Unfriendly team, not open to change
Senior Consultant - Global Immigration (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 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.
Pros
Easy walk to work
Cons
No team

It is a hellhole.
Senior Tax Executive (Current Employee) –  Sindh6 May 2018
The culture at the firm is discouraging and authoritarian. The management does not harness you best abilities and try to demotivate you at every possible corner.

They are milking the name of a BIG 4, where they demand a lot from you and provide nothing in return. Its heart wrenching.
Pros
The name of EY
Cons
To many to mention

Assurance Practice (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC9 April 2018
EY is a great company but the Vancouver office has a mediocre culture. There are plenty of events. Generally the managers are good. Staff work hard. Long hours.

Senior Associate, Assurance Practice (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS9 April 2018
This is the best place to work. Hard work and long hours but it is fun and social and has a great work culture. I had to leave to move back home but I would have worked here forever.

Experienced hires not well handled
MANAGER, STRATEGY SERVICES (CONTRACT) (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 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.
Pros
Interesting projects; diverse clients
Cons
Long grueling hours; unclear work description

Senior Tax Advisor (Former Employee) –  British Columbia13 February 2018
The motto "work hard; play hard" is probably something uttered only by liars. High turnover may be a trouble reality, but it's also the business model!

An essential part of any professional's business education and experience
Business Risk Consultant (Former Employee) –  Kuwait31 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.

Great people, terrible hours
Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 January 2018
- Great people to work with
- Leadership is fantastic
- The hours are poor and are progressively getting worse. No non-busy season hours anymore; you're in busy season throughout the year
- If work-life balance isn't your thing then there's no better place than EY.
