Summit Consulting – Why Work For Us?


At Summit, we solve complex analytical challenges with unparalleled customer service and extensive client collaboration. Our distinct capabilities include Federal Credit modeling and forecasting, litigation analytics, applied statistics and economics, mortgage finance, financial services, and program evaluation.

Despite the wide array of services that Summit offers, the company shares a passion for econometrics, statistics, and data modeling. We also have a passion for people, clients and employees alike. We not only find answers to our clients’ most complex problems, but we make sure they understand those answers. We empower our employees to do great things, by offering a comprehensive benefits package and hosting in-house technical trainings. Summit dedicates itself to staying at - and pushing - the forefront of analytics’ best practices.

Summit: complexity simplified.


We use statistics, econometrics, and financial modeling to collaborate on projects that inform policy makers’ decisions. We help government agencies use their resources and our tax dollars wisely. This is heady work, and we are passionate about it.

To maximize our productivity and creativity as we help our clients, we work in a flexible, open environment with plenty of space for on-the-fly conversations, brainstorming sessions, all-team meetings, and our in-house professional development sessions (known as PEAKS). Our kitchen is a hub of activity where we grab snacks and coffee or unwind over lunch or foosball.

And we work in a fabulous building! Centrally located near our clients, the metro, and the Capitol, 601 New Jersey Avenue NW is a LEED Gold Certified building with a fitness center, a bike room, a parking garage, and a rooftop deck. Our building features lobby coffee service and personalized climate control through Comfy, and we have in-building concierge services that include dry cleaning. When we walk out the door, we have access to an array of food trucks, restaurants, and other venues for socializing.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Summit Consulting in July 2017.

    Interview

    First interview was brief, only thirty minutes in length reviewing my experience, education and interests. Fairly casual conversation. Second interview was with a panel, and it was 2.5 hours long with three rounds of interviews by two employees each, where they took turns asking me about my technical skills and experiences coding.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of questions on my technical skills and statistical programming experience. Most questions were in relation to formal reports and presentations I had previously made. Some of them were very odd, specific questions on what command I should use to perform some task in a statistical software.   Answer Question
