Company culture

People are definitely willing to help out. “EY Nice” is a thing, it's definitely something that's visible. People are willing to help you if you're doing what you're supposed to do. Socially, they've done a good job about speaking out about racism and protests, given recent events. There's obviously room for improvement, but they've done better than the standard. But also, that is the tone on the top, it doesn't necessarily trickle down. In forensics, there aren't that many Black people especially in our service line. They are rolling out some diversity initiatives, so we'll see how that goes.
July 7, 2020

Relationships with manager(s)

When I first started, I was a little nervous to reach out to them, but now that I've gotten used to everything, they're definitely available. If you establish a pretty good relationship with them, they'll give you good career advice. I actually just had a conversation with my manager about career progression. You just have to put yourself out there for that relationship, especially if you're working on a large team. On some projects you'll have a team of 40-50 people, so you have to put in more effort to get connected to your manager.
July 7, 2020

Application and interview process

The process was VERY quick. I started as an intern, so when you go straight from an intern you don't have to apply again. When I applied for the internship, I filled out my application, did a phone interview the next day, and flew out for an office interview within 2 weeks, and then heard back within 1 week of the office interview.
July 7, 2020

Training and career development

There's definitely access to mentorship, however, the ownness is on that person. When you first start, the firm gives you a peer advisor (someone on the same level but a year ahead) and then you have a counselor (someone at manager level). Your counselor is the person you go to with any issues you may have. Your counselor is also your advocate when it comes to promotion opportunities - definitely make sure you have a great relationship with them, if you don't you have the option to switch counselors. Any mentorship outside of that, you have to establish yourself.

Relationships with manager(s)

My managers, outside of 2, have all been pretty supportive, available, genuine, and really represent EY well. I've had managers that were bigots, or made you feel like you were Black. There are always bad apples. I've had managers that weren't there to build me up, or make me better.
July 7, 2020

Diversity programs

I do think the diversity programs are genuine. Diverse people run the diversity programs. We have a Black Executive Roundtable which is a very raw, real event - the things that are run by minorities for their people work to create a sense of community. What seems unauthentic is their recruiting at HBCUs. They pass on a lot of good candidates - I think they put a cap on the amount of HBCU students they take in. I'm sure there are some numbers behind what they do. The Launch Internship is an authentic experience. It's a rotational internship for racial minorities (Black, Latinx, Native Americans). You get a taste of everything that's offered at EY. It's a great way to be able to snag the full-time internship (and hopefully the full-time offer).
July 7, 2020

Company culture

From a minority standpoint, I think the firm is very accepting and empowering. You have a voice from day 1. You can do what you want to do, you just have to speak up. Work-life balance has been great. It's 100% project-dependent - I haven't worked past 5 PM in the last year and a half. The odd thing about working in consulting is that you can have a completely different experience as someone just based on projects you're on. They do encourage time off. They look down on you if you're not taking your time off. They kind of force you to take it.
July 7, 2020

Training and career development

Leadership is very accessible. They make it very easy to meet with leadership.

Relationships with manager(s)

When they were bad, they were BAD, but when they're good they were GOOD.
July 29, 2020

Training and career development

They strongly encourage you to do coffee chats with partners. I have a counseling connect lead (at the partner level) who I have a very good relationship with. The more that they know about you, the more inclined they are to support/promote/help you.
July 29, 2020

Company culture

I have a good work-life balance because I know when to put my computer down. I also feel very supported within the firm. I have the ability to take mental-health days. You make it what it is. EY supports you in what you need for your life.
July 29, 2020

Diversity programs

They've given me a space to be comfortable and be around people who look like me and have similar experiences. It allows me to have a safe-space. I don't think I would still be there without the support of the diversity programs.
July 29, 2020

Diversity programs

There's room for improvement in terms of diversity programs. Sometimes it feels like they just want to check a box.

