Why did you join William Blair?

During business school, I spent a considerable amount of time interacting with companies across the professional services landscape. I was quickly convinced that William Blair not only offered a great internship and post-M.B.A. job opportunity, but the chance to build a long-term career.

As a career switcher, I was looking for both an industry and an organization where I would be challenged, put in situations where I could collaborate with talented, driven teams, and surrounded by people who take pride in teaching and mentoring. William Blair lined up extremely well across all of these criteria and has continued to deliver on a day-to-day basis.

In addition to being a generally flat and highly collaborative organization, there seems to be a longer-term focus that permeates the culture. This impacts the way people treat each other internally and the way we view our relationships with clients.
