    I have been working at EY full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The new office in Edinburgh is a great place to work and I've found colleagues very friendly and supportive being new to Edinburgh. EY's flexible working policy is one of the best and I can work from home when it suits me. There's always a social event going on and a drinks trolley on a Friday at 4:30pm with donations to charity which is a fun way to start the weekend and chat to colleagues!

    Cons

    The location on Morrison Street isn't great for me as I live on the other side of town
