Why I Joined Pace Harmon

"I joined Pace Harmon for the opportunity to significantly grow my consulting skillset. Given the smaller size of the firm and typically smaller project teams, I have had increased responsibility and exposure to experiences beyond that of the typical entry level analyst. At Pace Harmon I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with not only senior management at the firm, but also senior management at my different clients. These experiences have allowed me to learn to quickly adapt to client environments and rapidly develop my consulting skills.”

What I Like About Pace Harmon

“The firm size also allows for a collaborative and supportive work environment. I have close relationships with practitioners of all levels in the firms and their support has helped me as I develop my career. Everyone at the firm is experienced and intelligent, and is eager to mentor and support coworkers."

The Kind of Work I Do

"While work varies by project, I am typically responsible for financial analyses, project management tools, and supporting the development of project deliverables and presentations. Working frequently on a small team, I am often given the opportunity to own discrete portions of a project and work directly with clients to resolve issues and prepare strategic recommendations. During one of my recent projects, I was responsible for building a comprehensive business case, gaining inputs for key clients and team members, and subsequently, as the project progressed, working with the client to revise financial projections based on improved assumptions and additional information. Internally, I support campus recruiting efforts, coordinate the new analyst mentoring program, participate in the Women’s Initiative Network, and help organize office community service and team building events."
