Fantastic maternity leave benefits. Some flexibility in terms of leaving early to pick up your kids and work from home when they go to bed. The hours are insane so it makes family time hard.

    Your teams aren't all in the same office. If I'm 50% on a virtual team why can't I be in the office 50% of the time instead of 100%?

EY is great place to work if you have the right mentor/group, however the converse of that is that if you are new.. it takes everyone a long time to trust you and look out for you. The policies are very fair including equal maternity/paternity breaks and apparently pay equality, however there still seems to be certain groups with a boys club mentality. Any not enough women are in leadership roles. Hopefully with the new leadership elects this is going to be a change that will reflect all over!

    The more senior you get at EY the more flexibility you have during the day, although that also means you may be taking calls later in the night.

Although it's not perfect, EY works hard to make the experience female and family friendly. As a senior female, I feel valued and an important part of the team.

EY is getting better at flexibility and includes paid family lead for both mothers and fathers, which allows women to get back to their careers quickly while fathers can stay home for a few months.

Great maternity leave policy but I believe I was negatively impacted by going on maternity leave.

Great learning and exposure. Competitive work environment. Limited flexibility for work-life balance

Make sure to negotiate a high salary when you start. Once you're in it's very hard to get raises even with promotions. Based on my limited knowledge of what my colleagues make, EY pays women much less than men with the same experience.

In the consulting practices, women who are not outgoing can be perceived as incompetent rather than being valued by skill and delivery, so the political game can be much more intense in these cases.

EY really tries to be a great employer for woman. However, if you sign up for audit or tax you will not have work life balance for busy season. It's not possible to do that while serving clients. They'll be flexible for sure but you will work a ton!

    They try to be as flexible as they can and as pro women as they can. The biggest hindrance is hours required per week. No matter what they do they can't get rid of client demands and the fact that they exist to serve client needs and bill hours!

Be careful at what level you come in at. Men are brought in usually at higher levels than women with the same experience.
