Sibson provides a range of career development opportunities, including internal and external courses, a mentoring program, tuition reimbursement and research and study leaves.

Sibson recognizes the importance of helping employees balance work demands with personal responsibilities, as well as the need to recruit and retain a diverse work force of the highest caliber. That's why we offer our employees flexible work arrangements such as non-traditional workweeks or telecommuting. Flexible work arrangements are considered on a case by case basis, taking business and personal needs into consideration.

Sibson's career framework provides a route to professional advancement within the company. Because of our smaller size and collaborative atmosphere, our employees are able to work on a wide range of diverse projects and customize their careers within this framework according to their interests.

It depends on your career focus. For actuaries, it is very helpful to pass the exams and earn the credentials offered by the Society of Actuaries. For other careers such as fiduciary liability consulting, it is important to have certain insurance licenses. For other careers, credentials may not be required. If you apply for a posted position and are called for an interview, you will hear what credentials might be useful or required for that particular position.

At the entry level, applicants for actuarial positions should have passed at least one actuarial exam.

Sibson employees have a myriad of backgrounds, ranging from humanities degrees to technical degrees. What is critical is a commitment to client service, a track record of achievement and strong communication, problem-solving and analytical skills.

It depends on the career you are interested in. If actuarial consulting, then a quantitative-oriented degree (e.g., Actuarial Sciences, Mathematics) is most relevant. If you are seeking a career in one of our Human Capital consulting practices, a degree in Human Resources, Organization Development and/or Organization/Human Behavior might be most relevant. Generally, however, a degree that develops one's quantitative skills and ability to think critically and solve complex problems is desirable.

There may be, depending on what your work experience to date has been. Moving into consulting mid-career does pose some challenges, but there are many people who have the skills and expertise to make the transition. It does, however, take a considerable amount of commitment, self-awareness, openness to coaching, and willingness to share the risks inherent in changing careers. It may also require flexibility when it comes to "your" compensation requirements.
