Q: Why did you choose to join Ernst & Young?

A: I had received an offer from another professional services firm, but I wanted to see what Ernst & Young had to offer. I met with three people from the Transfer Pricing tax practice in Dallas and then flew to meet with the rest of the team in Houston, about 20 people. When I learned that everyone got the chance to vote on the decision to hire me, I was impressed. To me, that was evidence that everyone's opinion counted and everyone's contribution was valued.

Q: What sorts of opportunities were you seeking?

A: The variety of work experiences available at a smaller firm was limited. I therefore decided to seek more diverse transfer pricing assignments. At the senior level at Ernst & Young, I am able to take ownership of various project phases, not simply smaller aspects. For me, the opportunity to work with all stages of transfer pricing studies and be able to experience a variety of transfer pricing engagements was important, and that is what I have found at Ernst & Young.

Q: How do you feel you have had an opportunity to make a difference?

A: Our success at Ernst & Young hinges on successfully managing relationships with clients and colleagues. We are constantly encouraged to take ownership of projects-interacting with clients and keeping them updated. Clients have been able to come to me directly when they needed something. I have been told that I am very approachable and that translates into working well with people. As a peer adviser I have been able to tap into this skill with the new hires within our group-showing them the ropes and making sure they feel welcome.
