“Please forgive me for not responding sooner. Happy to discuss this topic with you.” “Happy to do that.

Life at Credera Summary

April 17, 2017 Briana Gentry

Over the last six months we “open-sourced” the Credera culture in a series called Life at Credera.

Inviting Others In

March 30, 2017 Drew Allen

Following the conclusion of my first project as a consultant, I felt a bit uneasy about the whole thing. We were at the client site for eight weeks, and just like that, it was over. The client was appreciative and happy with our work, but I had my doubts. Would our work be beneficial in […]

The Dreaded Group Project

March 22, 2017 Johna Rutz

In consulting, every project is a group project. As a recent university graduate, the phrase “group project” still evokes a mental montage of three bleary-eyed students hunched over computers at 4 a.m. struggling to meet an 8 a.m. deadline: Memories of texting each other frantically an hour before class trying to debug a rogue SQL […]

Redefining Work-Life Balance

March 16, 2017 Briana Gentry

Many define “work-life balance” as not allowing a career to impede personal life, and personal life not to hinder a career. But there is a different way to view the distinction between our personal life and our job. Both our careers and personal lives are significant and important. Both deserve our commitment and time. Regardless […]
