Hear from our people in EY ifb

People treat each other with appreciation and respect, regardless of career level. This team spirit is one of the main reasons I so enjoy working for EY ifb.

Like most natural scientists, I was faced with the choice of pursuing the conventional path of doctoral studies or entering the job market. IT consulting aroused my curiosity because I had really enjoyed bioinformatics and programming in college, but I was a little worried that consulting might not fit my personality. However, I felt comfortable with EY ifb right from the start.

My first months were very exciting. Most of the 15 new trainees were also recent college graduates and we really bonded. After that first round of training, I was lucky enough to spend three months in the development team of our partner SAP, which really prepared me for my first project at a bank.

My colleagues were very supportive from the start, taking time to explain things from the ground up. People treat each other with appreciation and respect, regardless of their career level. This team spirit is one of the main reasons I so enjoy working for EY ifb.

I’m currently helping a client with business analysis for Abacus A360, a reporting software tool. The main focus is on error analysis; whenever data is incorrectly calculated or transferred, I search for causes and possible solutions working with other business analysts and sometimes colleagues from development and the specific business unit.

I’ve always enjoyed thinking through different strategies and breaking down a problem. The thinking isn’t all that different from how it is in a laboratory, where something can go wrong in an experiment and solutions have to be found.

My basic knowledge of programming from college was helpful, but determination and being able to solve problems independently has proved more important.

In my work with EY ifb, I really value my co-workers and the opportunity to continually take on new tasks and subject areas. My colleagues are extremely good at what they do, they provide constant support and are always open to questions. This team spirit was especially helpful in the beginning. When I joined EY ifb, I really wasn't familiar with EY ifb's specializations. The in-house training phase provides you with an overview, but you learn most through working with clients. Sometimes you simply have to jump in at the deep end, for example when you take on your first client project and have to prove yourself.

My basic knowledge of programming from college was helpful, but determination and being able to solve problems independently has proved more important. My specialization is data integration and modelling; I take care of the design and implementation of extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) processes and data warehouses, mostly using SAP means and the ABAP programming language. Thanks to my training as a physicist, I've become a real techie and networking pro at EY ifb. Many industries, including consulting, have the reputation of being male-dominated, but I’ve never felt disadvantaged as a woman at EY ifb.

One of the most interesting experiences in my time with EY ifb group was spending 18 months on a project in Canada. It was extremely exciting to work in a different environment, getting to know new people and a new culture.

I have the freedom to bring my values to the table, while also developing and living my vision of how co-workers and leaders can interact.

At EY ifb less emphasis is placed on counting working hours and more on results. It’s a way of working that I knew and liked from my studies and was happy to continue. It may sound clichéd, but achieving something as a team is our top priority.

Over the past 18 years, I’ve taken on many different areas of responsibility and have become a senior team leader. I quickly realized that EY ifb a place you can feel comfortable and thrive. I have the freedom to bring my values to the table, while also developing and living my vision of how co-workers and leaders can interact. I have the opportunity to help shape and support entire career paths. I see myself not just as a boss, but also as a motivator, consultant and helmsman for new markets and opportunities. In addition to team management, I’m currently promoting topics that have interested me right from the start, such as business warehousing, developments in the field of artificial intelligence or in-memory.

Esther Pfuhl

Work-life balance is important to me. I can work flexibly, so that I still have the capacity to pursue my interests outside of work and spend quality time with my family. Technology means I can stay in constant contact with everyone close to me when I’m traveling. At the same time, changing project locations also means I can take part in sports and cultural activities that enrich my life and provide experiences I can share with my family and friends back home.
