Uppers

“Excellent opportunities for entry-level analysts & interns.”

“The experience I have this early in my career, the bonus compensation, the mentorship.”

“The work is challenging, and our people are amazing.”

Downers

“Business volatility (true of any professional services firm), not yet breaking through to become a larger firm.”

“Our firm doesn't have strong standardized processes and could work on having more structured support for consultants.”

“Times of very heavy workload given the small firm competing against larger players able to undercut. Promising more but not allocating resources is frustrating.”

About The Poirier Group

The Poirier Group creates sustainable process and performance improvements and executes strategies for many kinds of organizations. Client engagements range from organizations in supply chain, manufacturing, retail grocery, private equity, IT, business services, health and life sciences, and government industries. Select client projects have included warehouse optimization, interim project management, cycle-time improvements, manufacturing and supply chain optimization, business transformations, operational cost reductions, human resource improvements, third-party risk management, procurement strategies, shared services coordination, and more.

The firm hires consultants with previous industry experience rather than career consultants, including those with backgrounds in engineering, commerce, IT, change management, strategy development, and execution. Often, consultants have specialized designations and certifications such as Lean Six Sigma, CA/CMA/CPA, Professional Project Management, Professional Logistician, Professional Engineer, Supply Chain Management Professional, Certified Procurement Professional, Professional Change Management, and various IT competencies. While consultants come from a variety of different fields and backgrounds, insiders say they share an underlying commitment to achieving results fostered through open, honest, and direct communication both with internal team members and with its clients.
