Alexia

Analyst, Boston

Why did you choose Analysis Group?
I chose to work here because of the positive experience I had during my internship. At AG, we believe that great ideas can come from anyone; I was thrilled to see how much value my team members gave to the work I did as an intern. Not only did an exhibit I created end up in our report, but the shell of that exhibit is still used at AG today.
What do you enjoy most about your work? What do you find most challenging?
I enjoy the fact that there isn’t a typical “Day of an Analyst.” Each day is different, and there are consistently new things to learn. The most challenging aspect of the job is the unpredictability of the workload, especially when cases slow down and I end up having more free time than I anticipated. At those times, I get involved in the firm’s learning and development trainings and recruiting opportunities.
What new skills have you learned since joining Analysis Group?
I have developed skills in communication, critical thinking, and attention to detail, and I began to think more about how each analysis fits into the bigger picture of a case. My SAS and Excel skills have also greatly improved.
What new experiences have you had at Analysis Group?
One aspect of our culture is development of self and others. Thanks to this focus, I’ve assisted with the training of new hires, led recruiting activities, and coordinated a pro bono project.
What do you think about Analysis Group’s collaborative culture? How does this benefit your work? Clients?
Working together results in an amalgamation of skills, talents, and mindsets with the goal of providing the best solution to a complex problem. It is fascinating to be in a room with people who have so many different ways of approaching the same problem. These interactions allow me to learn from more experienced colleagues.
How do you find a suitable work/life balance?
I try to keep a concrete line between my job and personal life. When I leave the office physically, I also leave any thoughts related to work inside the building. Once I’m outside the office, I focus on self-care and activities that replenish my energy, like working out, reading, and cooking.
