What does career growth look like on your team?

From our interns up through our managing partners, we believe everyone has the opportunity to learn from each other. We run flat where our directors and partners are the front-line working with our team to ensure they are heard and have a clear growth plan in place. Yes, the door is always open.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned the importance of teamwork and communication. At PE, all projects are team-based with a lot of things in motion during each step of the process: from the sales team to the delivery teams to the finance and leadership teams. Having that camaraderie and communication makes a smooth process that works internally as well as for clients.
