On working at FSG
“When I joined FSG, I was excited at the prospect of working with passionate, intelligent people on tough social challenges. I haven’t been disappointed! Hearing from a reader that one of our white papers “will be very useful for all foundations,” and hearing from clients that our work is “inspiring” and will make their own organization “stronger in the long-term,” gives me hope that we are achieving our mission to accelerate the pace of social progress by supporting our clients and the field in best achieving their goals. I enjoy collaborating with colleagues and clients—at the end of a project I often feel the same as I did when graduating from college or business school. You look forward to keeping in touch, but also know you’ll miss the level of interaction that working closely together creates.”
