After four years in risk management and a PhD in Economics, which allowed me to connect both the academic and professional worlds, I wanted to work in a consulting firm in strategy in order to use original methods and propose innovative solutions.
I did an internship at eleven during my studies and I didn’t hesitate to come back when I had the opportunity to do so 2 years later. After an experience as a data scientist for a London-based fintech company, I wanted to work in an environment with high technical requirements but also strategic and entrepreneurial dimensions.
During my last internship in banking during ESSEC, I contributed to the digitalization of several services. Wishing to continue along this path, I wanted to join a strategy consulting firm focused on innovation and data, serving companies’ best interests.
I chose to join eleven because of its unique positioning, which allows me to be a data scientist as well as a strategy consultant. I wanted to work on business issues without abandoning the technical aspect, which is for me a true source of value creation.
After a first experience in quantitative research I felt like I was drifting apart from my business side and focusing too much on the technical aspects of things. Eleven – throughout its vast portfolio of offers – provided me with an environment where I could tackle both business and technical issues.
After an academic path and first experiences in public administration, I was looking to join a strategy consulting firm in order to broaden my horizons by discovering various industries. The digital positioning of eleven has perfectly met this expectation, since the technological challenges we work on are common to many industries (new distribution channels, IoT, data exploitation…)
After four years as a researcher in the academy, I found a place where I can harness the acquired competences on real application. At eleven, I have the opportunity to develop my business sense and my data knowledge in an intellectually stimulating environment. I think that the synergy between data and business allows achieving tangible results in a limited time.
I am convinced that the digital revolution is deeply transforming the processes of corporates’ strategic decision-making and has become key to beat competition. Thus, pursuing a career in digital consulting places me at the heart of the transformation in which I wished to evolve. Eleven appealed to me for several reasons: the firm specifically tackles the digital revolution challenges, including AI and Data Science, and rapidly gets its consultants exposed to high-impact projects.
After 3 years in a top 3 generalist management consulting firm, which allowed me to build solid consulting and methodological foundations as well as to gain knowledge on various industries and functions, I wanted to work in a more agile and entrepreneurial structure, and to finally specialize. Eleven offered me to fulfill both these desires, as well as to focus on the growth coming from digital opportunities.
The two reasons why I joined eleven are part of its unique positioning : an undisputed expertise on digital and data, and a deeply-rooted entrepreneurial mindset. This mindset translates not only into consultants’ autonomy and high-level exposure during assignments, but also into the commitment of each consultant in elevens’ daily life and growth.
