Manager, Menlo Park

Why did you choose Analysis Group?
After graduating from college, I wanted to start my career in a corporate environment, but I also didn’t want to put my econ textbooks in a box. Analysis Group gave me the opportunity to assist Fortune 500 companies and to re-read the chapter about monopoly power at the same time.
What do you enjoy most about your work? What do you find most challenging?
I really enjoy the variety of case work. Analysis Group doesn’t force you to focus on a specific practice area or industry, so I’ve had the opportunity to work on a wide range of problems in different sectors. These matters have involved insurance, securities and financial products, intellectual property, and business disputes. With each case, you’re able to learn a ton of new information and quickly become an expert in a niche topic. It can be challenging to keep up with all the moving pieces, but at the end of the day, I find the work very rewarding and intellectually stimulating.
How do you build a career at Analysis Group?
You have a lot of control on the direction of your career path at Analysis Group. Be entrepreneurial, build good relationships, and add value to the company with your human capital. Since there are so many moving pieces, prioritizing tasks efficiently and maintaining a close attention to detail are some of the most important skills you need to succeed.
What advice would you give to new staff joining Analysis Group?
Analysis Group is hugely collaborative, that’s an important skill here. So, ask a lot of questions. And don’t be afraid to speak up whenever you have an idea or think that something doesn’t make sense. Asking questions helps you to understand the problem, think about the problem, and make sure that you are on the same page with your teammates.
What do you do when you’re not working?
I really like to play team sports in my free time. Luckily, several of my Analysis Group colleagues have similar interests, and we have our Analysis Group soccer and basketball teams. We join corporate leagues or play in a nearby field in the mornings before work. So, even my life outside of Analysis Group sometimes involves my Analysis Group colleagues.
