Life outside the firm
Why I joined
When I graduated from the Oxford University, I decided to have a first work experience in consulting where I could learn quickly and develop the professional skills required in business and management. I chose Estin & Co because:
- It is focused on pure strategy, which would enable me to gain a deep understanding of business logics across various industries; it would also give me the opportunity to work with the top management of our clients.
- I would be able to work in an international environment: the companies we work for and the problem we help them solve are multinational and the case team is consisted of colleagues from all our five offices across the globe.
Life at the firm
Estin & Co is a boutique consultancy, which makes the relationships between colleagues very close. I enjoy the friendly and collaborative atmosphere in the Shanghai office as our team is really helpful, motivated and inspiring. My career advisor is always open to questions about the case or anything else. On cases, we always have the opportunity to discuss with the managers and VPs directly within a small team. Though the daily work is challenging, we maintain a balance by having lunches together as well as drinks after work.
The daily job
As a consultant, I can be faced with all kinds of research and analyses: expert interviews, desk research, financial modeling, etc. I interact with clients based on those analyses. As we have a growing office in China, I also spent some of time in recruiting for Shanghai office.
