Berkeley is somewhere you are respected and engaged with as an individual. Everyone has different wants and needs in life, and in other companies I’ve worked, I’ve sometimes felt like a commodity to be sold and measured. In Berkeley it feels different. It’s big enough to provide really interesting and challenging work for big and medium sized clients, but small enough that you get to know everyone’s face. There’s also plenty of opportunity to bring your family into the work culture. From Christmas parties for the kids, to dinners out with my wife and other Berkeley folk: it’s a very inclusive business. The culture and community is what makes it special to me.
It’s hard to pick one assignment as they all bring something new and exciting.
The list is long and varied, but ultimately consulting is a people business and I’ve been privileged to work with and for some exceptional clients and colleagues. That is what has made my experience at Berkeley special.
I believe in integrity and being very open and honest in my life, inside and outside of work. Integrity and having open conversations is very much encouraged at Berkeley. Whether about an assignment, your own career or the fabric and values of the firm, I’ve always felt that people’s opinions are valued and sought out. That comfort in being open and honest has encouraged me to stay at Berkeley for far longer than I have at previous consultancies.
