Personal & Professional Growth
Multi-faceted skill development and tremendous growth opportunity in an entrepreneurial setting
We place a significant emphasis on providing an environment for learning and growth via formal training on core consulting skills, our mentorship program, and on-the-job exposure. We have a robust knowledge management system that facilitates accelerated self-learning. We ensure that each of our professionals starts on the right foundation and builds skills thereafter. With each new level of requisite skills comes a new level of responsibility and roles – there is no limit to your growth at Gotham.
Core Skill Set Foundation
We foster strong analytical, communications, and leadership skills, and our consultants learn by directly interacting with Senior and Operating Partners who have risen to the top of their respective fields. Gotham professionals build trust- and performance-based relationships, both internal and external to the firm, and develop core competencies in strategy, operations, and finance. The skills that each of our professionals accrue are among the lasting benefits of a Gotham career.
By working on due diligence, Gotham consultants learn how to evaluate an investment opportunity – assessing markets and their growth potential, understanding competitive positioning, developing the company’s growth model, and pinning down operational opportunities. Due to the fast-paced nature of M&A work, our consultants become adept at working under tight deadlines and in intense environments.
By working with portfolio and other operating companies, Gotham consultants gain exposure to fundamental management issues and challenges. These dynamic companies have a change-mindset and are looking to maximize their operating performance.
Beyond consulting skills, our consultants have opportunities to develop broader business and general management skills such as marketing, business development, client management, recruiting, and thought leadership. We ensure that there are periods throughout the year when our consultants are not working on client projects and can focus on developing their broader business skills.
Grow and Take Leadership Role at Gotham
At Gotham, you have the opportunity to take leadership roles early on and create your own mark on growing Gotham. Our open culture is characterized by meritocracy and recognition of achievements – our consultants grow in position, responsibility, and reward in step with their performance. At Gotham there is no limit to your growth – we give our consultants responsibilities when they are ready.
Unconstrained Career Choices
The skill set built at Gotham enable our consultants to transition into multiple careers should they choose to. Over the years, our consultants gain invaluable skills, which have served our alumni well in subsequent private equity, venture capital, tech, consulting, and industry careers.
