EY

Executive Director

January 1970

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.

Women's Workforce Federation

Executive Director, Operations

January 1970

This is a demanding, but very satisfying place to work. They are working hard to improve conditions for women that are working. The pay is not so good, but there are lots of perks, like travel opportunities, and lots of support for growth--education, professional development.

Morgan Stanley

Executive Director, Strategy & Business Development

January 1970

Please be careful. While there are some good people in certain groups where it is a healthy work environment, overall Morgan Stanley is toxic. I spent many years there and received good reviews and was one of only a few women promoted. So this is not bitterness, it is based on observation and experience. The place is toxic and abusive.

KPMG

Executive Director, Marketing

Highly dependent on the partner experience. I know some women that have been very well supported, but others are not. It is too variable to be consistently good.

    Maybe. Would depend on the role. This company is highly dependent on the partner in charge. Some partners are amazing. Very supportive and only care about good work. Others perpetuate the old boys club and are highly political.
