Gaussian Consulting’s consulting practice is focused on helping clients achieve “profitable innovation.” They believe that they can deliver 60% of MBB value for 5% of the budget. This means that they have more projects per capita than most other firms (meaning as a consultant you’ll get broad industry exposure)
Gaussian Consulting has 2 main practice areas:
- Strategy for larger clients – focused on new lines of business, market expansion, new product intro, etc.
- SMB practice – focused on achieving efficiency and nimbleness through technology
The company has an Interesting staffing model. Their teams consist of more than 20 people, but they work with a wide range of external specialists to keep overhead down and to quickly scale staffing as needed. This helps them keep overhead down. Gaussian also has a flexible staffing structure (e.g., there are not always 2 analysts, 2 associates, 1 EM, 1 Partner on a project).
Another fact that separates Gaussian from most other consulting firms is that there is no travel to the client site. Their main office is in New York City, meaning your work will definitely be centered on NE-based clients.
Gaussian has no set comp structure since they hire on an as-needed basis.
