Point B – Why Work For Us?

You Can Driveundefined

You can go along for the ride or your can drive. Drivers create their own road maps. Does yours look something like this?

The Work

You get to lead challenging initiatives with industry-leading clients. You have a voice when it comes to the type of projects you work on. You build your skills, career, and network with every engagement. There's variety, and it doesn't get stale.

The Environment

You work in a place that takes pride in building trust and relationships. You get to chart your own career path based on what's important to you. Your values, your leadership skills, your expertise: they actually matter. And when you have an idea, you can run with it, because you are one of the owners.

The Life

Your company encourages you to have a life outside of work. You can work locally and build long-lasting relationships with local clients. And you get to work with people who want to make an impact in their communities.

The People

Your colleagues know their stuff, and they're eager to collaborate and share. For them, people come first, whether it's at work, at home, or in their communities. They think that success is something that's meant to be shared. And that makes them the kind of people you'll want to be around.

Remarkable.undefined

It's a word that describes the clients we serve, the work that we do for them and the Point B consultants who do that work. It's also how we describe our culture, which is based on collaboration, mutual respect, flexibility, choice, and a shared passion for succeeding together. Keeping our culture at the core of our business is a deliberate act.

We value people, relationships, ownership, honesty, excellence, choice, efficiency and service. We prioritize these values above all else and live them each day; they govern how quickly we grow, who we choose to do business with, who we hire, the leaders we select, and our financial goals and investments.

undefined100% Employee Ownership

In a move that celebrates Point B’s vision, culture, and award-winning client service, Point B founders have made employees 100% owners of the company.

100% ownership means our clients win. They get to partner with consultants that have an owner’s perspective on service. And our employees win. They have a 100% stake in the game. And our industry wins. We continue a long tradition of giving the best people in business a career they can be proud of. Learn more at pointb.com/ownership.

Choice and Flexibility

At Point B, you can choose your path. Choice and flexibility are a fundamental part of our culture, whether this means choosing to travel, deciding how much you want to work, selecting the cell phone you want to use, or spending time with family and outside of work activities.

Many organizations can say they promote work life balance, but we believe that actions speak louder than words. We want our associates to provide great outcomes for our clients, but not at the expense of their health or wellbeing. We are proud of our firm for its commitment to work life balance and believe it is one of sacred treasures of Point B. Point B has consistently scored high in flexibility in Consulting magazine’s annual “Best Firms” competition.

Events and Activities

Point B hosts dozens of events in each of our markets each year to promote our thriving and vibrant culture. One of the most highly anticipated and well-attended events is the two-night, three-day annual getaway in each market for associates and their partners.

Health and Wellness

Looking for a health insurance plan that’s in sync with your needs? Want to take a short-term leave without jeopardizing your healthcare coverage? Point B provides a comprehensive benefits package that gives you security, flexibility, support, and personal choice.

Point B offers multiple medical plans, dental and vision coverage, flexible spending accounts (FSAs), disability and life insurance, access to a health concierge, and an Employee Assistance Program that provides confidential short-term counseling, referral services, and more.

Financial Wellness

Our pay model reflects our commitment to flexibility. It ensures a base salary for our associates as they serve clients, transition between assignments and engage in professional development, and take vacation. In addition associates receive additional monthly pay for productivity beyond base expectations. Rather than being limited to a set salary that doesn’t flex with changing work expectations, our pay model ensures real-time compensation for the work you do. In addition, Point B doesn’t limit or dictate time off and holidays. We trust our associates to take the time off they desire while being respectful of client needs and the firm.

Our bonus process is unparalleled and reflects our culture of rewarding associates for the value and outcomes they create by sharing the benefits of a successful year.

Our 401(k) plan offers pretax or Roth options and a number of fund choices. To further help associates with their financial wellness, we also offer financial education resources.

In addition, our employee ownership plan is a qualified retirement plan with contributions that have outpaced the average 401(k) match by almost double since its inception. This plan allows our associates to benefit through annual allocations of Point B stock. Participant account values grow through these annual allocations, but may also grow over time through increases in Point B stock price.

Volunteering and Community Service Support

Part of the fabric of our firm is to help our communities thrive. Point B sponsors associates who take an active leadership role in non-profit or community boards via financial contribution. This allows our associates to make a difference with their skills, as well as provides the non-profit organization some added sponsorship dollars.

Total Health

We believe one of the most important things you can do for your total health and wellbeing is to do what you love, with people you enjoy and respect, in an environment that is collaborative and supportive no matter your stage in life. This is the firm culture we have created at Point B and continue to cultivate each and every day.

Point B is the Place to Be

We look for self-driven leaders who thrive working alongside high-caliber peers and dynamic, industry-leading clients. And above all, we aim to find colleagues who share our values, employee ownership mentality, and a desire to make Point B better. If your career roadmap looks like ours, consider the opportunities at Point B.

    I have been working at Point B full-time

    Pros

    The people are amazing, supporting, fun and energetic. We also do great work for our clients and are empowered to do the right thing for them even if it may not be the most profitable thing for us in the end.

    Cons

    As with all consulting, you are always pushing out of your comfort zone. This is a positive and a negative as it can be very exciting but also draining.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the amazing culture as we continue to grow.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Point B (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    You'll begin with a short screening call with a member of their HR staff during which they'll explain the interview process. You'll then schedule a 1 on 1 interview with an associate. If you move on from there you'll have a second associate interview, case study, and then another interview.
