Analysts must be able to work diligently, both independently and as part of teams. They should be enthusiastic about learning from, working hard in, and taking advantage of the professional opportunities afforded to them. Individuals who excel in the Analyst role are given increasing client-related responsibilities over time and are considered for promotion to Consultant within two to three years.

There are three key categories of Analyst responsibilities

  • Project managing with input from the senior members of the team
  • Creating and maintaining project plans
  • Note taking and task management
  • Tracking and following up on action items to ensure completion
