Building a Cohesive, Collaborative Culture

At Locust Walk, we invest in all our people to build a cohesive, collaborative culture across global offices. Starting with a thorough recruiting process, continuing with onboarding and training and one-on-one mentorship, growing our people from within allows us to build a robust team that is equipped to deliver the best results for our clients.

Locust Walk is committed to hiring high-potential candidates from universities around the world for all our global offices.  Apply now to join our dynamic and collaborative organization where knowledge is cultivated, innovation is encouraged, and achievement is rewarded.

Locust Walk University

Our annual onboarding and training program sets both new undergraduate hires and all team members hired in the past 12 months up for success to learn what they don’t teach you in school. From finance, accounting and modeling to how to execute various deal types and strategy and market analytics projects, our three-week curriculum is fast paced, taught by Locust Walk team members and a great way to set our newest team members up for success.

Mentorship Model

Mentorship is an important part of both firm and individual success. Our goal is to create the next generation of leaders at Locust Walk both on the deal team and operations teams. We have experienced executives’ mentor each person on the team providing actionable feedback, coaching, advice and support to aid in the growth journey.

Locust Walk Cafe

One of our five core values, Enjoy the Ride, also means that we enjoy each other’s company. Each week we hold an hour-long get together to either celebrate the many holidays, birthdays, successes and have fun over hors d’oeuvre and a themed drink. This is one of the things the team most looks forward to on a weekly basis.

Quarterly Team Events

At Locust Walk, we like to be able to build relationships outside of the office. Every quarter, we have a team event that allows us to get together for a fun bonding activity. 

Monthly Team Meetings

As part of our Open and Courageous Communication and Growth Mindset values, we share with the whole team how the firm is performing, celebrate successes that quarter, what lessons we’ve learned, and how to improve as an organization. Everyone has an opportunity to ask questions and help shape our future together.

Locust Walk Clubs

Locust Walk employees have put together multiple clubs including our Book Club, Women’s Committee, Fantasy Sports League, Walking/Running Club, Whisky club, Book club, and Dog Lovers Club. The clubs are a great way to get to know each other outside of the work environment.
