“Regarding the development I received at Xelay Acumen, I want to express my most sincere gratitude for all that I learned, including but not limited to the structured problem solving approach, effective communication skills, empathy for others, etc.”
“It has been 6 months since my last day at Xelay, and I had the opportunity to work at a much larger global management consulting firm. However, I can say with confidence that after I left, 80% of my professional growth came from me revisiting the things I learned at Xelay. Looking back at my Xelay days, I regret how I did not pay enough attention and try my very best to master the skills taught by Alex and other senior Xelayers. Although you, current Xelayers, may not realize it now, those skills/mindset work anywhere in the world, and I guarantee you that you can easily become the top performer at any other firm if you learn them well. So try to believe and act the way Xelay teaches you to. I know it seems so incredibly difficult (sometimes impossible) for now, but you will be thankful after you leave.”
“Looking back, I feel fortunate to have started my career at Xelay right after college. In 18 months I learned things that may take me years to learn elsewhere (most likely I will never learn them elsewhere). Soon I will start working at one of the oldest and most prestigious strategy & management consultancies, and the senior people there were surprised to see the skills I displayed during case interviews. I owe 100% of them to Xelay.”
