Wonderful Place to Start!
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 February 2019
An absolutely great place to work with flexible work hours and the perfect work/life balance. The work culture is amazing and you'll be hard to find better people to work with. However, the pay is fairly low and it's hard to move up. It is not on par or even close to other similar executive assistant positions in Toronto. The job is very task based and you support too many partners - making it difficult to really delve into their various projects to be able to provide a higher quality of support.
Pros
Lots of vacation time

Great company to work for
Financial Services Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 December 2018
EY is one of the best companies to work for. The Financials Services Office Advisory - Data Analytics practice is by far the best practice that I have been a part of. It has a great culture and provides for a great working environment and experience.

Great learning atmosphere
Senior, IT Risk Assurance (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 November 2018
Joining EY as a staff early in your career provides incredible learning opportunities and sets the foundation for future job opportunities. The volume of work is immense, but as long as you have the right expectations it is manageable.

Consulting (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 November 2018
Good company, but lack of work life balance. Plus depending on the practice it might be highly advance or very primitive. That defines your experience at the firm

EY is strong into relationship building
IT Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 October 2018
EY strongly promotes relationship building amongst its people and teams, delays are tolerated as long as you keep team cohesion. Very international feel to the company with teams made up from people from many countries

Fun Company, Unreasonable Compensation
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 October 2018
PROS:
- GREAT company values, lots of fun work perks (a pretty good and flexible fitness benefit, for eg), and many great firm socials.
- The environment is pretty pleasant, and you will probably develop a great professional network of ambitious co-workers and wise mentors!
- It seems like there is a huge rate of participation in the firm teams, groups, etc., and a generally high level of pride in the company.
- A sketched out path of progression (promotions) within all factions.
- At the very least, you will learn A GREAT AMOUNT, and make a lot of amazing friends.

CONS:
- This may be typical of the industry, but the length of your workday/workweek varies significantly between the seasons (specific to business cycles of your main clients) - for eg, I worked ~70 hour weeks for 3 months on end (probably 2-3 holidays in total over this period).
- The concept of overtime compensation doesn't exist (at least for co-ops), and this leads to undercompensated work. It's very easy to lose motivation.
- A (sometimes unreasonable) expectation from you to "work-from-home".
- The teams you're deployed as a part of can vary significantly in terms of how welcoming/accommodating/fun they can be. This can lead to a very stressful environment given the long hours.
- For beginners, there is also a concern re: the large variance in the level of support (in terms of coaching) provided by teams (employees are almost always promoted to "Senior Accountant"-level, even though there is a large discrepancy in their coaching skills - the promotion is largely determined by their passing of

unrealistic expectation
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 September 2018
Work life balance is non-existent. Long hours and stressful team dynamics can result in burn-out. Depending on the individual team you may end up either liking or disliking it, teams work in silos. Manager is very important. a good manager will help you be successful and a bad manager will make life very difficult
Pros
mileage

long hours
