Working at EY holds special memories for many. Celebrating team wins, bonding during busy season, building trust and creating authentic relationships – they’re all part of what makes a career truly meaningful. Staying connected with the people who have been alongside you through the ups and downs enriches our lives and can lead to life-long friendships. This is a view expressed in the latest EY Global Alumni Survey which identified relationships, people and culture, and on-the-job learning as the three top benefits of the EY experience.
Leaving the EY organization doesn’t mean you have to cut ties. It is still possible to enjoy these experiences through the EY global community of over one million alumni, where opportunities abound to reconnect with old colleagues, renew relationships and forge new ones.
Kevin Halcomb, an EY alumnus who returned to the EY organization, says, “I stayed connected because of the friendships that I built at EY. We care about one another." For EY alumnus Cameron Fleming, the EY organization was a formative part of his life and a key reason he wants to be a part of the EY Alumni Network. It was his first full-time job out of college and the start of his career. He remembers “long hours, challenges, a lot of autonomy and a lot of fun”, but it was the “social camaraderie, working in teams and collaboration” which stood out for him. It is a sentiment echoed by many EY alumni who look forward to the in-person alumni get togethers where they can cement those special bonds.
