Make an Impact as an Associate Managing Consultant
As an Associate Managing Consultant, you will have the opportunity to lead key client engagements across a range of industries and types of projects, including consulting services, data-driven insights generation, and platform-based engagements (e.g., Test & Learn). Overseeing the day-to-day work of the project Delivery team, you will identify creative and useful analyses to address client problems, synthesize analyses into clear, sound recommendations, and create effective, impactful storylines and slides. Responsibilities within project management will include building strong relationships with mid-level client management and independently assessing client agenda, internal culture, and change readiness. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) engagements will require you and the Delivery team to build long-term client relationships, drive end-user adoption and competency, and provide analytical and technical subject matter expertise.
In leading the problem-solving process to drive high-value decisions, you will also have the opportunity to mentor junior teammates and contribute to the firm's intellectual capital and solution development.

You will receive coaching to enable you to take ownership of day-to-day project management across client engagements:
