What makes BEworks a unique consulting firm?
BEworks approaches management consulting differently than other firms, with our overarching mission being to help leaders apply scientific thinking to their organizations’ challenges. In that respect, we help our clients by applying behavioral science techniques to diagnose the consumer mindset, develop scientifically grounded strategies and validate our recommendations through experiments and research findings.
What is the skill set you are looking for in an Associate?
A thriving BEworks Associate holds a PhD in a behavioural science-related discipline, respects and values the scientific method, and is skilled at communicating scientific findings effectively with diverse audiences. Additionally, we look for individuals who are passionate, highly collaborative and conscientious.
What does the career progression look like for an Associate at BEworks?
An Associate role at BEworks is intended to provide a long-term career for scientists who wish to apply their research to real-world challenges. After successfully moving through our three-year rotational program and demonstrating a proven track record of leading complex projects, Associates are promoted to Senior Associate. Over time, BEworks will be expanding its management requirements, so non-research roles will become increasingly available.
What internship opportunities are available at BEworks?
BEworks hires Practice team interns every summer, with the internship program beginning in May and ending in August. Our interns aren’t the coffee and donut runners. They are PhD students who have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills towards solving some of today’s most pressing business and policy challenges, such as shifting energy consumption behavior or helping financial planners measure customer risk in a more valid and reliable manner.
