What’s the work culture like in EY Risk in the Sydney office? How is work life balance and what industries do you serve?

Late to the party, but I work within financial services so I can only speak from that perspective. The teams are historically quite small and have only recently experienced huge growth across the board. You’ll find a lot of teams are still quite tight knit from their “smaller” days and are actively trying to maintain that culture. Majority of people tend to juggle work life balance pretty well and are actually nice to mingle with.

Better late than never! Thank you!! I don’t work in a big office and I’m fully aware that moving from my office to Sydney might feel like going from a small pond to the Ocean. I just wanted to get sense of what I might potentially be getting myself into and this was helpful. I’m not opposed to occasional long nights, but what I find problematic is when there is a culture where having 0 work life balance all year is the norm and becomes the standard. There are teams and offices like that. I like my present team, because this isn’t the case and I would hate to give this up for the other.

Similarly, I moved from a small boutique sized consultancy and was wondering what the “big pond” will feel like. For the most part, Risk is a smaller EY practice (if you exclude actuaries). You won’t feel like you’re jumping into something wild and massive. Floors are small and each form their own mini community of sorts. Glad my 2 cents sorta helped!

Anyone like/dislike their Dyson V8/V10/V11 vacuum? Does it still get a lot of hair tangled in the brush like normal upright corded vacuums? Debating between that and a Shark self-cleaning brush one
