Career Development

PDG provides an exciting opportunity for young professionals to build their experience while being supported to develop and grow to their potential. Our approach to career development assists our staff, especially young consultants, to identify their career needs, plan for their realization, implement these plans, and periodically review their progress. This process is tailored to each staff member based on their current role and desired development path. Consultants are encouraged to develop their skills with opportunities for rapid career development and advancement within the firm.

Take a look at the Working at PDG above to see what our current and former employees had to say about PDG’s commitment to continuous learning and development.
