What is the Eagle Hill Culture?

At Eagle Hill, you’re not just a number.  Beyond the technical skills and expertise you bring, we recognize and value your individually lived experiences.  The words Diversity and Inclusion are not a catch phrase at Eagle Hill.  Diversity is woven into the fabric of our actions and words with each other.  Inclusion is expressed through the mutual respect we show for one another and our clients.  We know that our differences make us stronger and result in delivering the best solutions.

Is Eagle Hill for me?

In the workplace, we offer employees a personalized experience, paired with the best experiences and benefits of a big firm.  Our smaller size provides our people with exceptional opportunities to accelerate their careers through skills development, access to the highest levels of leadership, and opportunities to take on increasing levels of responsibilities earlier in their careers.  While we work hard, Eagle Hill cares for the whole person and their commitments and passions outside of work.  This translates to a work-life flexibility unmatched by our competitors, which only enhances the energy and enthusiasm we bring to work every day. Eagle Hill supports our people by offering a competitive compensation and benefits package, including 100 percent company paid health insurance premiums for employees and their eligible dependents.
