I’ve spent more than five years at Walden and am happy to say that I look forward to coming into work every day. I enjoy the benefits and culture of a small-medium sized business environment, the flexibility that it offers, and the variety of projects I get to be a part of. "
Peter BrightonProject Manager
Working with Walden is vastly different than any other job I’ve ever had. The creative and friendly nature as well as the academic and challenging work is very rewarding for a consultant. As a new professional, I appreciate the ability to work on a variety of jobs, while being surrounded by experienced professionals eager to aide in my learning. Being a small company, Walden takes on many large and interesting projects that most small firms would not be able to handle, while maintaining the personal benefits a small company can provide. Moving from California to New York to work with Walden is the best decision I could have made for my career and personal happiness. "
