Our values define who we are. They are the fundamental beliefs of our global organization. They guide our actions and behavior. They influence the way we work with each other – and the way we serve our clients and engage with our communities.

Every day, each one of us makes choices and decisions that directly affect the way we experience each other and the way our clients and wider communities experience us. Our values give us confidence that we are using the same principles to help us make these decisions throughout our global organization.

Our global awards program, Better begins with you, enables our people to recognize and celebrate individuals and teams within our organization who consistently live our values and bring our purpose of building a better working world to life through their everyday behavior, which in turn makes an impact on our clients, people and communities.

This program is an important way in which we are building our shared culture, founded on our strong commitment to our values.

How would we describe the company culture?

Creating purpose? Disruption? Change? All of the above?

"Successful leaders know that ideas can emanate from anywhere. To be a disrupter, they must loosen the reins, and listen to voices from all quarters - including customers..."

We are already proud of our people culture, and we are committed to doing even more. Our people tell us that our culture of global teaming and our focus on building a better working world make EY a great place to build their careers. Our clients tell us that in recent years we have improved the effectiveness of our teams, our relationship building and our provision of high-caliber people.

Company culture

If you are business accountant or the like its nice

  • 19.Jun 2017
  • Employee

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay for unused vacation and other unused company time off.

What I like about the company

EY was a very good place to work. A large number of employee benefits are available such as legal assistance, elder and child care emergency assistance, and a good bonus plan.

What I dislike about the company

EY and the other Big Four accounting firms require a great deal of productivity such that you are penalized for taking time off as vacation time is factored into available time.

  • 02.May 2017
  • Employee

Suggestions for improvement

  • While you say you promote flexibility, there are some who imply the expectation of a more rigid work expectation that does not allow for work-life balance. Employees get the feeling that they must work all the time, even though this isn't directly spoken as an expectation, the workload does not allow for such a balance.

What I like about the company

The work is challenging and you do learn a lot. You are given ownership of your duties and are not micromanaged. Some groups are really great to work with and have a real cohesiveness about them. There is some flexibility in start times and you have the ability to work remotely on certain occasions that are approved by management. The firm is somewhat flexible when it comes to personal matters.
