Audit Manager (Current Employee) – National Capital Region – 14 August 2018
As an audit manager, I manage more or less 20 engagements each fiscal year. These are composed of companies in various industries ranging from financial institutions, manufacturing, construction, sugar trading, professional services, retail companies and others.
This load is over and above the average number of engagements handled by other audit managers. As such, I have to render extended hours in the office almost every day.
In terms of experience and learning, I must say the Firm has made available every opportunity for me to embrace.

Senior Consultant - Global Immigration (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 May 2018
Typical day in the office, was to work solo with no interaction from other members of the team. Each team member would work in silo and converse over email rather than face to face (even though we mostly sat on the same floor).
Management did not understand the team struggles, nor listen to ways to improve the team and processes.
Audit Associate Intern (Former Employee) – Depends on clients – 14 April 2018
Managers are patient, seniors are generally friendly. All you need is just initiative. Show that you want to learn. Don't wait for work to come. But, ask for work. There are certainly many rooms of opportunity in EY environment.

MANAGER, STRATEGY SERVICES (CONTRACT) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 March 2018
This is a very big company who hasn't figured out how to harness the value of experienced hires. Although it is meant to be a collaborative and feedback oriented culture, I did not find this. "Collaboration" is not the same as "divide and conquer"! There is a lot of arrogance and talking about your importance vs really focusing on what the client needs.
An essential part of any professional's business education and experience
Business Risk Consultant (Former Employee) – Kuwait – 31 January 2018
Big Four firms are known for the tough working environment and the lack of work life balance but EY in my opinion is the most advanced out of all the Big 4 in terms of producing well-rounded professionals who can work under pressure and produce great quality work.
