Why Oliver Wyman ?I joined as an intern because I liked the people I met during the interview process and the focus on Financial Services. I chose to stay full-time because Oliver Wyman emphasizes building talent from within.
Real work, real fastMy first year, I worked on a series of due-diligence projects examining failed banks. For the first project, I needed a lot of guidance from my manager. But it was a great set of projects, and I quickly learned a lot about retail banking and provided our client with analysis they didn’t have the capacity to complete otherwise .
Combining professional with personalI have participated as sports co-chair for the NY office, and was recently the soccer team captain. Our team represented Oliver Wyman well by winning our league and had a great time in the process. Outside of work, I enjoy running. I raced competitively in college, and now pretend I am still a runner. It’s a great way to explore other cities when you’re traveling! I appreciated the flexibility the firm demonstrated which allowed me to transfer to the Chicago office, where my fiancé lives (even through the majority of my work is in New York.)
