We’ve Got Big Plans for You


As an associate, you will experience management consulting in a uniquely collegial way. We work together to provide every colleague with full and ready access to the best of our firm.
Training is a crucial component of your introduction to the firm. A variety of training opportunities are available to enhance your consulting knowledge and allow you to explore new areas of interest. Trainings are led by our best and brightest consultants managers through partners.

No two client engagements are alike. As an associate, you will work with, rather than on, clients. We value collaboration highly. Typical responsibilities include gathering and analyzing data, conducting competitor assessment studies (benchmarking, best practices), generating proposals and leading client and analyst teams, and recommending and implementing co-created actions alongside the client. We will nurture your entrepreneurial spirit and are committed to providing you with hands-on experience that will have a positive impact on the rest of your career.

We take a tailored approach to performance management and career advancement, and so the scope of your consulting role will increase as rapidly as your individual performance warrants. You will benefit from our global scale and capability without compromising the speed and nimbleness afforded by your close-knit teams. Career progression trends suggest the following model: associate to manager within two to three years, manager to principal within three to four years, and principal to partner within three to five years.
