Career Opportunities

Our consultants work closely together on small teams and are often engaged on more than one project at a time. Our Associates and Senior Associates are primarily responsible for the research and analysis in a project; our Managers lead project teams and manage client relationships, while Principals and Partners steer strategic direction, develop new business and manage client relationships. From Associate to Partner, all are hands-on in the daily work of a project and it is not uncommon for Associates to be the lead consultant on a project and for Partners to be engaged in project analysis. Our consultants often collaborate with internal and client staff across our Benchmarking, Research, and Nonprofit Portfolios.

A career at Carlisle is largely what you make of it; we have no “up or out” policy. We encourage career development and place no limits on how far an Associate can progress within our company. If business school is in your future, we are proud to help our consultants gain admission to some of the top MBA programs in the country. People who join us post-MBA are interested in a small firm where opportunities for promotion can happen much more quickly than in a larger firm.
