About Censeo Consulting Group

Censeo Consulting Group specializes in strategy and operations, with a specific focus on mission-driven organizations. The firm tries to break away from the traditional consulting model by using its own business model, one that is based on three main principles: expertise and thought leadership, people and values-driven culture and tangible impact for clients. Censeo works with clients in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to dramatically improve organizational and operational performance, thereby strengthening their capacity to deliver more for every invested dollar. Depending on the client, this could translate to results from lower student tuition, improved environment, or more resources to create jobs.

Big fish in a small pond

Censeo Consulting Group has been recognized as one of the top small consulting firms to work for. Despite competing with 70-hour-week Fortune 500 companies, Censeo marches to the beat of its own drum with office culture, limiting working hours to prevent employee burnout. The consulting world has taken notice, with accolades from The Wall Street Journal and Consulting magazine for being a great "small firm" to work for. But the real proof is in the pudding: many of its principals and managing directors come from the giants of the consulting field: companies like Bain, McKinsey, A.T. Kearney, Boston Consulting Group, and more.

People first

It is no accident that Censeo has been honored as a great place to work. These distinctions are proof that the firm is following its people-focused consulting model, with "people" referring both to its clients and employees. The firm shifts attention to employees by taking on exciting, intellectually challenging projects, encouraging creativity and initiative, offering flexible career paths, limiting travel, keeping reasonable hours, allowing consultants to work where they choose and, of course, by offering competitive salaries and benefits. The firm is convinced that this approach will lead to both happier and more productive employees.

One key to the firm's happy and healthy employees is its willingness not only to limit travel but also to allow employees to work from home. All of Censeo's employees have the option to work remotely and flexible schedules are an option for all staff members.
