Attributes We Look For
Do you set and smash through targets, love scoring the clinching goal for your team, and have the drive to excel beyond what’s asked of you? We do too. With drive, we set ambitious goals and push through obstacles to achieve them. We embrace a whatever-it-takes mindset and challenge ourselves to go beyond our comfort zones to continuously improve and never settle.
At AlphaSights, we believe we’re successful when we make our clients successful. Our top performers are energized by the thrill of immediate reward and revenue while staying focused on maximizing our clients’ outcomes. They think about every angle of a client’s problem, come up with actionable solutions, and execute on their ideas to deliver results.
Working at AlphaSights necessarily brings with it changing circumstances. Our most successful colleagues handle uncertainty, ambiguity, and change with confidence, positivity, and poise, rather than self-doubt, worry, and fear.
Many truly successful people are deeply humble. This mindset allows them to view the world with a growth mindset, enabling learning and development at every turn. At AlphaSights, we believe humility paired with confidence helps build an environment of continuous improvement without any sense of entitlement.
People are the foundation of our business, so developing and maintaining strong, trusted relationships is central to succeeding at AlphaSights. Those who succeed here are inherently empathetic and curious about others and their experiences, which helps them successfully engage with people across industries and levels.

At AlphaSights, everyone shares this responsibility. From devising new ways to better serve clients to growing the firm and embracing difficult questions, continued progress demands that everyone bravely challenge the status quo.
We look for well defined character traits, but we embrace that people from many backgrounds, cultures, and nationalities possess them. We have former teachers, lawyers, servicemen and women, entrepreneurs, bankers, and consultants. Our people enjoy hanging out together and know each other well enough to navigate the highs and the lows as a team.
