- Why did you choose Analysis Group?
- I chose AG for the collaborative culture I experienced as an intern. Being on case teams where everyone relies on each other and supports each other means never tackling complicated problems alone.
- How does life at Analysis Group compare to grad school?
- Instead of working by myself and receiving occasional feedback, I’m in constant contact with my case team members. That lets me ask for help when I need it, and makes me more productive.
- What new experiences have you had since joining Analysis Group?
- I’ve learned the ins and outs of so many different industries. It’s always surprising to see how an abstract principle from an economics textbook shows up in a real-world industry, and then to realize that that principle is actually central to our case.
- What do you think of the case team dynamic?
- Everyone on a case team has the same goal, and we all share credit for good work. This encourages us to listen to each other and trust each other – and it also makes the work more fun and higher quality. Getting up to speed on the relevant context for a new case can be challenging, but we’re all helping each other to support the experts.
- What is it like to work in your office? What is the culture there?
- Boston is AG’s largest office, but it doesn’t feel too large. Everyone is approachable and friendly. The parties and events, comfortable offices, and copious snacks are pretty nice too.
- How do you find a suitable work/life balance?
- I have a baby, so she forces me to maintain work/life balance. If I don’t get home in time for dinner, then I barely get to see her that day. So, even when work is busy, I try to get home for dinner. If necessary, I can finish up my work remotely after she goes to sleep.
