maxA&MblogAfter graduating in May of 2015 from The University of Texas with a BBA in Finance, I’m now an Analyst with Alvarez & Marsal Performance Improvement in Houston, TX.

I originally pursued a career in Real Estate brokerage due to my strengths in communication and relationship building. After working a few internships in the industry, I realized my desire and capability to tell stories with data. Therefore, I took an internship in the Finance and Accounting department at a software company. Within this role, I analyzed multiple business units and interfaced with executives to understand and make recommendations to the overall corporate strategy. For the first time in my life, I woke up and felt excited about going to work every day.

After discovering my new love for business strategy, I began researching more about management consulting. During the fall of my senior year, I attended every consulting info session. In contrast to most of the consulting info sessions previously attended, I enjoyed learning something new from a leadership discussion with the C.E.O. of Alvarez & Marsal Performance Improvement, Tom Elsenbrook. To get a sense of what it is like to work in a culture that Mr. Elsenbrook nurtured, follow this link to an article he recently posted on LinkedIn titled, A Simple Path to an Entrepreneurial Culture.

What is your mission statement? Do you have clarity of purpose? Mr. Elsenbrook also feels you need clarity of purpose to navigate daily encounters, “At various moments, we want recognition, satisfaction, money, power, belonging, wisdom, love, respect and/or a lasting legacy. But to get one, we often have to give up another.” Follow this link to see what clarity of purpose looks like from Mr. Elsenbrook’s perspective.

If you are someone who enjoys an entrepreneurial culture, problem solving, and working with talented teams, then you should research more about what it’s like to work for Tom Elsenbrook by looking him up on LinkedIn and reading more of his posts. Additionally, the resume drop deadline for the Analyst role on OCR is September 20th. If you have any questions about Alvarez & Marsal, consulting, or are just seeking career guidance, feel free to reach out to me!
