After studying in another field, what attracted you to Lake Partners?
After studying mathematics as an undergraduate, I was looking to apply the critical thinking skills I had learned in a new environment. I wanted to continue building on what I had studied, yet move in a new direction. Lake Partners offered the chance for me to solve real-world problems in lieu of those arising from abstract principles. As I learn here, I continue to augment my underlying mathematics background with new tools to answer questions particular to strategy consulting, and this in turn grows my analytical capabilities. I was attracted to Lake because I saw this firm as a chance to apply what I knew, and to continue learning; it has indeed proved to offer just such options.

What makes Lake Partners different?
Lake Partners is based on integrity. This underlying foundation enables trust between analysts and managers. Our culture welcomes discussion and open communication, which drive both improved client results and enable ongoing personalized training for each analyst. At Lake, analysts can grow quickly. We have the opportunity to improve useful skills each day, from communication to project planning to analytical thinking. Lake's environment is built to support employees; I can trust each of my coworkers and managers to look out for me, and I them.


What do you enjoy most about the projects at Lake Partners?
Projects can feel like a whirlwind initially; you are thrown into a problem headfirst, and it is your job to solve it. Lake's projects challenge me to absorb information rapidly, draw correct conclusions from imperfect data, and pick up quickly on emerging patterns to discover an underlying answer. For all this, an analyst at Lake Partners is never alone. We work with our managers and coworkers every step of the way, checking in to understand assumptions and reasoning - helping to drive each other toward the answer. Our projects span industries, each offering the opportunity to learn about a new market, a new problem- from healthcare to tax policy. Even as a new analyst, I saw the effects of my work on client decisions across various industries. Few other places exist where a young person can see that level of impact.
