Senior Consulting Roles

The career path at DEVA is steep but extremely rewarding. Take a look at our senior roles.


The manager role is the one from which top management is groomed, with most managers rising internally from the consultant position. As a manager, you assume a great deal of responsibility.

You learn to manage the entire analytical process, become an expert on the client's issues and industry, and recommend solutions that make a real impact. You not only provide answers to questions, but detail their strategic implications.

The next step for a successful manager is promotion to senior manager.

Senior Manager

Senior managers, most often promoted from within the firm, serve as leaders for both case teams and clients. Senior managers take responsibility for cracking clients' toughest problems and presenting insights in a compelling way that convinces the client to take action.

Internally, senior managers have a seat and a voice at the leadership table; you'll play a pivotal role in the office as you fulfill various leadership duties, increase practice-area expertise, and support associate consultants and consultants.

Successful senior managers move on to the role of associate partner.

Associate Partner

Associate partners take a big-picture approach to solving our clients' toughest business problems. Because they straddle the roles of manager and partner, their responsibilities range from inspiring and guiding a team on a day-to-day basis to cultivating the DEVA relationship with senior clients—from owning a strategic vision to compelling clients to action. They grow increasingly adept at driving clear hypotheses, breakthrough analyses and actionable strategic insights for organizational and operational improvement.

Associate partners are most often promoted internally from the senior manager role and are considered future leaders of the firm whose next step is the role of partner.


Nomination to partner is a formal acknowledgement of personal merit and accomplishment. As a partner, you'll have considerable responsibilities such as developing lasting client relationships, be a major contributor to the growth of the company, defining innovating strategies and achieving results, fundamental roles in internal proccesses and an acknowledged expert in a capability and industry.

Partners are typically chosen from within the firm.
