Senior Analyst, Denver
- Why did you choose AG?
- I was interested in consulting, generally, because I liked the variety it offered. In college, I studied so many things simultaneously, and I was worried that a full-time position where I was doing the same thing day in and day out would be tiresome. I was intrigued by AG’s diverse practice areas, which I thought would provide me with exposure to numerous industries, and I also found the intersection of law and economics quite fascinating. Once I started talking to people at AG, I loved how intelligent and intellectually curious they were. I felt that if I came here, I would learn from my coworkers and continue to grow individually and professionally.
- What do you enjoy most about your work? What do you find most challenging?
- I enjoy the problem solving I do here. As an analyst, your job is to synthesize a lot of information, regardless of whether that information is quantitative (large datasets) or qualitative (court filings and/or articles), and to create a compelling story for the client. But telling a compelling story involves not just synthesizing the information you have reviewed, but also navigating the demands of the client, the expert (if it’s a litigation-based case), and your manager(s) at AG. Achieving this requires a lot of problem solving. It isn’t easy, but it can be quite rewarding.
- What is it like to work in your office?
- In Denver we are more casual, and as with all Analysis Group offices, we put a premium on the open-door policy. You often see coworkers talking to each other, not just about their cases, but also about life more generally. And at lunch, there are almost always people gathered around the New York Times crossword.
- What do you think about AG’s collaborative culture?
- Everyone is expected to contribute, even if you are a brand new analyst. You will immediately be tasked with important work, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have support. I have found the analyst support system to be quite strong in the Denver office. The other analysts are some of your greatest resources, and we genuinely want to help one another even if we aren’t on the same case team.
