The FMCG Difference
FMCG offers a career, not just a two-year program.
Many consultancies are structured based on an "up or out" policy, forcing most of their analyst-level staff out of the firm after two years. At FMCG, we provide unlimited opportunities to grow in your career. In fact, 30% of our partners started out as analysts at the firm. Progress at FMCG is based on merit, so you can go as far as you want if you have the will and drive.
- Non-Traditional Organizational Structure Allows for Maximum Exposure
Our analysts are the core of our firm, not just peripheral support for MBAs. This means that straight out of college, you have the opportunity to work directly with the officers of the firm on project teams. Our typical ratio of professional-to-partner is 4-to-1, which is about half that of the typical top-rated consulting firms (they usually have 8-to-1, while others can have up to 20-to-1).
We use small, close-knit project teams primarily composed of analysts and senior managers. This structure provides a unique opportunity to learn hands-on from the experts - the officers of the firm and our clients who are usually industry leaders. Such upfront exposure allows for rapid and thorough understanding of strategic issues and quickly develops the skills and methods for formulating solutions
- Smaller Firm Means Larger Responsibilities
Unlike most other consultancies, from day one as an analyst, you will be tasked with challenging, substantial work that makes a real impact. We believe you learn best by doing so we put you right in the middle of the action from day one.
- Your Opinion Matters
From day one at the firm, you will be involved in discussions that question your thoughts on an issue or topic, given the analysis or research you have completed. Everyone at all levels is expected to make real contributions to the continuing innovation of ideas, taking a substantial role in keeping our thinking ahead of the curve. Our work uncovers new insights and delves into the most critical challenges facing our industry and our clients. We publish our industry insights in our white papers.
