Summit's growth featured in several major media outlets
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.

I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Summit Consulting (Washington, DC) in May 2016.
I applied online and had an initial conversation in late March. I provided a couple of writing samples along with my resume. A Summit manager also took the time to attend a conference presentation which I led at AERA in April. In early May I was invited for an in-person interview that lasted about 2 1/2 hours. The interview consisted of half-hour sessions with pairs of individuals ranging from the principal and founder to several managers and directors, and also included a chat with two consultants. The process was highly efficient and well organized; the interviewers clearly knew my resume and asked well-prepared questions. They gave me a tour of their office space: lovely architecture with lots of glass and a modern, open-office layout. The manager also offered to take me to lunch but I declined.
