How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started here 4 years ago as an associate business analyst. I immersed myself in the culture and studied my mentors, who encouraged me to take on difficult projects. My career progressed to senior level, then project lead, and now a delivery and client success manager. The support system here has helped me quickly adapt and succeed in my career.
