Not bad

Indeed featured review

Perks and socials are good but difficult to make time for training you need/want to undertake. Difficult to be in control of which projects you work on

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

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

Good place to start career

You learn a lot and are exposed to diverse work. On the whole, people are very friendly although the environment can be quite intense and competitive.

Great work/life balance

Great place to work if you value work/life balance and ability to work from home, which is incentivised to do at least 1 day/week. Great business but to much focused on audit rather than advisory.

Fun and engaging workplace

Long hours but rewarding and challenging work. Diverse and wide ranging culture and types of work to undertake. Good potential to progress. Became quite political the more senior you become.

Building a Better working world

EY is a global firm with multiple opportunities across the globe and industries. The best thing about working in EY is the ease of slipping into both ownership role for an engagement or working as a part of a large team. Flexible times and friendly working atmosphere from the top management makes it a sound place for a work-life balance.

Day starts early, sometimes even at bed time when a mail requesting urgent action comes in on work phone. Depending on the project, I may either be required to work at client site and travel or can be based at head office or able to work from home if I am just working there is a need to work late, meet deadlines. There is a lot of liaising, meeting, researching, analysing, reporting and creating hypothesis, graphs, charts and power point presentations. Some days I might be working on business development work identifying ways to impress and pitch a client through slides as a response to a tender. Occasionally I am required to collate databases for an internal piece around knowledge management. Co-workers: There are most that are friendly and approachable to some that are acerbic. All strive for high quality work and look out for their clients and their own interests. Hardest part of the job: assessment and deliverance of quality from various perspectives, communicating with a range of stakeholders and attempting to meet everyones' expectations. Most enjoyable part of the job: range of opportunities that different projects might provide.


Range of opportunities in various sectors for experience


Frequent travelling depending on project
