WE are moving to being a very heavily predominate female firm at the lower levels however the partner levels do not reflect this fact. If you are not able to work in a part-time arrangement the job can be very stressful and I not sure how many managers and senior managers handle the expectations of sales and workload of a full-time position along with family commitments. Many times "flexibility" for people in a full-time position means working all hours of the night just to be able to pic up their kids in the evening.

I worked at Ernst & Young for 3 years from 1999-2002 so some of this information may be outdated. As an Analyst within the financial advisory consulting subsidiary of the company, I had to travel 80% of the time across the country depending on where the client engagement took me. The quality of life was difficult due to the travel, and it was the only reason why I left the company. However, the benefits were above industry average, I had great access to senior managers and mentors, and the work was top of the line in terms of business experience and executive education. My career experience with EY was excellent preparation for developing the industry expertise that I wanted, which I was able to do for the next 10 years. I highly recommend EY to anyone seeking a career workplace that tries to accommodate women's career advancements and working arrangements despite the nature of management consulting work and all the challenges that can be associated with it.

As a younger staff, it is nearly impossible to have a work/life balance. The higher up in the company, the more flexibility you can achieve

I have been with this company for few years and I have seen so many women senior managers who have taken maternity leaves and have been completely supported by the firm. Most of our Advisory partners are women. This may not be the perfect place for work/life balance during busy season, but definitely offers great flexibility and good people to work with.

There are some very strong female role models in the firm. I would not say there is a glass ceiling at EY. The firm does provide a work/life balance most of the year, but like all accounting firms, there are busy seasons that affect the work life balance. There are benefits the firm offers to help women deal with child care and adult care issues during those challenging times. The benefits are great and the offices promote a healthy lifestyle.

I really like working here, but not sure how likely they are to promote people or move to a different area within the company.

Lots of flexibility (work from home, flex time, flexible work arrangements, great paid maternity leave with the ability to take additional time off unpaid). Best place for working moms!
