E&Y

#1

I finished second assessment day at 3.00 pm for Graduate Audit. However, I have not heard from them. Probably I failed the assessment. Anyone heard from E&Y yet ?

#2

Don’t lose all hope. Give it until the end of the week at least! How was the day? Any parts you felt went really well, or really badly?

#3

I really hate them. At the end of assessment day, one of the guys observing me during the day has a ‘review session’ with me. At the beginning, he told me that he would not mark it, or use it as a assessment tool. Just talked about the tasks I did during the day. Because he relaxed at the beginning, I was ‘off guard’. I was quite honest when reviewing and talking about my performance. On the way back home, I felt that I was quite casual though. I felt like they tried to CHEAT me. If they told me it would be a formal interview, then I structured better ‘diplomatic’ answers.

Anyway, better think about other opportunities.

Does anyone know how different in term of salary pepple at the same level but doing ACCA and ACA get?

#5

ACCA and ACA at the same level? Not sure how often you’d see that tbh.

#6

I mean ppl join the same year but one is doing ACCA and the other doing ACA

#7

People doing ACCA are on about £5000 p.a less than people doing ACA in the regional offices - I’m not sure about London though.
