Week 15 – Team Training
We have been working closely with the Seniors who have been assigned to our teams to ensure they have a detailed understanding of the engagement and the audit file itself. As most of the Junior staff on our teams work in EisnerAmper’s New Jersey office, myself and Ruairi travel out to them regularly to review their work and guide them through new tasks to be completed.
Myself and Shaun returned to Ireland last week to sit our FAE Elective Interim Assessments. Although the majority of our time was spent studying it was nice to be home and see family and friends. Since we flew back to New York, the weather has improved greatly with temperatures over the weekend reaching 29 degrees celsius. We enjoyed a lunch in the sun at the Frying Pan Boat Bar overlooking the west side of the city, as pictured above.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 15 – Friends Visit
My fellow Secondee, Joey Halligan, and I continue to work on the component parts of our engagement. We will be back working on-site at the client’s headquarters in Massachusetts next week.
Last week, I had some college friends from Ireland visit me. They fit in many tourist attractions while I was at work and during the weekend we took full advantage of the very hot weather. We enjoyed the golf range in Chelsea Pier on Saturday and went to Central Park on Sunday to throw a football around.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 13 – Friends Farewell
As busy season came to an end recently, the audit team were assigned a number of new team members from the New York office. In addition, the team members from Mumbai flew home as their secondment term ended which meant the addition of new team members was very welcomed. We had a team meeting last week and were introduced to our new colleagues. We are currently working through our assignments to ensure the job is completed to the required standard.
Prior to our fellow secondee’s departure we went for a meal to toast our friendship and enjoy some of their native food, which was excellent! I will miss Chintal, Manisha, Ritika, and Santhosh among others as they brought a lot of joy to the secondment. I wish them all future success in the Mumbai office and beyond.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 13 – Catching up the the EAI team!
Last week we said goodbye to our Mumbai colleagues who have finished their secondment period. As the Mumbai staff have left and the EisnerAmper busy season is over, a number of new staff members have been assigned to the audit who we met last Friday. We are looking forward to working with the new team.
On Friday night, we met up with Cormac and Zoe from the Dublin office, who were in New York to meet with EisnerAmper LLP tax colleagues and clients. We had a great evening catching up and managed to grab a group photo at 230th and 5th with the Empire State building in the background.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
EisnerAmper Ireland hosts CPR training with the Irish Heart Foundation
On Thursday 9 May 2019, EisnerAmper Ireland hosted a CPR training session with the Irish Heart Foundation. We were delighted to be able to offer such important training to our staff members. Staff were given instructor and video led training in an hour long session and were able to practice their CPR skills on manikins provided.
Every year, 5,000 people in Ireland die from sudden cardiac arrest and by starting CPR on someone, their chance of survival can be doubled making CPR an essential life skill to have.

Week 12 – Sunday Brunch
Myself and Joseph are back in the New York Offices tidying up workpapers while we wait for the remaining information to be provided by the client. We have arranged to be back at the client headquarters in Westwood Massachusetts starting the week of 13 May. We are hoping that we will be able to complete the remaining 2017 testing within two weeks. We will shortly be starting the 2018 audit once the 2017 audit is close to being finalised.
Last weekend a colleague of ours from EAI visited us. We enjoyed another sunny Saturday in Central Park playing football. We made our way out to Queens on Sunday to enjoy brunch at the legendary Sugar Freak. In the evening we treated ourselves to Labretto’s stone baked pizzas before settling in for the night.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 12 – EAI Visitors
As Audit busy season comes to a close this week here in the US, we met with the additional staff who will be assigned to our teams. We will be training up these new team members on the engagement and familiarizing them with the audit file itself.
We had some visitors from EisnerAmper Ireland over the weekend. We had a great time showing them around the city which included a trip to the One World Trade Centre, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. We are also looking forward to meeting with Cormac Doyle, Gavin Lee and Zoe Maloney who will be in New York this week for meetings.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 11 – Lets go Yankees!
Shaun and I have been spending more time in the New York and New Jersey offices over the last couple of weeks as we are awaiting information from the client before we return to their offices to complete the remainder of our fieldwork. This has given us a chance to spend more time with the managers on the job to fine tune our audit workpapers and ensure the audit is progressing as smoothly as possible.
On Saturday, we went to the Yankees Stadium to see the New York Yankees play the Kansas City Royals after being kindly provided with tickets by Charly Weinstein, CEO of EisnerAmper LLP. We got to see plenty of home runs as the Yankees won 9-2 and we even managed to get ourselves on the Jumbotron.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 11 – Easter Weekend
Our team is working diligently and we are making our way through the audit step by step.
Easter weekend has been one of the most enjoyable I’ve experienced since my arrival in NYC 11 weeks ago. One of our former colleague’s from EisnerAmper Ireland, Aoife O’ Leary, her husband, and a friend of ours, visited NYC for the weekend. We enjoyed a brunch on Easter Sunday which gave us the opportunity to catch up. The weather was beautiful over the weekend and along with my colleagues Aidan, Joey, and a friend, we made it onto the big screen at Yankee Stadium (which you can see in Joey’s blog), all in all, it was the perfect weekend!Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 10 – Masters Sunday
Ruairi and I are still working full time in the client’s offices and will be for the foreseeable future. I’m progressing through my sections and have been assigned some additional areas of the audit. As audit busy season winds-down here in the US, we are hoping some additional staff will be assigned to our teams to help with the large amount of fieldwork that is to be completed.
Having worked on Saturday morning, Ruairi, Joey, Shaun and myself went to the batting cages at Chelsea Piers. We had a great day out and then on Sunday enjoyed watching the greatest golfer of all time win the Masters.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 10 – A Trip to Chelsea Pier
Myself and Joseph were back in New York this week, splitting our time between the New York office and the New Jersey office. We will be heading back to the client site in Westwood Massachusetts next week to continue our work.
Now that the baseball season is getting into full swing, Joey, Aidan, Ruairi and myself went to Chelsea Pier to practice our batting. We then met a colleague from the New York office and had a few drinks for her birthday.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
Week 9 – A Trip to Boston
Our client engagement has been really busy over the last couple of weeks. In this time period, we have moved from the planning stage of the engagement to fieldwork and I have been assigned members of staff to assist me. I’m delegating work to the more junior members of the team and providing assistance to them when required. I’m working from the client’s site which means there is interaction with the client on a daily basis.
Over the weekend, the secondment team paid a visit to Boston for some much needed R&R. The weather was beautiful over the weekend which added to the trip. We did a bus tour of the city which included a very knowledgeable tour guide who explained the history of the city, including the famous Boston Tea Party protest in 1773. Boston is a beautiful city and I definitely plan to return again!Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
