I've worked here for five years in two different departments, and while culture is espoused similarly across the board, the way important initiatives are implemented is very supervisor-dependent. Lower-ranking employees are expected to network furiously and often "after hours" putting working parents at a disadvantage. Many women directors and partners who have successfully climbed the ladder and built their families expect that lower-ranking (read:less compensated) employees have the resources to be flexible. One director advised me to hire an au pair so that I could devote more time to work despite already averaging 10 hour days. Many women wind up on the proverbial mommy-track rather than advancing to partner or director as a result. Year after year there does seem to be more conversation around retention - particularly of high performing women - so there is hope if you're willing to fight (hard) for your work to be recognized. Benefits packages are good and the large size of the organization means you can transfer and seek new opportunities internally, too.

Very much depends on your direct supervisor, your department, and whether or not you are client serving (aka a revenue generator) or in core services. Definitely has a (white) boys club overall persona despite some great equality initiatives like paid parental leave. If you are a client serving high-performer, you will likely be able to find support and mentoring but if you are struggling to differentiate your road may stagnate. Women and minorities are promoted at a substantially slower rate than white male peers, unfortunately, even considering supply. Culturally you must buy-in (big).

Depending on your team and the people you work with, hours and whether WFH is frowned upon can vary wildly.

EY usually has the best intentions but I feel like it's a little all over the place. The technology is dated, the policies aren't always put into practice. Sometimes I feel babied and I don't feel like I have a strong career path here but at the same time, I'm pressured to work a lot. I do think the people are sweet and genuine but I also feel like my team has hurdles with trying to keep a team together while trying to appease management.

It all depends on the team, office location and position. There is constant pressure to improve a process before the process is even determined. Your hours and utilization are major pressure points. You need to remain chargeable but efficient but not too efficient or else you won't meet utilization. The pressure to maintain this balance is difficult. As a female I have no issues here but as a new mom, I don't think the company always practices what they preach. I think if you are at a senior manager level and up, it's much easier to take advantage of the policies. Any one below that, it's like you're not really welcome to the same family benefits without judgement or push back.

At EY, it's all about client serving. If you are in back office poisition, you may not be valued as much.
