We work largely with product strategy, innovation, portfolio management, product development, and go-to market strategy. If someone is interested in and would like to develop a long term career in those types of projects, than TCG is a world-class organization that offers challenging projects in diverse industries and excellent exit opportunities with all types of firms from Fortune 500 companies to start ups. Our firm also offers the chance to minimize travel and a lot of the potentially negative impacts it can have on your health and lifestyle. If someone wants to focus on areas such as operations, system implementation, cost cutting, or post merger integration - there are other firms that will likely be a better fit. If they would like to work on product innovation, design and marketing strategy - this is a great place for them to develop their skills and career.