Relationships with manager(s)

The manager that I work with the most has been great. He vouches for me more than anyone else. He makes sure I'm on the projects I want to be on and puts me in spaces where I can learn and grow in my career.
July 10, 2020

Training and career development

We have to take a certain number of hours of training a year - some is assigned based on position level (for staff 2 you have to travel for in-person training) and then some is online/video training.
July 10, 2020

Diversity programs

I think they still need work, but after the recent events, our firm has definitely made changes in those areas.
July 10, 2020

Diversity programs

The people in my Black community groups always vouch for me and are my advocates. They always have my back. One time I was short a review for one of the review cycles, and someone within my group wrote one for me.
July 10, 2020

Company culture

I feel like I can be myself at work depending on the group that I'm with. If I know the people previously or outside of work, I am usually more comfortable.

Salary and benefits

Sometimes I feel like EY is a little cheap, especially in comparison to the big three, but the big 3 works you a lot harder, so it evens out. I think pay is comparable to Accenture, PwC, Deloitte, and those type of firms.
September 17, 2020

Diversity programs

On the lower level, the company could have done better around the BLM movement. I had friends talking about how their co-workers kept reaching out to check in on them, but I didn't get much of that myself. I think people were uncomfortable doing it, but if you're a good co-worker, you'll make yourself uncomfortable and reach out to people.
September 17, 2020

Company culture

It's not super tight at all, and things are flexible. I can step away from work to get a haircut or go to an appointment anytime. I enjoy the culture at EY for the most part.
September 17, 2020

Promotion discussions

I had the initial conversation with my counselor in May, and then there wasn't much additional conversation until August when he told me I got promoted.
September 17, 2020

Company culture

I like EY. I get along with people that I work with pretty consistently. It took me a while to come out of my shell. The switch to corporate america from school was a little tough, and it took me a while to get comfortable.

Relationships with manager(s)

I had a run in with a senior on a project that was super inappropriate, but he got reported to HR and the firm handled it really well.
October 2, 2020

Training and career development

Training was okay. The initial consulting training is 2 weeks in Atlanta, but you couldn't really pick what you wanted to do most of the time. It was based on need.
October 2, 2020

Relationships with manager(s)

My managers loved me. I still shoot them texts. Most of them were white men and women. They were awesome. I think part of it was because I came in being myself. I spoke up when I saw something I didn't like. I also did a good job.
October 2, 2020

Promotion discussions

The feedback process is more dicey. There's no way to gauge how you're doing. Your coach has to present you, and if you have a coach that is more shy or isn't a great orator, you can get screwed. EY has since changed the process to where instead of having a counselor, you have a scatterplot type thing counselor and a Partner that represents you. They read the actual feedback that you're given and make the case for you to get promoted.
October 2, 2020

Training and career development

Nepotism and cronyism were pretty high. We had a lot of people that were part of cliques in the office based on where they went to school in NC, so it was hard to penetrate those cliques because they were run by a lot of white people from different backgrounds.

June 30, 2020

Company culture

The team atmosphere is good. The “people culture” is definitely something they pride themselves in. There aren't that many POC in my office, but it's still a solid work environment. You're also working with a lot of young people, so I feel like it's easy to relate to people and build those connections outside of work. We're very team based, so you engage with people a lot - you're always with your team.
June 30, 2020

Application and interview process

I interned at the firm through college. I interviewed while I was still in school, but within the recruiting process, there were alot of firms coming to my school. EY definitely made the company look pleasing, so I was drawn to it. With my experience, it went smooth because the interviews were very conversational. They'd obviously ask the challenging questions, but they also just wanted to know who I was.
June 30, 2020

Training and career development

There's no formal mentorship program, but there are people that seek you out and they'll become your mentor or sponsor. They are people who want to see you succeed. The firm is constantly trying to give you feedback. There is formal feedback on how to develop more, or what you are doing good at. There's also informal coaching that happens on the job. But that will depend on the team you're on.
June 30, 2020

Company culture

Work-life balance is definitely hard. I do auditing, so there's a really large busy-season. There's pressure to be a high-performer and being Black at the firm, you always want to prove yourself. It was totally different than the internship, when you come on full-time there is no flexibility and you can't really take time for yourself. Most people have jobs where you can take time for yourself at night, but I don't have that.
June 30, 2020

Training and career development

When I first joined, my team was really trying to develop me and my learning. The people genuinely want to invest in you. We have web-based education. We have this platform where you can learn anything you want to do. It's very resourceful.

