Why I joined

After finishing my Master’s in Accounting & Finance I was looking for an inspiring job: one where I would be challenged and where I would have meaningful contributions. Thanks to its specialization in growth strategies, Estin & Co was offering me a unique chance to work on strategic questions for key decision makers of large and mid-sized corporations in Europe, North America and Asia.

Life at the firm

When I started, Estin & Co’s new joiner training program helped me get acquainted with the company, my colleagues and the tools which I would use in my daily work. After completing the training, I was instantly staffed on my first project. Throughout the first weeks and months in the firm, it was helpful to have senior colleagues give me some guidance, allowing me to learn on the job even faster. Very quickly I have been trusted with increasing responsibilities and working in such a rewarding environment has been extremely motivating for me. Besides our daily job, regular training sessions and social events across our offices help us getting to know each other on a personal level and strengthening our team spirit.

The daily job

My daily job as a senior consultant at Estin & Co is multifaceted. On the one hand, it includes a variety of quantitative and qualitative analyses supplemented by critical judgment. On the other hand, it involves regular client interactions, leveraging the client’s knowledge and experience to critically challenge our results and recommendations. This highly iterative process enables us to answer our client’s strategic questions in the end. What I particularly like about the daily work at Estin & Co is that thanks to its boutique character I have been given the chance to interact directly with senior partners, take responsibility and ownership of own modules quickly and participate in client meetings from day one.
