A day in the life of an associate
Associate Consultant | Digital Operations
I’ve always loved problem-solving, and at Maryville, there is always the opportunity to take on something new and different. Flexibility is key, as the technology space requires continuous learning. What impresses me most at Maryville, are that our results are not just tied to client projects, but from what we can accomplish working with a group of such talented, driven colleagues.
My favorite part of Maryville is the chance to make a definitive impact. The work is challenging, but the team provides a great support structure with true investment in each other’s success. I find my day is a combination of client work and internal initiatives and can see the outcome of that effort in real time. Being able to try new things and lead opportunity fosters a strong growth mindset culture. Outside of projects, I am leading segments of our recruiting efforts and onboarding planning, things I never expected to be a part of, but have found a passion for.
Outside of work, I enjoy my hometown roots and connections to St. Louis! Hockey and baseball are my favorite sports, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to find me playing catch with my friends in Forest Park over the weekend. At the start of the week, I always look forward to the next exciting challenge!
Associate Consultant | Technology Business Management
About 275 feet above Clayton, MO a TBM consultant for Maryville Consulting Group (MCG) begins their day with a preparatory meeting. They either meet with teammates or clients to set up the day ahead. The start of the day highlights a main attribute of an MCG consultant: collaboration. There is no day without teammate cooperation and no project where one succeeds alone. Fittingly, each and every Maryville consultant is intelligent and dependable making both the working environment and project quality superb. Highlight number two: client interactions. A TBM consultant is constantly engaging with their clients as feedback and conversation are a must for any successful consulting project.
Every day presents new challenges, new problems to solve. Throughout the day, a consultant will tackle many issues; there will certainly be problems they don’t have the answer to. Here is the third highlight: consultants will be challenged, and they will have the power, training, and resources to overcome their challenges. There will hardly be a day where an MCG consultant is not inventing a solution, and from that invention comes the furnace to forge a new pathway. There is no one method or tool to solve a problem. MCG consultants must have the flexibility to adapt and thrive.
Highlight four: camaraderie. Maryville consultants depend on each other and so grow close. It wouldn’t be unusual for the day to end with kickball in the park.
