Growth environment

Indeed Featured review

Good guidance to grow skills in the job but may be stressful at times with long hours expected. Team is collaborative and generally supportive of one another.

fast pace and evolving place

Typical large, fast-paced organization that requires you to focus on multiple tasks at once. Nice coworker, but there is a staff shortage and long working hours. Need to do bd in addition to projects

Great learning environment but subpar compensation

Good experience as I mostly worked with helpful A/S/AM as team members who were hardworking and patient. Only saw M/SM occasionally and they always look stress. See luck.Hardest part was going home because client office (worked them most of the time to access documents easily) was 1.5 hours away by public transport, and there's a consensus (pretty sure laid down by M/SM for budgeting reasons) to only work till 8 so cannot claim cab. Team members continue working from home thereafter.Most enjoyable was being able to put education/theory into practice, essentially learning something new every week.Chose not to convert because low starting salary, long working hours (9-8pm even as intern) and shifting interest towards finance.

Pros

Brand name

Cons

Long hours

Audit is audit

Expect long hours during peak. 9:30am - 6pm and 9pm-2am. Management and team depends on luck. You get micromanagers and managers who trust your work.High turnover means you have to pick up slack.

Good starting place

Stayed here for almost 4 years. Good place to start. Quite structured organisation so you know what to expect. Be prepared to bounce between projects that you will have no control in choosing; if you're lucky you get good project and team, if not then there's little you can do about it other than see it through.

Pros

Interesting Projects

Cons

Low Compensation

Good place to learn, however ...

For assurance, EY is a good place to learn as with other big 4s, but you have to be proactive if not it is just working on different engagements and you will not feel motivated to improve and learn. With its diverse clientele, you can gain good commercial knowledge, but again there is if you are proactive enough to find out more either from your managers or clients. Bad part of the firm is you are almost always double booked for engagements which is not ideal.

Productive and fun culture

A nice place to start off your early career. Great training and development opportunities. A lot of chances to travel around but not much time to enjoy life.

Pros

Fancy office and nice perks

Cons

long hours

Mixed Feelings

The people you work with are mostly great. As a fresh grad, you will be working with people of the same age group and it feels like being back in university again. The relationships I've built here were a plus point. However, work life balance is poor to non-existent at times. Managers will contact you and expect you to work till the wee hours, even on weekends, especially during the peak period. Although EY has a good structure in place for your career progression, you will be under-compensated for the amount of time spent at work especially if you're in assurance. If work life balance and high salary is important to you, this is not for you. If you like a job that's fast-paced, constantly changing then go for it.

Pros

Insurance coverage, OT meal expense, great people

Cons

Long hours, Low Salary

Will not recommend working there

Management do not appreciate staff as they view staff as dispensable. Hours are long and it's pretty hard to take leave. Planning of leave is pretty difficult as well as leave only gets approved 1 month prior to the actual leave.

Good for graduates only

Too much influence from 1 particular country's culture permeating the firm's management style Good for graduates Long hours, bad benefits, the intent is to squeeze every drop from the staff Salary is market-level

Fast-paced and tight timelines

Am audit career is a good career pathway for someone who wants to go on to be an audit partner or financial controller as it allows you to review and learn about various types of companies in a short span of time which is not experienced elsewhere in other non-audit firms i.e commercial companies. You pay for the experience with overtime and imbalanced work-life situation.

Good place to start your career, but not a place to stay

EY is a huge global company which spans four different service lines and 100+ countries. Your experience will differ greatly from country to country and team to team.

Competitive Workplace

A competitive workplace, but offers great exposure to the tax services industry. I will definitely recommend this place for internship, even though the learning curve can be steep, it is worth the experience because you get to learn a lot more than you would expect.

Pros

Cons

management team is not skilled and strategic