August 6, 2020

Salary and benefits

I think compensation is great. I've looked around and think that it's good. To some extent, it's comparable across firms I've consistently been at the higher end of the range since I have been at the top of my group. I don't know what it will be like this year because of COVID, but the firm has done a great job of not letting people go and has be very transparent throughout the entire process.
August 6, 2020

Relationships with manager(s)

I've been lucky. My managers adapted by figuring out how I work. It was a give and take where they invested in me, and I wanted to work hard because they supported me and invested time in me. I took ownership for when I screwed up and made sure not to make the same mistake.
August 6, 2020

Company culture

It's one of the most supportive and inclusive environments. I've been able to network and meet great people. Recently, we've realized that people aren't getting the same opportunities because of COVID, and so we've been trying hard to find ways to get people to connect. I'm honestly a little scared to leave the firm because the culture might not be culture at whatever company I go to next.
August 6, 2020

Application and interview process

I didn't have a dedicated recruiter at my school, but I was able to learn about how inclusive the culture was. As a student I got the chance to attend a program called EY Elements of Success hosted by the EY Latino and Black Professional Networks (“LPN” and “BPN”, respectively. The program brings in students that aren't at schools they recruit at (“target schools”), and is designed to provide underrepresented minority students from local colleges/universities insight into the world of professional services. I thought to myself “this firm really aligns with my values."

Training and career development

We have our regular year-to-year training, which I'm not sure I gained too much from that. I had done a lot of it before with my internships.
July 29, 2020

Company culture

I can't be myself at work. My practice is very small, and there are only a handful of black people in this practice. I was actually the only black person in this practice in my office, which is why I kind of stay away from office events because I can't show my full self.
July 29, 2020

Accessibility

We have some kind of hotline where you can call in and talk to a professional. They also gave us a guide for mental health resources we can contact.
July 29, 2020

Relationships with manager(s)

On my current project, I've worked with a handful of managers. My main point of contact is excellent. He's always making sure I'm not being overworked. He's always checking in and encouraging me to take time off if he knows I haven't in a while. He's just very concerned about the quality of work, but also making sure that I'm good mentally and not overworking myself. They've always made themselves available for questions.
July 29, 2020

Company culture

Typically, the workload isn't too too bad. It will depend on your project and what practice you're in. The expectation to work 40 hours a week is something you shouldn't expect, you'll always work more. However, most teams are understanding of your personal life. Communication is key in these situations. My team has been pretty open to me taking time off as long as I communicate upfront.

Relationships with manager(s)

I have 2 managers. One is in the NY office and she's nice and is always there to answer questions. I haven't really needed to utilize them, but they are available. When we were in the office, she always made sure our team sat together.
August 5, 2020

Diversity programs

They could be better about recruiting people of color.
August 5, 2020

Company culture

I love my team. They're super nice and always want to get to know people and have happy hours and spend time together. There's not that much diversity - there are 30-40 people and there are only 3 Black people.
August 5, 2020

Training and career development

When you first join, you get a peer advisor, counselor and a global counselor. I joined the forensics diversity network and they also gave me a mentor. My peer advisor is on the same team as me and I always go to her. She's always asking how I am and taking me to little lunch dates. My forensics counselor also checks on me and makes sure I'm still happy in my career. I've told him about my career aspirations and he's helping me to prepare for that.

Benefits are really good - lots of vacations, resources for different stages in your life, health benefits that I didn't know were a thing. One of the ways they've supplemented lower salary is definitely through benefits.
August 29, 2020

Diversity programs

A lot of the diversity initiatives that I have seen thus far have been really great. Every year they have EY Unplugged which provides an opportunity for Black and LatinX first-years to come together. Seeing the representation across the firm was huge. It was a great experience and I'm glad they do that every year.
August 29, 2020

Company culture

Company culture at EY is very interesting and I like it a lot. In my starting class, I was the only Black person and I thought I wouldn't be able to be my full self, but everyone was really nice and personable. Everyone is inviting and welcoming of people from all different walks of life.
August 29, 2020

Company culture

After the death of George Floyd, there were a lot of communications/meetings to discuss what the firm would do in response.
