Compass Lexecon is interviewing for the position of Analyst. However, if a candidate presents with sufficient work experience and academic background, they can be considered for a Senior Analyst title. The position demands strong ability to perform quantitative analysis, knowledge of or interest in economics, and a broad range of research skills. Analysts are involved in nearly all aspects of project work, interacting closely with other analysts, directors, and firm principals in analyzing data, preparing client presentations, and drafting reports. Through their involvement, Analysts gain a comprehensive understanding of the industries and public policy issues relevant to the projects we work on. As skills and competencies develop, there will be greater opportunity for independent work and client interaction.
