What You Will Do

As a member of the Retail and Consumer Products team you will play an important role on the project team by supporting the day to day activities. Through this role you will conduct complex problem-solving and research to drive critical insights, create analytical tools to support key decision-making, and produce presentation materials for clients in order to impact strategy and maximize value. This is both a “hands-on” and analytical role, requiring travel to work onsite side by side with our clients, wherever it may be.

What We Offer You

Our industry focus means you will gain a deeper comprehension of how retail and consumer products companies work, how they make money, where they lose it, and how to balance profits against consumer expectations and competitive intensity. The makeup of our engagement teams offers direct partnership with senior management, exposure to executive-level stakeholders, and direct visibility into the decision-making process. You will have the opportunity to experience and work on a wide range of projects early in your career.

The Retail and Consumer Products team is based within the Corporate Finance practice and has teams in New York City and Chicago.
