I have been working at Cartesian for a little over a year now. Cartesian is my first full-time job after I received my BS in Economics, and right from the start I was immersed in and contributing to fascinating projects with talented co-workers. This allowed me to witness firsthand the challenging yet rewarding work environment at Cartesian. In my first month, I worked with one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world and helped them refine and execute sales & marketing strategies through advanced analytics, picking up new data analysis skills along the way. Later on, I had the opportunity to strengthen and deepen my industry knowledge by working with a large information technology company to develop a go-to-market strategy for their cloud offering.
Of course it hasn’t been all work and no play – the size and the culture of Cartesian is incredibly collegial such that I see my coworkers more as friends than colleagues. The happy hours, company outings, and analyst-organized events have been crucial to maintaining a supportive and fun environment to work in. The managers and consultants have all been integral to my professional development at Cartesian since I joined, allowing me to develop a wide-range of skills in a short amount of time.
Cartesian ended up providing everything I was looking for in a consulting firm: the unparalleled opportunity to work with senior executives from the largest companies in the world, the challenging problems that keep me intellectually stimulated on a day-to-day basis, and the collegial, supportive, and collaborative environment that makes work something to look forward to.
