CrossCountry Consulting – Why Work With Us?

CrossCountry Consulting is a trusted business advisory firm that provides customized finance, accounting, human capital management, risk, operations and technology consulting services to leading organizations facing complex change.

We partner with our clients to help them navigate pressing business challenges and achieve goals related to improving operations, minimizing risks and enabling future growth.

Our Culture
People are the cornerstone of our company, and our success relies on their development and retention. Our culture reflects an inclusive, collaborative, and supportive environment that motivates individuals to always strive for the best outcome and enjoy what they do. 

Our Core Values
We are guided by four principles that reflect our commitment to our clients and to each other. We hire and develop dynamic, driven people who share the same values, enthusiasm and pride in their work. By doing this, we ensure that we leave a positive mark on our clients, our community and our industry. 

Our Vision: A Better Experience… for Our Clients… for Our People

In 2011, we shared a vision for creating a distinctly new type of advisory firm, one that would bring the best aspects from our Big 4 and Arthur Andersen roots along with an unwavering commitment to building the right culture. 

Our practice is based on what we call the “better experience model” which is reflective of a commitment we have to our clients and to our people.

We agreed that the company’s culture would be the most important asset and success factor leading to the recruitment, retention and loyalty of some of the best people in the industry.

From the beginning, we set out to not grow for growth’s sake; instead, we believe in hiring the right people that fit our culture and continuously developing them into great consultants.  If we can do this, growth will take care of itself.

We strive to provide our consultants with a better experience by providing a meaningful work-life balance, challenging work opportunities and continual investment in them, both personally as well as professionally.

We also recognize that each of our clients have distinct and unique needs and challenges. To provide a better experience for our clients, we make sure to listen to their needs, listen some more to ensure that we are a true partner that can design customized solutions to fit their individualized and specific set of needs.

This is what we believe sets us apart from our competitors. Our “better experience model” is more than a corporate value – it’s a part of our DNA as a company.
