Long hours, but if you communicate then you can work a flex schedule - often calling for late nights.

Family is touted as extremely important, but during busy season, this does go out the window... Working hours, due to project timing, are very long and much less flexible.

Women should avoid this place Six months into my pregnancy (with my first child) my company was acquired by EY. Initially I was super excited... however quickly became very saddened by the way the company treats new moms. When my offer letter was presented to me I was told that I would not be eligible for EYs maternity leave due to the fact although they had acquired a company that I had been employed at for five years, I hadn't been an EY employee yet for 12 months. Disapponiting but I could live with it. Over the next month I repeatedly asked HR about the FMLA qualification which is also based on 12 months of employment, Short Term disability eligibility or loss of, lost PTO etc. I basically wanted to know if I was getting 6 weeks unpaid or 3 months unpaid. I was told each time that I could not engage with EYs maternity team until the deal closed. Time was ticking on and the stress of not knowing during my pregnancy was just so saddening - I knew I had to leave the company for my own health let alone my baby's health. I quickly found a new job at a company that went out of their way to treat me like one of their own and while I disqualified from both FMLA and short term disability I knew I could never trust neither Society not EY. When I gave my two weeks notice I was told that I could buy vacation days. I worked on a team with 23 men and three women including myself... Not surprising that this was their response. HAHA, it's so absurd it makes me laugh. Fast forward three weeks after leaving the company, a dozen emails later and I am sitting pregnant and without health insurance. Neither company will give me access to Cobra that I've repeatedly asked for. Cobra told me I'm not in their system. I'm paying out of pocket for my ultrasounds and praying that nothing happens to me. Only one week to go until my new coverage kicks in. Unfortunately health insurance companies won't provide short term coverage to pregnant women. Every day I wake up thankful that I didn't end up in the ER the day before. Shame on them. My client found out what happened and pulled her contract too.

SEE ABOVE. Lack of communication around maternity leave is why I quit.

Be very careful about the area and Partner that you work with. The Partner structure is still the driver of the culture whatever the internal rhetoric is.

I found the area of EY that I worked in to be overly patriachal and hierarchical. My immediate manager was a male bully and was so difficult to work for it impacted my health. The HR team seemed to know all about this but as he was a Partner they seemed unwilling to act. I found a role in another area and they wanted to cut my compensation by 50% to match the existing men, even though I was far more qualified. I decided - in the end to resign - with a healthy pay out.

I would say you have to be your biggest cheerleader and drive your network of support.

In a variety of roles there are great opportunities for women, however a lot of networking is still based on old paradigms which make it challenging for women with families or skills outside of work.
