Why Oliver Wyman?
I joined Oliver Wyman because its business values were compatible with my own personal values. Most importantly though I would say that I joined Oliver Wyman because of the people. Everyone with whom I spoke with was very engaged, encouraging, friendly and caring. To this day, after 3 years at Oliver Wyman I can still say that the people is the best part of Oliver Wyman. It is a community where you create bonds that encourage you when you are in doubt of yourself but also challenge to some healthy competition to build up one another.

However my team’s managements has definitely made the most impact in my career. My immediate managers have always taken the time and provided me with the resources to develop my career.
