EY Employee Shot in Las Vegas Has Made Huge Strides in Her Recovery

We’ll leave you with some good news as we head into the weekend. Tina Frost, the EY employee who was shot in the head during the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, 2017, is now able to talk and drive, family and friends recently told the Baltimore Sun.

“She’s really a miracle,” said Amy Klinger, a family friend. While only a small percentage of people shot in the head survive, much less thrive, Tina Frost “is a fully functioning, speaking, thinking person,” Klinger said.

The San Diego resident is undergoing more surgeries at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore this month, but those surgeries are “purely cosmetic,” Klinger said. Following the shooting, doctors removed Frost’s right eye and took a section of her skull to remove bullet fragments and allow her brain to heal, according to the article.

An update on her GoFundMe page reports that Frost will have two follow-up appointments, as well as another neurological test, during the Thanksgiving holiday, but she will head back home to San Diego at the end of November.

Frost has not yet been able to return to work.

The GoFundMe page has raised $616,739 from 10,354 donors as of Nov. 16, which will go toward Frost’s medical expenses and recovery. The fundraising goal was $50,000.

Klinger told the Baltimore Sun that much of the money was donated by Frost’s co-workers at EY following the shooting.

That’s awesome.

Layoff Watch ’10: Ernst & Young January Edition

Confused doesn’t even begin to describe what were feeling. We are hearing tons of rumors about layoffs in the Ernstiverse this week.

We’ve heard rumors from Denver to the East-Central (fka North-Central) and New York FSO. This includes both client serving professionals and support staff. We have already confirmed that two admins were let go earlier this week in New York.

The timing is especially strange since, you know, it’s January and in some offices the mandatory hours have already rolled out. Even if it were only support staff being let go, the timing is still unheard of. Why wait until January to let people go when having cuts in November? Maybe it’s just us but if we had survived that November cut, we would have thought that our job would be safe until at least the spring.
And since the roundtables seem to be SOP you wouldn’t think they would be anything to worry about but they definitely have people talking and wondering what will go down.

So far, Ernst & Young has not responded to our request for comment.
If you hear anything about your office get in touch in with us and discuss in the comments.

E&Y’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award Just Got a Little More Prestigious

Jim Turley3.jpgFrom what we can tell, the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award is a BFD. If the other Big 4 have their own versions of this award, we sure haven’t heard of them.
And even if Deloitte were to start handing out the Uncle Dangle Vigilante of the Year award, it would pale in comparison to the EYEY because, now, a past winner is going to be on The Real Housewives of New York City.
Jennifer Gilbert won her EYEY in 1998 for her business, Save the Date, “A dedicated force of event planners who are in tune with the constantly evolving world of corporate events.” She’s even in the EYEY Hall of Fame. Jesus, this thing has a HoF?
J Dawg has to be bursting over this. Shamelessly up on his desk fist pumping, Tiger Woods style. A soon-to-be reality TV star that, God willing, will name drop E&Y every chance she gets on cable would be the best thing that ever happened to the firm. Sorry, NASCAR HoF.
