Our 30+ boutique consulting firm clients tackle challenges too hairy and complex for end clients to address internally. Projects are varied, meaningful, and mission-critical.
Deep Client Relationships
Our consulting firm clients tend to have relationships with senior leadership, often including the C-Suite. Given those firms are trusted advisors to their clients, they seek consulting talent with C-Suite credibility.
Some boutique consulting firms compete against the biggest shops through a niche vertical or functional focus. For consultants that are or are looking to become subject matter experts, boutique firms can provide that opportunity to specialize.
Why Work for This Consulting Firm?
Why Work for This Client?
Career Growth Potential
In its roots, this featured consulting firm would take equity positions in start-ups. While the firm has evolved to work primarily with Fortune 500 clients, an entrepreneurial approach inspires both their approach and the capability-building project work they undertake.
Career Growth Potential
This firm is currently selling more project work than it can deliver on. This fast-growing team provides opportunities for career growth, not just because the firm thinks it's the right thing to do (and it does), but also because it simply needs its consultants to step up to lead and manage teams.
Our client helps its clients define and implement strategies for global travel and expense systems. They deal with currency issues, compliance challenges, and technical challenges with stakeholders in nearly every region of the world. Because you'll be leading virtual, global teams, much of the work can be done from your home office.
Travel and Expense Practice
Global T&E Implementation
After many acquisitions, a Fortune 500 company had a haphazard travel and expense structure, with each country and each subsidiary running its own system. In order to benefit from economies of scale and report spend globally on an apples-to-apples basis, the organization worked with our consulting firm client to harmonize travel expense systems across geographies and subsidiaries.
Health Care Law Compliance
New health care laws require transparancy between pharmaceutical manufacturers and health care providers. To comply with this complex web of federal regulatory requirements, a pharmaceutical company engaged our client to implement a global travel and expense system that allows the firm to report on key financial metrics to stay on regulators' good side.
Increase T&E Adoption
Even after an artful T&E systems implementation, user adoption still can be a challenge. Our consulting firm client is often retained to manage the change management process, ensuring that conditions are in place to nudge the users towards adoption. When implemented effectively, both the users and the organization win.
The Associate Consultant role plays the leading day-to-day role in global travel and expense software implementations.
