Why I Joined Pace Harmon

"I joined Pace Harmon because I was looking for a consulting firm that would expedite my career development. I was seeking the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on high-stakes client work while avoiding a “spreadsheet monkey” role with no client interaction responsibilities. It was difficult to pass up the opportunity to assume significant responsibilities and work with a prestigious client base.”

What I Like About Pace Harmon

“I really appreciate the relatively smaller size of Pace Harmon. The smaller size of the firm not only permits analysts to get to know everyone at the firm, but also encourages analysts to shoulder significant responsibility in both client work and practice operations. For example, it is an expectation that analysts are ready and willing to interact and present to senior client representatives beginning with their first project at Pace."

The Kind of Work I Do

"The type of work I do is variable and project-dependent. Thus far, I have completed client deliverables (e.g., PowerPoint decks), created financial models, facilitated workshops, conducted interviews, presented to clients, managed client personnel within a project management capacity, performed qualitative and quantitative analysis, and much more. All my projects have been IT-related thus far, but I have worked for clients in the Healthcare Insurance, Publishing, and Retail industries."
