About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I really enjoyed the insight because it was clear that the firm really cared about our opinion and tried their best to accommodate for the sudden COVID-19 outbreak. The insight day was moved onto a virtual platform instead of the traditional physical experience in their London office. There were no delays to the dates and the agenda was well planned.

2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I felt very encouraged to ask questions and was even given the opportunity to prepare a list of questions to ask panelists before the event. A lot of questions ranging from the more social to technical questions were asked and well responded to. If due to time considerations, your question could not be answered straightaway, they have provided and encouraged us to email to get in touch.

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

The next steps were very clear and they were very nice about breaking the interview process for next year's summer internship down. Explaining the difference between each subservice line was also especially useful because on their website, it seemed like many of the focuses were intermingled or repeated between subservices.

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

The insight was very well structured and really encompassed all the aspects of an EY experience - social & technical, across different seniority levels, international staff with different journeys. Would be a good idea to pre-think some questions. I wished they emailed the agenda beforehand just so I could plan better while doing the insight in a different country with a large time difference.

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Everyone was quite enthusiastic for the most part. A lot of questions were being asked and the organizer was very accommodating. Generally people were much more engaged and interested in panel discussions over the softer sides of the firm activities like Women's network. Since it was a virtual event, the spring attendees weren't really interactive with each other however.

7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

The firm has fast tracked our summer internship application and we'll head straight into the the EY experience day which is akin to an assessment centre. They gave us the general breakdown of the structure of the experience day as well and gave us very general tips like to be ourselves during the interview.

8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

5/10

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

The panellist discussion gave a very candid view on the company culture and it was evident that they had a strong focus on flexible working and being friendly because they were repeated very often. Some insights into their Women events were brought up, probably in too much detail as it's probably on their website.

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Really enjoyed the section where they delved and differentiated between different subservice lines because it cleared up a lot of misconceptions. I wish more time was allocated to this particular section as we were told that EY doesn't encourage a switch in service line once committed so I felt that I would have been great to put even more emphasis on this agenda.

Other Information

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


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

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

5/10

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

Brief mention about pro bono consulting and volunteering through the EY Ripples project when someone asked a question about it. A lot was presented about regarding the EY Women's Network which is understandable considering it's a Women's spring insight. Otherwise it was generally up to the individual to ask specific questions regarding this.

8/10

15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

Yes, EY is a very well structured firm with a large network. They really know what they are doing and while you might not decide to work with them in the future, it's still insightful and an efficient way to break into the financial services world because they lay out information clearly for you.
