitors).
Immigration law clerk (Former Employee) – Alberta – 10 February 2016
I worked here as a clerk for a year. It was the most hostile work environment I have ever worked in. The management team consisted of 5 lawyers and 4 managers, all of whom were female. It was difficult to work under 9 female managers, especially when there was clear animosity between said management. Staff were treated like minions, working overtime consistently and being scrutinized when overtime was submitted to management for review. But not working overtime resulted in management considering you to be a poor, lazy worker. The people who thrive in this environment are people who do not care for a work/life balance, have little regard for other human beings, and have robotic like tendencies. Not a fit for you if you are mostly human and care to have a social life.
Most clerks I worked with complained of anxiety, stress, and even depression on a consistent basis.
Assistant Director of Finance - Tax Service Line (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 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.
good place to work for external client serving staff
CBS Staff (Former Employee) – AB – 8 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.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 November 2015
EY is a great place to work and learn. It has great culture and great people to work with. Management is polite and always ready to hear how their teams are doing and what can be done to make them grow in their career.
Dir. adjointe, ressources humaines (Current Employee) – Montréal, Qc – 27 October 2015
Mon expérience chez EY a été marquée de bons suivis par la direction, d'une période d'apprentissage adéquate, de coaching sur l'entreprise au besoin et d'une équipe qui se donnait, collaborait et faisait en sorte que le service donné à la clientèle soit des plus satisfaisants.
J'aurais considéré y demeurer si un poste avait été disponible car le poste était pour une période déterminée (remplacement).
Auditor, Senior Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – vancouver, bc – 23 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.
