I've been here for 5 years. It's def seen as second class by other firms but I've found it to be a good place for high performers to shine and move up quickly.

Second class? Good thing I don't care much about elitism. So overall you recommend the firm? What type of projects do you work on?

Yeah of course I recommend it! It's a good place to learn and I've not met anyone here who is elitist so you might enjoy it as well. Right now I'm working on Healthcare projects but I started in Fed. Main focus is in tech implementations.

How's the culture there? Welcoming and collaborative? Sorry for all the questions

No worries! I've found the culture to be very welcoming. I haven't seen much backstabbing or sabotaging other coworkers to get ahead. I think the reason is that we don't have an up or out policy. You can certainly move up quickly if you want to and have the network to support you. But on the flip side, if you're comfortable at your level and continue to do well, you can stay there almost indefinitely.

Wondering what advice you may have for managing a male leader who is older than me and seems very focused on hierarchy (for example offers up that I’m his “boss” in intros on a conference call). Other than being very clear about my expectations for how we work together and the value I think can come from what I bring to the mix that’s different/complementary to what he’s bringing — how can I get him less preoccupied with the ranks and more focused on moving forward?
