A career with
Willamette Management Associates provides many
professional development opportunities and
benefits. Here are a few highlights!
We are known for our thought leadership in the disciplines of business valuation, forensic analysis, and financial opinion services. Our professional staff is encouraged to contribute to our profession by conducting empirical research studies, authoring journal articles and book chapters, and speaking at professional association seminars and conferences. Our quarterly client publication Insights is an award-winning technical journal. In fact, Insights articles are frequently cited in other professional journals and in court cases. We are always looking for professionals who will contribute advanced thinking and thought leadership to our profession.
Our analysts are expected to produce the highest quality work product-on each and every client engagement. We work with some of the largest companies in the world, from substantial family owned businesses to Fortune 500 corporations. We serve these clients with respect to complex transaction, taxation, or litigation engagements. All of our colleagues (from staff analysts to managing directors) are expected to make important contributions during client engagements and to have direct contact with senior client representatives. We provide a collegial work environment, not a bullpen atmosphere.
Our firm's reputation is based on our experience in turning complex client problems into clear, convincing solutions. Our firm's reputation is also based on our adherence to professional best practices and quality assurance procedures. If you prefer to work in a challenging environment where engagement quality is always expected, then you would enjoy working at Willamette Management Associates.
Core Areas of Practice
Our mix of services allows our professionals to exercise their skills in many areas of valuation consulting, forensic analysis, and financial opinions. Our professional services expertise is relatively focused. For example, we don't offer audit, legal, insurance, tax planning, securities brokerage, IT, or other services. As a result, we have a track record of results that is superior to-and more cost effective than-larger consulting firms. Due to our concentration of professional services, we have few conflicts of interest.
Benefits of a Boutique
We offer our employees the benefits of a large company with the firm culture and entrepreneurial freedom of a small company. Your talent matters to us. We are focused on providing solutions to client problems, not on maintaining internal bureaucracy. You will be an important member of our team. You will have the freedom to develop your own practice. Our professionals work independently in a collegial environment that fosters responsibility and initiative. At the same time, our analysts are encouraged to collaborate in order to reach well-supported analyses and best practices solutions for our clients.
Our analysts continuously develop their experience and expertise. We encourage our analysts to earn professional credentials, to perform research and publish, and to achieve personal prominence and eminence.
We offer competitive compensation and an
excellent benefit package.
We hire people whose thought leadership will contribute to
our firm's growth.

two stand out for me. First, I get the opportunity

fiercely contested or where there is a lot at
stake. Second, I have the autonomy to choose my

Willamette valuation analysts are free to follow
the career path that suits them the best.
