Working at Coherent

Directors at Coherent Economics will have the opportunity to use their accumulated skills and expertise on a daily basis to help our clients solve their most pressing economic and financial challenges. They will also have opportunities to advance their professional careers as experts, business developers, and leaders.

We take great pride in our culture. The entire Coherent Economics team worked together to develop our Values, and each new team member must agree to uphold them. Our Core Values guide the firm's philosophy, vision, and strategy, and our Workplace Values guide our daily actions. Together, these values define who we are as a firm and as professionals.

As a Consultant at Coherent, you will be a beneficiary of these values—and you will learn how to help pay it forward as you train and mentor your team members.

Directors are expected to be advanced in project management, data analysis, detailed research, and preparing professional work product, and to have a working knowledge of the economic consulting industry. Depending on the size and scope of the case and the needs of the firm, they are expected to manage engagements, one or more “sections” of a case, or individual projects. They are expected to supervise and mentor Analysts and Consultants, think critically about the cases they work on, draft and edit expert reports and other complex work product, and communicate effectively with Staff, Experts, and Clients.

  • Ensure Staff adheres to best practices in creating and auditing work product
  • Participate in recruiting and other non-consulting activities, as needed
  • Embody and model for others the Coherent Economics Core and Workplace Values

You will need to balance multiple projects and responsibilities at a time. Our work can be in intense, particularly around deadlines, and will require occasional evening or weekend work.

  • Master’s degree or Ph.D. in Economics or a closely related field
