EY leadership has no boundaries. My husband is working in a project where they are in critical phase of testing and delivery of the system. His leadership calls him at 6am in the morning for status updates when they know for sure that he was up till 2/3 am working. I am asking him to put foot down but it seems he is the only one with the required knowledge. Venting ends. Thanks for hearing me out.

Question! My client wants me to pull together an analysis on a competitor. I am thinking I might book a call with the competitors sales team and pose as a consultant working with a confidential client who wants their product in order to get more insights about how they operate.

Hi guys, I am due to start working at EY soon within audit. I will be commuting to the office by train when in the Birmingham office. This will be from Leicester. Usually if a commute is about 1.5 hours+, Mazars authorises hotels. Is there a similar policy at EY? When not in the office I would prefer to drive to clients, not sure if me being in Leicester affects whether they will tell me to suck up an extended commute? Would a mileage claim be from the office to the client? Thanks!

Started about a month ago as a Risk and Advisory Cybersecurity Consultant, I am not liking my project i was told it would be technical so I took the offer. Now that I have been working on the project, it’s not technical and I want to leave this project but I don’t think it would be that easy. My second option now is that I have an offer from PwC to join the VM team as a Vulnerability Management Associate less pay because I don’t have the “tech” experience. I just want technical work. What to do?
