Good working culture - WLB is good and team are respectful of personal boundaries. The people culture is good - EY is a diverse workplace and employees feel respected.
There aren't enough project opportunities for grads. Many grads in my cohort including high performers are struggling to get on to projects. A lot of grads feel they aren't developing or building useful experience. Many grads are pushed into internal roles with little perceived development value. In my service line, many senior people work from home, making it hard to build connections and limiting the scope for mentorship and learning. Sentiment/morale is low. Leadership has been very disorganised following Everest. Messaging from senior leadership is very defensive. Sporadic rounds of layoffs are happening suddenly with very little comms.

Friendly environment and visa benefits.
Too much work load and salary is not compatible. People are pushing only those who know each other . And someone working alot cannot get promotion cannot get good salary

Excellent salary, especially for graduates. Good for graduates who are still figuring out what they want to do in life.
People and politics - everyone is there for the money, and most of us don't have any real skills beyond sending emails, so people are always on their guard and there's a lot of finger-pointing, blame games and internal politics. Bad client solutions - because the team lacks skills, we usually produce painfully bad solutions for clients, and then try to sell them with a fancy presentation.

Working at EY offers a dynamic environment with ample opportunities for professional growth. The firm emphasizes a strong work-life balance, fosters a collaborative culture, and provides extensive training. EY's commitment to diversity and inclusion, coupled with cutting-edge projects, makes it an ideal place for individuals seeking a rewarding and challenging career.
While EY boasts a vibrant workplace, some may find the pace demanding. The hierarchical structure could lead to occasional bureaucratic hurdles. Balancing client demands may pose a challenge for those seeking a more predictable schedule. However, these nuances are outweighed by the overall enriching experience EY offers.

Good culture and community. Settled in very quickly
Already doing 75 hour weeks in my first few months, contract states 35 hours.

People are genuinely nice I love the people at the office. HR also really helpful.
Lots of technicals about the job so if you're not interested, it can get quite exhausting

- Can give you good opportunities to work with some great clients
At the Director level and above, everything seemed like they are in it for themselves and there aren't many people that really look after your interests. Too many people that only know how to put a nice presentation together and get the promoted off the back of it but wouldn't really cut it when working in a tough financial services client.2
