    I have been working at EY full-time

    Pros

    Interesting variety of work
    Good exposure to top notch clients if you’re in banking in London
    Good people culture. A lot of focus on work life balance. Productivity is measured based on your delivery, not time in the office
    Supports flexible working for all employees at all levels
    Very diverse and people feel free to be themselves.

    Cons

    Hours can be long when booked on demanding engagement. But this is compensated by unbooked time where you can practically go to work and do very little or nothing

    Promotion and progression process could be made more transparent

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about the criteria for promotion and progression. This is often vague

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY (London, England) in October 2016.

    Interview

    After filling out the online form and taking the online tests I had a telephone interview with a recruitment coordinator from EY. The interview was a strength based discussion, to assess whether I had the right skills to succeed at EY. The phone call was fairly relaxed, with the interviewer asking a total of five or six questions, regarding my key skills and experiences.
