PMM-Ernst & Young Toronto
Audit Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 February 2015
Very bad Management.
No chances to get any kind of training and coaching from management.
Specially PMM-Group Manager and Partners are the worst people in the professional world.
Senior Manager always ready to put the blame on Junior.
Partners and Senior Manager treat staff as a second class citizens.
Cons
Long Hours

EY
SENIOR PROGRAM MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Toronto ON9 December 2014
Excellent Top 5 consulting firm. Located Globally around the world.

Ernst & Young (known as EY) is a multinational professional services firm headquartered in London, United Kingdom. It was the third largest professional services firm in the world by aggregated revenue in 2012 and is one of the "Big Four" audit firms

The organization operates as a network of member firms which are separate legal entities in individual countries. It has 190,000 employees and more than 700 offices in over 150 countries. It provides assurance (including financial audit), tax, consulting and advisory services to companies

The firm dates back to 1849 with the founding of Harding & Pullein in England. The current firm was formed by a merger of Ernst & Whinney and Arthur Young & Co. in 1989.[9] It was known as Ernst & Young until 2013, when it underwent a rebranding to EY. The acronym "EY" was already an informal name for the firm prior to its official adoption

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.
