EY Maternity Leave Comments
  • "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!" - Anonymous
  • "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." - Anonymous
  • "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." - Anonymous
  • "Good place for women. Fleible work arrangements and good paid maternity leave." - Anonymous
  • "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. " - Anonymous
