Excellent learning opportunity

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Long hours, but definitely the best learning opportunity when you start your career. The tech resources are also a major advantage of working at the firm.

Great working culture

The company provides ample opportunities for employees to enhance their skills and knowledge through regular training programs, workshops, and seminars. It was evident that the company truly cared about the holistic growth of its workforce, offering mentorship programs and career progression plans to nurture talent from within.

Good for career growth, not well organized, poor work-life balance

I moved up the ranks within the firm and can certainly say it's the best place to be if you're looking for quick career growth. The Canadian firm is not too organized and a lot of times we lack guidance, but it also allows you a lot of opportunities for business development. Work-life balance is what you'd expect from any Big 4 companies.

Co-op Interview

Was so stressed before my interview, but they're truly lovely people. More of a conversation rather than an interview. They want to get to actually know you.

It was a good experience.

What is the best part of working at the company?Excellent organisation with a pristine reputation and gimbal reach. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?It is very large indeed, internal controls and bureaucracy can be a challenge. Compartmented in four big silos where by the botheration is far from seamless because of conflict of interest problems. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Nice. Lots of young people working hard and the physical environment is nice and professional.

The management is not interested in your career advancement. Projects given are sometime not aligned to your skillset. Managers do not have your back.

Stressful and low comp

Was fun before Covid until it wasn't. Very low compensation , not even close to the market. You do learn a lot and previously there were amazing people but things go downhill when you don't value your people.

Good place to work

Good place to work, but lots of restrictions due to tech audit clients. Lots of noise and lack of focus at the moment due to potential audit/consulting split

Global firm

Problem with promotion system

In the audit world, leadership is important, probably critical. Therefore manager level people are critical to the overall work experience. While managers that are promoted generally have high IQ's, the company needs to pay more attention to the leadership traits of employees promoted to manager. This is an under spoken topic in the firm. Employees are automatically promoted if they do well at staff/ senior, it doesn't mean they'll succeed as a manager. It's the difference between successful and unsuccessful experiences for all audit engagements and workers at the company. EY is failing here.


good development of learning, client interaction experience, good work benefits.


long hours, unpredictable working conditions.

Decent place overall

As you made it in, you are doing great already. The perks are fair and the workload usually would go heavy per anyone's expectation. Depending on the availabilities of projects you might juggle between a few in your typical week.

Contract position

In my short time at EY my management team was very helpful and I gain a lot of valuable knowledge from working there. My coworkers were friendly and very knowledgeable

Great learning experience

Lots to learn and lots of good resources. The new office is beautiful. The hours are definitely more compared to some other fields. But that is typical of consulting

Like all the other Big 4

Similar to all the other big 4 accounting firms. Really depends on the engagements you get and your manager. It can be a good enjoyable learning experience that you use a stepping stone or a complete waste of several years of your life that you could have spent working in industry directly instead to get your hours.

Great growing opportunity

EY offers world class culture built on developing their workers. Although turnover can be high, the areas for growth and improvement in your career never stops.

Great place to work

Capable staff and management. Good pay and benefits, not really focused on work life balance, but ultimately an excellent experience. Manageable expectations.

B4 Grind

Big 4 grind with none of the benefits., typical day is very stressful. You are just a cog in a big machine, be careful that you don't bite off more than you can chew.

A Number

Looking back, felt like just a number. Partners had no interest in employees career growth. Managers afraid to praise nor vouch for employees achievements. Generally everyone is absent minded and just trying to survive.


Fairly flexible hours


Lack of growth
