“When I met with the directors in Lexington, I got the impression that it was important to them that I be able to grow in my role at Blue – they weren’t just looking for someone to meet charge hour goals.
I had gotten stuck in a rut at my prior firm, working on the same projects I’d been on for years, with very little help from firm leadership on how to develop in my career after I reached the manager level. It seemed like that would not be the case at Blue, and it turned out that my initial impressions were correct.
I get the opportunity to work on more diverse client engagements and also get pulled into special projects regularly that keep my day-to-day interesting and allow me to continue to grow as a professional. There’s a lot more autonomy across the offices than there was at the firm I came from. It’s a nice change being at a firm where decisions aren’t made solely by a handful of professionals in one office, then handed down to the other offices without any consideration for how their office and market may differ. Blue & Co. feels like a small firm in day-to-day operations; however, it has the resources of a large firm, so you get the best of both worlds.”
