If You’re ‘Bored Stiff’ Working at a Law Firm, the Next Logical Step Might Be to Get a Job at EY

It's rare, I think, to encounter a person who finds a particular career path boring and abandons it for another path that is similarly boring. EY's Central Region Managing Partner for tax is one such person:

Marna Ricker “always had natural gravitation toward math and numbers.” After a short stint in a law firm, where, she said, “I was bored stiff,” she moved to Ernst and Young (EY) 25 years ago.

Although Ms. Ricker's experience seems to provide evidence of which is more boring, I stand by my assertion that the question of which profession is worse, accounting or law, is a futile debate.
