I had the opportunity to work on site with the client and gain additional knowledge on foreign policy, government practice and domestic / international current events. The company culture is business casual, and family driven.
The only con I could say the company has is its lack of career development for young professionals in this position.
Advice to Management
Create new avenues for young professionals to grow within the company (career development).
I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Peridot Solutions (Tysons Corner, VA) in August 2011.
Casual, yet focused. The interview was with the CEO and President of the company, with another business analyst participating. Questions were directly relevant to the experience required by the particular client. Interviewers were honest and up-front about work environment, type of tasks and duties, expectations from the client. Personable and friendly. Not an adversarial type of interview.
