Our people love working at Pepper Foster

Pepper Foster Consulting was designed from the ground up to be a great place to work and build a career and we are very proud that we have been recognized nationally and locally as one of the best companies to work for in America. We're also very proud that we have an Employee Net Promoter Score of 80.

What is Employee Net Promoter Score?

Employee Net Promoter Score has become an industry standard for measuring employee satisfaction and loyalty. eNPS scores range from -100 to +100 and a score of 10 to 30 is generally considered to be a good score. The published eNPS for Deloitte in the US is 24 for example. Accenture scored 14 and PwC scored 0. So, a score of 90, truly is world class.

We are very proud of our company and culture and very grateful for our employees and their support. To understand how Pepper Foster Consulting can delight, impress, and make a difference for you, click the Join link above, or send us an email at join@pepperfoster.com.

"Putting action behind words and giving back to the community through pro-bono or reduced rate consulting services for non-profit organizations. Taking sustainability seriously. Recruiting and retaining high-caliber individuals, each of whom have amazing gifts on and off the field. The whole of Pepper Foster is more than the sum of its parts."

"Transparency: the bi-weekly updates and transparency around salary and levels is truly valued."

"They do a fantastic job of maintaining transparency across all levels of the firm. They also have exceeded all expectations when it comes to rewarding and recognizing their employees. I have been promoted based on my potential and current performance, without having to “prove” that I’m already doing the job or announce what role I am going for."

"Culture/Community: Even during a pandemic, the team stayed connected, and managed to provide some relief from the daily stresses for team members and their family members! It's clear that everyone cares about the well-being of their PFC colleagues and will go above and beyond to support each other."

"PFC is very transparent about what is happening so no one feels caught off guard. Employees are allowed to share ideas openly and honestly without fear of dismissal, most of the time ideas for improvement are taken seriously and acted upon. Leadership makes itself available to everyone, no matter what level or how tenured you are and everyone is given a voice."
