Excellent team work demonstrted

Life begins at 8am or even earlier for some. You get into a file with a coffee. Depeding on your level, you have client meetings scheduled or a client =vist scheduled. You work, talk, share ideas and close the file at around 6 pm.

Pros

Healthy bites provided

Cons

Can be stressful for those who do not enjoy

Good Place to work

This company offered amazing opportunities to grow and develop. Through this company I also obtained valuable exposure to noted companies. Cons Not many cons that come to mind. As with any other company there is always room for improvement, but no cons that I would consider significant.

Good

Stressful and no work-life balance. Bad pay and management isn’t very supportive. Promotions and bonus are fair, other than that there are many managerial issues in the company.

diverse

EY is a multinational diverse company with so many different backgrounds, cultures and working styles. its a very challenging yet very interesting experience to expand your knowledge about different people in different service lines. EY is one of the toughest and top 4 companies around the world in Audit and i feel privileged being part of EY family. regardless of the long hours and tough submissions its always fun and interesting environment to be in

A good learning experience

Ernst & Young Dubai has molded me to become more professional and to be able to deal with different kinds of people from different walks of life. It is indeed a great company to start your career.

Best Company in terms of work culture. But no work life balance.

Best Company in terms of work culture. But no work-life balance. 1. The learning opportunities are more comparing to other companies. 2. No two days in EY is same

Would not recommend.

No work life balance. If you're goal is not to become partner and if this is not what you love doing and want to do for the rest of your life, do not get into this company because there is no time for anything else but work.

Productive en leerzaam

Ik heb met EY-Dubai gewerkt. De professionals van Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services stonden cliënten terzijde bij complexe gevallen van fraude, naleving van regels en zakelijke geschillen. we helpen opdrachtgevers om zaken op te lossen en strategieën te ontwikkelen. Een belangrijk onderdeel van je werkzaamheden: we helpen organisaties om risico’s effectiever te beheersen.

Pros

uitdaging

Cons

langwerken

n/a

The most enjoyable part is working on new projects, analyzing new industries. EY has very good workplace culture and management. Hardest part would be work/life balance.

Exellent

- Really comfortable working environment, team are so friendly. (General consensus amongst employees who have worked for different companies is that EY has the friendliest culture of the Big Four). - Even as an Intern, the Partners still have time to speak to you - Excellent training and support - Gain a good insight into different service areas - Possibility of a job offer - Well paid

Day in day out

-Depends on how often you check your emails over the weekend or are expecting something urgent to work on as soon as you get in. This typically can vary from individual to individual depending on grade and team they work with. -I have gained significant knowledge working at Ernst & Young ranging from Data analysis working on multiple dashboards for multiple clients both internally & externally; gained significant knowledge on Powerpoint, Word and Excel tools knowledge that I failed to learn outside of EY. -Time management is not really very effective at EY as you end up most of the time either working over the weekend or overtime due to poor time management by your superior or just a typical work dumped on your lap by end of the day expected to be completed early next day. -Hardest part of EY is that it is mainly a sink or swim job you have to learn fast and on your own rarely do you get any proper guidance with any new job or task given (you mainly rely on your networking skills to find out how it is done or get a grasp of it) -Most enjoyable part of my job at EY is that we are able to work remotely from client sites from home from different offices (we are not tied down to a certain office)

Pros

Remote work capability

Cons

Long hours, unpaid overtime, lack of work/life balance

not a good place to work

Not only did I move between organisations, I also made the move between continents, which was one of my toughest and in retrospect, my most rewarding personal decision. The prospect of a career that involved complex problem-solving while making strategic business recommendations and thriving on a variety of industries is as attractive now as it was then.

Pros

Diversed people

Cons

long hours of work
