Ask any of our colleagues why they chose Oliver Wyman and the answer is the same: "It's the people." Other firms say it; at Oliver Wyman, we live it. Our culture is constantly shaped, refreshed, and reinvigorated by the people who work here.  At Oliver Wyman you have the chance to make an impact from the moment you join.  Everything we do is driven by our values.  The entrepreneurial nature of our firm facilitates exceptional opportunities and the ability to shape not only your future but the future of our clients and of Oliver Wyman.  With over 4,000 professionals based in more than 50 offices in 26 countries, we have the reach to meet our clients’ needs anywhere in the world.

A few things you should know pertaining to what makes Oliver Wyman unique amongst management consultancies:

  • Get there faster:  With an impressive list of global clients, there is no shortage of work to be done.  You’ll have more client interaction, more opportunities to work internationally, and more contact with Partners from “Day One” than at any other consultancy. With constant opportunities to choose from, you will build your expertise and cultivate your talents.  Our projects impact industries and you’ll impact our projects
  • No artificial barriers:  You’ll have the chance to make your mark from the moment you walk through our doors. Our people shape the future direction of our firm every day, and we treat everyone as a potential Partner.  Our non-hierarchical structure means that it is the quality of your thoughts and ideas that matter.  Strong performers are promoted quickly and compensated accordingly.  There are no time, tenure, or advanced degree requirements for promotion to Partner.  Your responsibilities and career path will progress as quickly as you demonstrate your capabilities
  • An exciting, stimulating and collaborative environment:  You’ll brainstorm with some of the best minds in the business world, benefit from the knowledge of industry experts, and develop high impact ideas that make a difference to your clients.  You’ll travel with smart, well-rounded people from a diversity of cultures and backgrounds.
  • Choice:  Uniquely, we have built our career model around choice.  Choose if you want global travel.  Choose to work a reduced year.  Choose a 6-month fellowship with one of our partner charities.  Choose how quickly you want to specialize and in what.  Choose to do an MBA (and we’ll support you) or choose a direct path to Partner.  (Oliver Wyman doesn’t employ an “up or out” development model.)  Choose to leave and come back again.  You can truly make your career at Oliver Wyman what you want it to be.
