All members of staff were able to give details about their role both when they started and now which was helpful. I was able to get more information as to how a graduate programme is run and what kinds of activities i would be involved with if i was successful.

9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

So much information was given about the company's culture and work life. I found it so interesting to learn about the different activities employees can get involved with and learn more about. This is something I look for in a company and am therefore impressed that EY is very focused on culture and diversity.

Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

This was not needed as the event was held virtually.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

I was able to ask questions to the members of staff running the event, but seeing as it was held online via Microsoft teams, it made it a bit more difficult to have a full conversation with people.

5/10

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

Similar to the networking answer i gave, there wasn't really an opportunity to do this seeing as the even was online. However, after this event i have now seen that all EY members I have had the chance to interact with, they are all so friendly and approachable.

5/10

14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

When members of staff were introducing themselves they all gave information about their hobbies and interests outside of work which was interesting to find out and learn.

Yes! The event was so fun and enjoyable. I would highly recommend it!
