Eagle Hill is an unconventional consulting company because of the way we work hand in hand with our clients to exceed their expectations. It’s a true collaboration of intelligence and innovation. Our unconventional consulting is designed to bring out the best in our employees and to deliver the best results for our clients.
Eagle Hill’s smaller size and our evolution as a family-founded and family-oriented company means we are friendly and approachable. Our consultants bring a unique blend of energy and experience to every client project we take on. Nearly 40 percent of our employees have client-side experience in their backgrounds—10 years’ worth on average—and nearly 50 percent hold advanced degrees.
At Eagle Hill we consider ourselves to be a
community of consultants, rather than a
traditional consultancy. Our culture and approach with clients is rooted in a strong sense of relationships and collaboration. Eagle Hill’s environment is supportive and not driven by internal competition among consultants. Providing real and meaningful work-life balance to our employees, while also delivering extraordinary management consulting results to our clients, is critical to Eagle Hill’s success. We have been consistently recognized as a “Great Place to Work” by the Washingtonian, this year also ranking among the 2015 “Top Workplaces” in the DC area from The Washington Post, and have received previous awards as a Washington Business Journal “Best Places to Work”.
Our founders broke from the pack of large, traditional consulting companies in order to establish a firm that is truly collaborative, unified in nature, and possesses an entrepreneurial spirit. Eagle Hill applies the best tools and methodologies of larger consultancies in the nimble environment of a smaller firm. Consultants at Eagle Hill have the freedom to come up with the right creative solutions for our clients without bureaucratic constraints. We have four career levels—Associate, Manager, Director and Senior Director—with defined specific capabilities for each, and employ the Topgrading Approach to hiring. Using this thorough and robust process enables Eagle Hill to hire the best of the best.
At Eagle Hill, we believe that individuals from
diverse backgrounds and with unconventional
career paths enhance both our community of consultants and our client relationships. To help
you grow your career, Eagle Hill offers many professional development resources to employees, such as:
I have been working at Eagle Hill Consulting full-time (Less than a year)
- Collaborative and supportive company culture
- Room to grow and expand skills
- Interesting projects and the chance to be creative
- Access to leadership
- Great people who make the day fly by
- Professional development opportunities
- Flexibility and an understanding of the importance of your personal life - actual work life balance!
The company has some very normal (and expected) growing pains. As we grow and expand, it's more important than ever to keep open lines of communication between all levels and not have too strong of a hierarchy. But truthfully, I don't have complaints about working here. It's a great place.
Advice to Management
Keep it up! Particularly, continue to leverage the insight and experiences of associates, and keep up the focus on collaboration and work-life balance.
The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Eagle Hill Consulting (New York, NY).
Eagle Hill uses the topgrading approach for the interviews. They claim that's what makes them different and it does in a negative way. If you're in HR and you have lots of experience and you need to take 4 hours to interview someone then you clearly can't or do know how to automatically know what you're looking for. They go back to high school. Funny how the top consulting firms don't have that long of a process.
Bottom Line: If a company has to go back to high school and college to ask people how they were and it's been 20 years since graduating. If a company can't make decisions with 13 years of work experience and information - that should be indicative of their work in consulting.
