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

Senior Information and Research Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 June 2015
I enjoy working at EY. The work/life balance is valued here. People are always willing to help when you need it. I have been here over 7 years and, so far, have no desire to leave.

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

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
