  • Hitesh
    Director, Service Delivery and Telecommunications
    Boston


    “I have the pleasure of working at CRA for coming up to 15 years this year. It’s an honor to call the talented people I work with across all the different practices, departments and geographies my colleagues, peers and friends. I enjoy the collaboration, culture and diversity as well as the way everyone is approachable and willing to share knowledge. I am fortunate in that I have been able to continually develop my skills, whether soft or technical, by learning from a range of people, from our junior staff up to senior management.”

    “One of the things that drew me to CRA was the hunger for innovation among professional staff: the opportunity to find openings in the work we do every day and make it better. There is great encouragement for new ideas, new technology, and modern practices. We are always pushing ourselves and others to be better. If you open yourself up to opportunities there are so many ways you can grow and learn at CRA – there is a cycle of constant learning.”
  • Chris
    Principal IT Specialist of Unified Communications for CRA
    New York


    “I really like how small CRA is but still maintains a Global presence. I have also had tremendous growth in the past six years at CRA. I started as a Service Delivery Specialist and have worked my way up to the Principal, IT specialist of Unified Communications. There is a lot of opportunity here if you are willing to put your bibs on and work hard.”
  • Maxine
    Director of Facilities, Real Estate and Office Services
    Boston


    “I got a great vibe from everyone when I interviewed 12 years ago. I thought the job would be challenging – I had no idea at that time how much my role would change over the years. I am so thankful I took the leap of faith to accept the job offer.”
  • Mike
    Director, Associate General Counsel
    Boston


    “While I am not involved in actual client work, I do see just about every project that comes in the door. CRA is involved in all sorts of truly interesting, front-page-of-the-WSJ matters on a very regular basis. In our department, we always try to be helpful, and we do our best to respond to requests and resolve issues as quickly as we can. We’re a small group, but together we have almost 40 years of institutional knowledge among us.”
  • Anne
    Communications Associate
    Boston


    “There is no typical day because each one brings exciting new challenges and questions. My work spans many different practices and departments so I have the chance to work closely with consultants and administrative staff. In my role, I share the story of CRA through public relations, recruiting materials, social media, and investor relations. I could be on the phone with a reporter from the Wall Street Journal, writing and posting to CRA’s social media channels, editing blog posts for the careers blog, or pouring over investor relations materials. It’s one of the most rewarding and exciting parts about CRA because you are always tackling new challenges.”
