Working at TPG
Unlike most corporate jobs, a career in management consulting is exciting, challenging, and an extraordinary opportunity to learn and grow. At TPG, you will work with exceptional people and become an integral part of our team.
Working hands-on with our clients means travelling to their head oﬃce, factory or distribution center. From getting your hands dirty on the shop ﬂoor alongside our clients to meeting with executives in a boardroom, each day offers exciting new opportunities. Its important to be prepared for almost anything, and be resilient when faced with changing priorities!
During the current state of Covid-19, travel has vastly decreased to essential trips only and we continue to work remotely while monitoring the status of the pandemic and complying with public health guidelines.
This past year has proven how our relationships with clients are based on trust and integrity. While we are no longer able to work directly at our clients’ site, the delivery of output has not impacted the project success and clients have not paused our services
At TPG, we expect you to deliver your best work, and we’ll work with you to achieve each success!
We have an Award-Winning Corporate Culture
We Live by Our Values
Collaborate and Participate
Everyone at TPG is willing and ready to help and learn from one another. We have a flat structure, which fosters trust, collaboration and unlimited growth potential.
Everyone is encouraged to “put their fingerprints on the organization” — we want to see every member, regardless of role or tenure, believe in making long-lasting contributions to the company.
While academic credentials and a lengthy resume can be important, a hardworking attitude and drive for success will set you above the rest! We actively seek out individuals who have a proven ability to thrive under pressure and produce results, while also being supportive team members.
We look for people who demonstrate integrity, a passion for continuous learning, excellence, and serving the greater good in all aspects of our business. These values, and our commitment to upholding them, are in large part what diﬀerentiates us from other top-tier consulting ﬁrms!
Feedback is an integral part of the ground rules when working with TPG, and is vital for the growth of the business and our people. Our group promotes “open, honest and direct” feedback from every level of tenure and seniority in the organization.
Here at TPG, constructive feedback is provided regularly and informally, and always communicated one-on-one.
Our people are our greatest asset and it’s important to us that every team member is given the tools and support to excel in their careers. TPG supports performance improvement initiatives including frequent in-house ‘lunch and learns’, a professional development book club, and reimbursement of relevant certificates, workshops and industry conferences.
At TPG, one of our values is Learning. With that in mind, our people are driven to continuously learn and stay abreast of the latest innovations in the industry and maximize our potential.
When new employees embark on a career at TPG, they are set up with a Buddy from day one to get them situated in the company and make them feel welcome. Following several weeks into the firm, we work with you to create your professional development plan and set you up with a Mentor to meet monthly for career-related guidance.
While our team works hard to achieve excellence for our clients, we carry the same drive after hours to build team relationships and seek out new hobbies. We know that fostering a true team-oriented environment plays a crucial role in delivering the best possible work on every project, every time.
Whether in-person or virtually, we have at least 3 weekly touchpoints as a group:
- ‘Operations call’ to share project updates and successes;
- ‘Lunch and Learns’ to develop new skills;
- A ‘Social Hour’ to reconnect and unwind on Fridays;
- While working for home, we started a voluntary ‘Breakfast Club’ one morning a week as an opportunity to connect in small groups with David Poirier.
- There are also frequent informal touch-points within project teams either daily or weekly.
Twice a year, our team attends offsite gatherings over a weekend in the spring and fall. Offsites provide an opportunity to reconnect, strengthen team relationships, and have fun! The weekends are focused on team building, business strategy, and goal setting, with active participation from every member.
Each year, our Pay It Forward Campaign (part of the Purpose Beyond Profit Initiative) provides each team member with a fund to make a donation to a cause or charitable organization of their choice. This program is a commitment to donate a percentage of billable hours to providing in-kind consulting services to non-profit organizations in our community.
Each year during the holidays, each employee is provided with a fund and supported in making a donation to a cause or charitable organization of their choice.
