EY business group and specialty: Advisory — Financial Services Office — Financial Services Risk Management
Time with EY: Two years
For me, the transition from business school was more or less seamless. The ups and downs I experienced during my MBA are similar to ones I experience as a consultant. EY has a high-performing, team-driven and collaborative environment where we are able to exchange ideas with, and learn from, one another, which also helps us make decisions amidst ambiguity. This is similar to the environment I experienced while in business school.
My favorite project was assisting a multinational bank design an end-to-end solution for liquidity risk management and reporting. I developed my consulting and technical skill set on this engagement. I worked with a senior manager to develop and recommend an approach and implementation plan to integrate capital markets data into corporate treasury analytics, while gaining in-depth product knowledge, along with strategic understanding of balance sheet management.
I enjoy tennis, spinning classes, swinging kettlebells and shopping for new and emerging designers.
Although there are other firms in financial consulting, EY is a definite leader, with excellent projects and clients in the industry. This leads to a challenging yet rewarding environment, with lots of learning and development opportunities as you progress in your career. This is coupled with a people culture where I get to work with, and learn from, peers with different backgrounds and skill sets.
