Good for developmental opportunities

Featured review

EY selected this as a representative review
No day is the same, great for networking and building new connections. Lots of opportunities available for personal growth. Is a people orientated organisation, most difficult part of the job is to juggle many tasks at once and manage expectations of key stakeholders. Working and collaborating with many different people is the most enjoyable part.

Great place to work

EY have a great culture. Everyone is helpful and supportive. The work life balance is as you'd expect in audit with busy periods towards year ends, however there is great flexibility to work where and when you like outside of this as long as you get the work done.

Not as rewarding as advertised

The company itself is alright to work for with decent enough perks (AL Buy and Sell, Private Healthcare, Bonus Scheme and Flexible working). However, the job itself is monotonous, and there is still an air of snobbery about many people within the company. Worth bearing in mind.


Good Perks


Expected unpaid overtime in busy periods

Fun and Educational

Week long Business Academy at EY gives a great insight into the workings of a Financial Services Firm. Great people, who were very friendly and supportive and taught me a lot.

Fun work place

The company need to look into salary and promotion properly. Staff are under paid for the amount of work they deliver but working from home has been a blessing

Long hours and poor pay

Long hours, low pay, no bonus, poor middle management, partners too removed to set realistic goals.Pros: good junior workforce, although 95% will leave when qualified

Fun and excellent place

The company's commitment to excellence, innovation, and collaboration is evident in its supportive and inclusive culture. I have had the opportunity to work on high-profile projects with innovative clients, contributing to real-world solutions that make a difference. The firm also prioritizes professional development and provides exceptional mentorship and training. I appreciate the company's focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, creating a welcoming workplace for all employees. Additionally, the firm's commitment to corporate responsibility and giving back to the community is admirable. Overall, I highly recommend this Big 4 consultancy as an employer. It offers a dynamic and challenging work environment, exceptional professional development opportunities, and a culture that fosters growth, inclusion, and impact.

Lack of direction

Each change of management/upper management introduced changes. No bad thing at all, however it became directionless at times with too many changes being rolled out without any joined up thinking. Frustrating.

fun and challenging

great workplace to start your career and puts .It can be helpful to leave space at the bottom of your written review to write down these questions and concerns. As your employee responds, acknowledge and address each topic during your conversation, and write notes in that section. This shows that you are dedicated to both listening and retaining what your employee has to say. After your meeting, send the employee an updated version of the review with the notes you have taken. Small follow-ups like this are appreciated by employees.

Great Flexibility

EY is a great place to work regarding flexibility of hours etc - good benefits and holiday entitlement, pay always seems to be slightly under that of other Big 4 and not transparent on pay grades. But overall a good place to work.

Great working environment

The staff at EY are very helpful and want you to succeed. There is also a lot of room for growth and development through qualifications/ certifications.

Stressful place to work

There are some nice people here but overall it is a machine. Very stressful environment and you can expect to be working well beyond your contracted hours every day.


Good pay if you progress enough


Long hours, just a cog in a machine

Long hours

Long hours and too large a company. The salary and perks were good but you are expected to work late into the evening and the workload was very high. Managers very demanding and never felt appreciated as a member of support staff.

Great Experience but

I spent a great 3 years at EY which has been a brilliant foundation for my career. However, after 3 years the work began to feel repetitive and I felt it was best to change companies as there is a slight feeling of uncertainty around the company.


Very inclusive culture, flexible working culture is really good and it is possible to be truly flexible, great colleagues who are fun the hang out with, good office location in London, the client exposure from day 1 is something I couldnt have got in most companies


Pay is not reflective of the work you are doing, I could only justify the job on the basis of the experience I was getting rather than current pay, some colleagues can be slightly talkative behind your back

Good on CV, lack of enjoyable work

There’s no doubt that will do well having the name on your cv, and the qualifications with assurance and tax.However, as a consultant who has moved from STEM, I found that most of the work done could be simplified, and is made to sound complex by corporate jargon, which is likely true of the overall industry (FS). You may find a difference in other service lines (more tech focused) but I find the work in business consulting rather dull.

Great job for a graduate‘s first job

A lot to learn for new beginners. Surrounded by nice intellectual and respectful colleagues. Partners are approachable. If you work in UK&I assurance line, be prepared to have stocktake in during holidays like Christmas, new year, etc. Other than that, I pretty like the company!


Great team, training opportunities, nice and respectful colleagues


Long hours, sacrifice personal time from time to time
