EY Antti Sinkkonen

Antti Sinkkonen
Senior Consultant

I have worked in EY-Parthenon team since September 2019 and ever since my first week at EY I have had a chance to participate in numerous interesting projects and proposal processes. During my internship I have been treated as a full team member and given considerable responsibility over client deliverables and other project work which has resulted in steep learning curve as you might assume.

Typically, my work week consists of material preparations, analyzing client material and data and attending client meetings – however every week and workday is different, which is something I personally prefer. In addition, we collaborate a lot with other EY teams both domestically and internationally to find the best people and solutions for our clients.

Tax Advisor
Business Tax Services

EY Finland’s Business Tax Services (BTS) team focuses on advising businesses and wealthy individuals on domestic tax matters. To create the most complete team of tax professionals, BTS consists of both law and business school graduates. BTS has a deep knowledge of the different areas of business taxation and advises businesses in optimizing and enhancing the efficiency of their tax structures and transactions.

The traditional consulting projects emphasize deep knowledge of applicable tax matters and creative analysis for finding the optimal solution from a for instance tax cash flow perspective. On the other hand, in engagements where BTS advises on e.g. the rectification of taxes, argumentation skills are required, as well as an understanding of companies’ business strategies. The most important skill is, however, a thorough interest towards tax matters, both from a legal and business perspective.

Analyst Trainee

I have had the chance to work on restructuring projects and one project from a different sub-service line. Each project so far has been different, truly interesting and taught me a lot each step of the way. In the restructuring team you get to work on real-life business cases to save and help companies in distress.

Work assignments and the amount of work varies depending on the current project situation. When staffed on a project I work together with the project team to help deliver the project to the customer. I get to participate in client meetings, analyze financial data, conduct research on the client’s industry and business operations and prepare deliverables i.e. the report.

Every day within audit-services is different and you always learn something new. The size of the client’s organization dictates vastly what you get to do. When you work with smaller organizations you get to do the whole audit process, while as in larger organizations you get to go in depth in individual reviews, all the while receiving help from your colleague.

Although the stereotype of using a lot of Excel is true, auditing is first and foremost a customer service business, where you work a lot both in teams and independently. Hence, having good interpersonal skills and an attention to detail are both characteristics which will make your job easier.

Joanna Kyrölä
EY Business Consulting

I was positively surprised that I was staffed to my first project already on my second week as a trainee. After that, I have been part of several different project teams and my opinions have always been considered. Typically, my tasks include preparing client materials, researching and analyzing data, and participating meetings.  Additionally, it has been nice that I have been given responsibilities when preparing client materials. I have also been part of planning and executing our new trainee program.

As our team name Business Transformation implies, we work with projects that are related to e.g., strategic or sales transformations. We work beyond team lines and with people around the world. Therefore, the projects I participate in and support are different and there is always something new to learn. Currently I am happy to continue my career path at EY as a Consultant and help our new trainees to settle in.
