Working at Bates White

When our founders started the firm, they established a workplace where creativity would be nurtured, diversity respected, and ingenuity rewarded. This culture still thrives today with more than 200 professionals and a reputation for being a top place to work.

From day one, you have a Sponsor who serves as your mentor and works with you to find meaningful assignments that contribute to your career growth. You also have a Peer Coach who “shows you the ropes” and helps you become acclimated to the firm.

Professional development
At Bates White, you never stop learning. You receive formal and informal training including customized courses designed and taught by colleagues. You can participate in industry conferences and academic seminars by leading economic professors. And, perhaps the most valuable training you receive is the hands-on learning from peers and senior colleagues.

Opportunities to get involved
Everyone contributes to making Bates White a great place to work. You can be part of a recruiting team, develop training programs, lead a community service initiative, or serve as a mentor. There are lots of ways to gain experience beyond your day-to-day work.

Attracting talented and diverse people
The firm’s leadership is committed to fostering and maintaining a diverse workforce. Our Diversity-Inclusion Council not only ensures this commitment is articulated, but, more importantly, that it is executed. Our employees come from a wide range of cultures, backgrounds, and academic fields including economics, mathematics, statistics, business, engineering, finance, physics, information technology, and more.

A supportive and fun environment
You’ll have access to the latest technologies, ergonomic furniture, and extensive research resources. You’ll enjoy free food and beverages, espresso machines, and a bistro—where you can gather with colleagues to play table tennis and billiards, or share a meal. And, you can even pick your own office during our annual office selection process. The firm also offers lots of social activities including receptions, picnics, anniversary and holiday celebrations, pick-up basketball, yoga, baking club, tennis, and after-hour informal gatherings.
