Working at Bates White has been a great experience.

Coming to the firm as a foreign national directly from graduate school meant a radical change in my life. Thanks to the constant help and encouragement of my colleagues, the transition has been smoother than I could have ever imagined.

I look at having the opportunity to work at Bates White as having the best of two completely different worlds: academic and consulting. Working in this diverse, collegial, and intellectually challenging environment, I feel as if I am part of an academic department. At the same time, all my work and efforts have a direct, and sometimes immediate, impact on important business matters and decisions for our clients.

I am especially impressed by the emphasis Bates White places on having a diverse and respectful environment. Diversity is always considered an asset that improves work quality—it is never viewed as an issue to overcome.
