Dynamic workplace

You’ll learn a lot working at EY. Might not be for everyone but it can definitely give you lots of exposure in a short amount of time. Depending on which team you land, they are generally supportive.

Some people are really toxic

Not bad place to gain experience but its " corporate " culture. It all depends upon your manager, they can make a real difference in your experience.


Learning opportunities


Most of it is superficial

Work overtime and low salary

Good team culture and social events.Don't work here if you don't have passion on your work.Work under pressure and no life.But managers love the work, so that's part of their lives.

good for career progression

It can be nice to be in a large corporate organisation that has lots of systems and processes. - Ridiculously low level of work provided to new starters. I spent weeks just renaming and dropping files. - Don’t care about employees and it’s all a sham. They stopped having meetings with me and just lost touch with me when I was having personal difficulties

Lots to learn

Culture has definitely improved here. Experience would definitely depend on who you get as a Counsellor though. People here do feel very phoney and fake but that's to be expected when everyone's trying to step on each other for promotions.

Ok Company

It's ok and lots of social event.But everyone in there work for themselves so if your team don't want to include you you are fked. To many smalls groups within one team.

Good place to work for,rems are not bad. Your happiness depends on the team you work with and partner. Good clients although it is stressful. Low bonus policy

Over hyped

EY is an overhyped workplace with zero Job security. No focus on one's aspirations or skills, you just have to do whatever client requests. Good for graduates or entry level who got great zest & stress management skills
Was this review helpful?

the offices are quite spacious.

a good place to learn and improve your skills. it has a collaborative culture so junior members will fill comfortable to be led into their new roles.

Good pay, long hours

Good pay, long hours. Good team members for the most part, and rewarding in terms of salary if you stick it out. Clear career progression and hierarchy if you stay in the role long enough, only becomes merit based at more senior levels.

Good work culture, supportive leadership and engaging work

Supportive senior leadership, although that varies with the team you're in. Work involves engagement with senior client stakeholders so strong presentation and communication skills will be helpful. Work culture has somewhat dampened due to WFH and seems to have impacted the visibility of employees in their early careers.

Good branding, poor management

They know their branding, they know their target audience, they know their turnover rate. Everyone is replaceable, everyone is for themselves. Don't disappoint and you will build a close network, otherwise they will replace you like a tool like any other employee. Politics cannot be sensed from interviews, senior analysts are often under resources across all the big 4s, make sure you understand the expectation and support system in place.

DnA - Toxic at best

The culture is toxic for the lack of a better word. There is no teaming, only pulling someone down for your own gains. Merit and knowledge are secondary, being heads down and saying yes to everything your boss says is primary. The counselors aren't interested in anyone's career growth except their own and employees are left on their own to fend for their careers paths, no guidance whatsoever. Team mates who have been in the company since graduates or whoever has spent more time than you, are treated with greater affinity and considered for promotions regardless of their knowledge or skills. Only skill you need to survive is being able to talk no matter what the subject is. Thought leadership is undervalued and selling skills are overvalued. Those who are on a specialist path like techinal programmers or developers are treated secondary to those who are on generalist path. The quality work and experience you bring to the table will be stolen by someone and made theirs, thats the way it works here at EY unfortunately.

Highly competitive environment

Global reputation; progressive work culture. Steep learning curve. However, the job is highly demanding and competitive. You can only move up or move out.
Was this review helpful?

Fast-paced work. A wide variety, however you do not have control over what work you want.

Hardest part is getting put on completely different pieces of work which takes a while to adjust and onboard. This does help greatly with learning but you don't have control over what work you want to work on.


Decent salary


Long hours, tight deadlines.
