I started my career with EY and have worked here for 7 years. Opportunities for promotion, advancement, international rotations, etc. are not limited by gender. It's truly an equal opportunity workplace. While a significant proportion of the partnership level is white male, in recent years there have been more female partners and executive directors being promoted across the organization. Overall, there is great support from leadership and it's a great organization to work for.

I've had two babies working at EY and between the 12 weeks paid maternity leave and the flexibility of being able to work from home when I needed to it was really a very supportive environment. That said I would recommend that if you are going into the practice to start here right out of college and get your career started before starting your family. The path I see most of the staff take is to make it to the Manager level prior to starting a family, as the travel can be extensive, and the hours are long prior to those years. The firm emphasizes work / life balance but make no mistake, there is a high level of expectation set.

Women at the most senior ranks are visible but few. People are promoted on talent and business development potential; sponsorship where its needed is slow to change but advancing further with each leader that takes enough time to care and invest in a women to invest in their future.

I've worked here for 12 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly and there is a strong initiative to promote women and diverse candidates. However, just like most organizations, the intentions, marketing and effort is there but there is still a lot of work to do.

EY is very supportive to new mothers. The office has private rooms for pumping milk and the flexibility to work from home is a bonus. However, this depends on which group you work for.

Depends on your personal situation and which group/position in the firm. Work load is very demanding and requires long hours. But one of the benefits is the ability to work some days at home.

If you are able to be utterly flexible and giving of your time this will be a good fit and you will feel valued. The moment you need to balance your work and life commitments more, you will feel less valued. If you truly enjoy the work this will be less of a challenge. Generally, if you work less over time hours as compared to a similarly rated peer this may be used as grounds for bumping down your overall rating and thus pay. The idea being that those putting in more hours are demonstrating more commitment to the firm vs. being less efficient than you are. Your experience can vary depending on who you work with and is often luck of the draw. There are a few people who can facilitate and mentor you through some of these hurdles, while others are too focused on their own personal goals and professional ambitions or simply lack such aptitude.

You need to be prepared to bust your butt at this firm. On the core business services side, it is very difficult to get promoted. Tenure and/or high performance within a current role is not an indicator of promotion - there has to be a open/new role or you need to be taking on new responsibilities.
