Investing in Me: A Consultant’s Viewpoint
Since joining the company three years ago, I have had the tremendous opportunity to work with a diverse group of people, from junior to executive, across the company. Arc Aspicio hires hard working and passionate employees so I learn a lot. Their passion is clear, both externally on our client projects, and internally with work on strategic initiatives and All Hands meetings.
The company’s commitment to giving back is infectious; our work at the Central Union Mission, the Fast and Furriest 5K, National Search Dog Foundation, and our pro bono client, Courtney’s House, encourages me to always think of how my skills can help others in not only the homeland security community, but my local community. I have grown tremendously in my time at Arc Aspicio and can’t wait to see what the future brings!

What distinguishes Arc Aspicio apart from the rest? For me, it’s the investment in an employee’s personal and professional growth. Arc Aspicio is a place where employees are supported and encouraged to keep learning, growing, and being challenged.
I started as a Junior Associate, new to business development, strategy work, and process improvement. Now, as a Senior Associate, I have learned these skills and I am teaching others! Arc Aspicio does a great job at sending employees to external trainings, having case studies, hosting listening sessions, recommending books, and leading All Hands discussions on consulting skills and mission knowledge. One way that Arc Aspicio shows their commitment to learning is our Peer Groups. The Leaders by Design Peer Group has been a fantastic opportunity for me to learn management skills and connect more with my colleagues at the Senior Associate level. I am part of a leadership-focused peer group again this year, developing relationships with a new group of people and exploring topics in leadership, consulting, and entrepreneurship.
I was excited when #gratitude was announced as our strategic theme back in 2016 as it embodies recognizing and awarding amazing work. This theme has increased employee morale, efficiency, satisfaction, and productivity. It inspires me to always work hard and reciprocate the #kudos to other team members.
