About the Position
Analysts’ efforts are a major component of every project we do, so you will learn and contribute to every project we do. New analysts work with the more senior members of the consulting staff in project teams to address key strategic issues for clients. In fact, our organization is relatively flat, and the senior leadership is accessible and directly involved in the projects. As their skills develop, analysts earn increasing responsibility and autonomy, progress toward greater client interaction, and presentation delivery.
