Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 July 2014
A lot of calendaring for my executive and some of the other senior level employees. External and internal meetings as I worked in Advisory Services. This was a very FAST paced environment. Here I learned to enjoy the fast pace and really time manage. We submitted a lot of proposals so I am very familiar with editing/polishing powerpoints etc. for presentations to C-suite externals. the hardest part of the job was making sure everything was done by deadline and so that put a lot of stress on me. It was my first job out of university so I really value the time I worked at EY for I was taught and learned on my own how to handle high pressure situations.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when we won a bid and I knew that I helped contribute to that success.
Management and procedures were very organized and there was room for growth. This place was not hypocritical in their values and they did provide growth for their employees.
Co-workers were either really great to work with (regarded me as a friend and co-worker) regardless of what level. OR they were hierarchical and I did not like this. It was quite a big organization so I didn't get the tight family feeling I receive most times at CPPIB.
education could be paid from 50-100% depending on what I took, very reputable company, learned a lot of my executive level skills from working here
some people asked a lot of me and it was not possible when I worked for so many people, I would oftentimes burn myself out because I had trouble saying no or delegating.

Technology (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 March 2014
Work Work Work. Salary is not bad but long hours and little vacation days, so overall, the pay is not any better than other companies for similar roles. If you are not a CA, don't work for EY. No one appreciates your hard work. Though company expects you to work for 24/7.
Opportunity to work with highly skilled teams in a positive environment
Administrative Assistant and Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, Ontario – 18 February 2014
Working in a team atmosphere in the management consulting and research areas I had an opportunity to work with highly skilled people who encouraged knowledge sharing and personal advancement. Some work days were long when working on deadlines but there were often rewards to compensate. The only reason I left this position was because I relocated too far away to commute and I have regretted it ever since. A great place to work and a great company culture.
Productive and fun place to work - you work with people who work hard and play hard
