    There is a genuine work life balance which you don't get in other consulting positions. The is also generally a flat structure within the company, you can approach anyone for help.

    It is very professional
    you feel like you're part of a culture
    There are many opportunities to network with people from different areas of the business as an intern

    You might have to work overtime to finish the work load
    The work for the Interns wasn't as organized as it could have been

    Pros

    Great friendly culture
    Lots of training
    Great development opportunities

    Cons

    Worried about the future of audit- will it exist in 10-15 years? I'm sure EY and the other big four firms will find ways to adapt.

    I have been working at EY as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Get to work towards an accounting qualification, good starting point for your career. Some members of staff are friendly and you rely on them to get past the days

    Cons

    Extremely low morale within Audit at the moment, the turnover of staff is at critical levels. There is too much pressure on client margins. There is NO work life balance. Interns and first years are expected to work weekends and during busy season past 9pm. Just this week we received an email saying we should be working 50 hour weeks minimum. There is no formal process in place for intern support, the feedback system is flawed. Management are not caring whatsoever. You can't choose your clients, resourcing is a TOTAL mess in the London office.

    Honestly, if you're applying for EY for an internship, you're obviously clever and have the grades. My advice: You're worth so much more than this slave labour job!

    Advice to Management

    We aren't resources, we are people, we aren't going to work our weekends for free and don't act so surprised when someone actually says no.
