Testimonials

“I had the opportunity to start as an analyst with a great team and advance to roles as a manager, consultant, and then senior consultant. I learned skills from the ground up that I still use every day in my work at Moody’s Analytics.”

Nancy Michael, Senior Director of Product Strategy at Moody’s Analytics.

 

 

“My work as an analyst at CPG has provided me with the interpersonal and analytical abilities to launch a successful career in strategy and planning. Having a seat in the C-Suite during our engagements taught me what matters at the highest levels of a company and how to break down problems to deliver results and drive change at an organization. I continue to use these lessons today as I lead my own Strategic Planning & Analysis team.”

Nick Robin, Strategic Planning & Analytics at Box.
