EY proves itself to be the right place for fresh grads and post grads to kickstart their corporate career with. There’s a lot of focus on continuous learning; be it from advanced excel to CFA, EY would love you for gaining knowledge(without leaving the firm, ofcourse). Talking about the work life balance, it entirely depends upon firstly, the kind of person you are and second, the vertical you get to work in. For example, if you’re flexible about working long hours voluntarily(don’t worry - everyone works long hours someday of their life), you understand the work volume that needs to be finished within the deadline and if you’re in the firm not alone for the salary but are passionate towards your work then this place is the right one for you. When you’re there at work, the organisation and its people would expect you to work upto you full utilisation and that’s totally legit in my opinion.
Salary to start with is very less as compared to other Big4s(the work culture in other places sucks though and that’s why the salary). Everyone needs a good pay, but in EY you need to be loyal to the firm for 3 or more years to earn the money you think of drawing(with good work performance).
Huge investments are made every year for innovation and automation work and thus you have tremendous opportunity to make your name in innovation.
Lastly, there are no work politics that I could find in here if you’re good at your work. If you’re not, people would want you to leave but of course EY as a workplace does not throw out employees but your team leader would make it difficult for you to exist in the firm provided you’re not productive( if you’ve heard something about PIP)

Dislikes

Salary is one and the only thing that hurts me everyday. Coming down to Bangalore from north India, there’s a lot of adjustment to be made because your salary wont allow you to live the decent life you lived at you home. Be mindful of this fact before working in here.

Work

Work depends upon the nature of vertical you work for, say in taxation, you’ll be facing the heat if the tax filing deadline is a month or couple of months away. Similarly, you’re found chilling out there on the floor when you’ve less work at hand.

The company is open for innovation and adopts latest technology and trends to stand out in the market which is why I joined this company. I m glad that i have been working with such a team that is high-quality oriented understands the concept and the purpose of performing the particular tasks and try to figure out every time how it's going to effect the company overall. I worked with the US based clients. Another plus point is that you get an opportunity to meet different people from different cultural background so it helps in building up confidence in maintaining a good balance in that work environment. You understand different prospective. I like the employee re-hire policy there. Also the fact that they always appreciate employees efforts and hard work by rewarding them (both the internal team and the onshore team).

Dislikes

Compensation is decent although but during busy seasons had to work really late and need to get on the calls every evening as per the onshore time. I do receive appreciation from the onshore as well as internal senior every week but it mostly go unnoticed during my mid-year appraisals. sometimes i had worked with seniors who were not into making a fresher understand what he/she is doing and guide instead they were more into just finishing up the task and get back to their own things. sometimes it made me realized that the work is not doing or bringing out best in me.

Work

My work was initially not that challenging, but as I was given my continues clients then it became quite challenging and sometime difficult to understand some work papers as i was handling that engagement completely my own after few weeks. it was a great

as i have heard that EY is really a good brand before working it was absolutely true after experienced it working with the company.awesome work environment, time to time activities etc.

Dislikes

my name is jitender kapoor.my ID is IN010M33298.i worked with this company from 21st march 2016 to 18th March 2107. my own team manager Sanjay Kansara is very cooperative, my friends, everything but the real problem is with service delivery team assistant manager (Saachi Jain). she was really a pathetic lady i have ever worked in my job life. she doesn't have the normal etiquette that how to maintain the environment in the team and how to talk with teammates.just because of her bad attitude so many people had to resign, the job. even i was forced to resigned and i did it because i cant take too much of pressure. i worked late till night at home for company but didn't get praised by anyone.i complained of Saachi Jain in the HR department even not me, so many people of her team has have complaint but no action has have been taken against her because she is the relative of Manish singhal senior personality working with EY since last 8 years. and now she got promoted as a manger in XBRL team. i would request you to take immediate action regarding Saachi Jain.so that in EY no other person has have to resign just because her. work enviornment is overall good.but when you are not getting any motivation from your service delivery. all is just useless of an employee. Thats it .
Thanks you so much.

The teammates are very learned. They are also knowledgeable and helpful when approached. The career growth is immense. If audit is something that you think is your call then you can see yourself working across shores, across cultures. There is no end to opportunities that come your way. The culture is very professional. EY is not a startup of course so there are a lot of rules which are understandable given the professional services we deliver. There is a lot of learning provided that the person is curious and shows interest in drilling more on a subject.

Dislikes

The work-life balance is not given a lot of importance. There are months when the work pressure is too much to handle. We work for 12 hours a day. This is specific to Audit. Also, you have to be really good with your networking skills in order to make yourself visible. Visibilty is something that is held high and you'll be hunt down of you just want to sit at your desk all day and not interact with people around.
There are a very few office parties. Literally two in a year which are EY sponsored, if I talk about EY GDS. Sometimes at associate level, the nature of work might get quite clerical and repetitive but that sure does improve if you show dedication and the will to learn.

The employee friendly organization, that is what I can say. I had a wonderful time when I was there in EY. From the day I received a call for interview till the day I resigned I can say it was wonderful. Equality is something that EY believes in. We had so much oppurtunity to improve our technical skills and proffessional skill. There was so many fun loving activities for entertainment as well. EY life was the best days for me. Once I stepped out of EY and started attending interviews I realised the value EY aaded to my career, it is suc a proudful thing to say that I am an ex employee of one among the Big Four Ernst and Young.

Dislikes

To be frank, I couldn’t find anything wrong about the place I liked most😊 I never had a feeling that I was in my office, it was like my second home and hence no dislikes 😊

Work

It was exciting and challeging. We had multiple clients from multiple locations and was getting very good exposure

The Operations specialist is a functional support role. People not interested in core technical support can opt for this role. The team I am in currently is a mix of different kind of people and not many are happy with their jobs or the immediate management. However, you do have good people and is fun if you find your match. Career growth withing the team is almost nill as we have too many leads and they are all stuck at the same lot for years. Can't be sure of the job security as the team might or might not be outsourced. Jan to April is the tax busy season and you will be piled with lots of work and life will.be hectic. The pressure can get to you sometimes. No travel involved. I understand there is enough politics going on within the team. I would suggest to stay away from the role and look for better opportunities. But if you do join then you can move internally within EY to find a role suitable for you and the policy is very good. You just need to complete one year.

Working at EY has been a jumping jack for my career. It offers global exposure, learning opportunities, healthy peer to peer conversation opportunities, great work-life balance, makes you become a better human, focuses on your career growth, helps you develop your skills and most importantly possesses great brand value and legacy in the market that fits your career needs.

Dislikes

Compensation shouldn't be an area of concern as the trend of handsome pay packages will go down globally. We have to become more utilized and efficient in order to sustain in this ever changing digital global mindset. Salary hike will go towards negligible amounts in years to come and the one who possesses great in-demand skills should be able to survive. It is with all global organizations and not just with EY. But not to forget, the one who works hard will get good remuneration benefits too. So the idea is to stick to an organization like EY and give a direction to your career.

Work

Work at EY is fantastic.

A rotten organization with no work ethics, there is nothing is to be liked about EY GDS Gurgaon

Dislikes

Your life will be miserable while working here. There is a well thought plan laid by the Senior Management where they would harness everything good you have got and will then start humiliating you about the things which hardly even matters. These people will make sure to pressurize you to an extent you'll finally broke and they will then frame charges against you. If you are good with boot licking you have got the bright prospects here but if you want to work here purely on merit, they don't need it. It is one of the worst organization culture you can think of. Be aware they are hunting for new resources every time and will catch you in their evil nets by showing so called BIG 4 branding, please do not fall for it, it's a trap. It's a group of 8 people stays as is in upper management and rest all junior staff changes every year ( Except Boot lickers and charming girls)

The company is the best place to work as per various surveys and has great work and life balance. The company do promote innovation and exhibits potential employees with awards and achievements during the work journey. Career growth is steady with a cycle of Oct - Sept cycle. It does evolve Open door policy with ease to talk to leadership at any given time.

Dislikes

The people around has to be little more engaged with other employees and have more connected relationship than doing favoritism. Managers should also promote best work culture for the company leaving behind past companies work cultures that would affect employees mindset towards teams.

Work

In a consultation field, EY promotes more Onsite - Off shore model approach with work coming from various Onsite teams and we at EY Advisory help them achieve their dream implementation projects.
