Emily Cotton was in her second day on the job at the Analysis Group — fresh out of college — when an executive asked her an unexpected question: Had she thought about graduate school yet?
From the moment Cotton joined the Boston consulting firm in 2005, she said, colleagues have gone out of their way to give her valuable advice and guidance in advancing her career.
Several co-workers, for instance, helped her prepare applications for business school. The company paid much of the tab for her to attend the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. And when she returned after getting her MBA, co-workers helped her take on new kinds of projects to broaden her skills. She is now an associate at the firm.
“Everyone is willing to help,” says Cotton. “It’s really not a competitive place.”
For five years in a row, Analysis Group has climbed onto the Globe’s Top Places to Work list. This year it ranks as the number one large company.
