    Pros

    Challenging, interesting work, great colleagues

    Cons

    All the usual issues with working in a federated organisation - but increased exponentially as RY is a global organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Remember you have to speculate to accumulate, and investing in IT is a good speculation that needs to be looked upon as a long term investment.

    Pros

    The following pros and cons are relevant to a UK regional offuce

    Progressive culture - managers are friendly, social and collaborative atmosphere (at least at my level)
    Good internal opportunities at career prospects once qualified
    Very well structured training environment
    Exposure to a variety of clients and industries
    Our client-based work is varied and interesting

    Cons

    Salaries at EY are lower than other Big 4 audit positions
    The hours in audit are long on certain clients during the year end audit
    Future opportunities at the firm can be uninspiring; managers and seniors work long hours for pay which is much lower compared to industry/ low compared to other professions which work similar hours
    Pay is low for a graduate job that advertises itself as a prestigious opportunity, thought still perfectly good

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be friendly and helpful to the first year graduates, but don't kill yourself working

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

    Pros

    Well structured day, with intensive activities which were very interesting and enabled me to get a better understanding of EY people, culture and lines of service.

    Cons

    There was no time left for feedback, current employees which seemed at times lost in the speed at which actitvties were going and which were not very helpful at times with questions that they were asked

    Advice to Management

    Rotate students across different groups, and give more feedback. Give programme leaflet for the day to every attendees. Give goodies at the end as they all formed a mess during the day.
