On working at FSG

“FSG gives me immense learning opportunities from the best and experienced consultants around. Being in a program (PIPE), it is fascinating to experience systems change and impact first hand and be able to be a part of its journey in some way. The thing I love the most about the culture here is that everyone is open to and encourages new ideas while also providing constructive feedback to make it better. It has been a great learning experience so far for me and I am thankful to each one for it!”
