Bridget participated in 84.51°'s Development Program and is now enjoying a career as an Insights Analyst at the company.

She shares her experience of the program: "It’s such a well-rounded program, so no matter what your interests are or if you aren’t sure exactly what bucket you fall into, you have the opportunity to explore that."

"A lot of companies just throw you in and say you don’t have to worry about training because you’re hitting the ground running from day one. With the 84.51° Development Program, you get a better foundation for the future because you’re not frazzled from the get-go," she adds.

"You get the time to ask questions and figure out who the experts are for each language or methodology. Other training programs probably aren’t as all-encompassing with daylong sessions devoted to training. Other companies seem to encourage more independent learning, whereas 84.51° starts with classroom style learning, which allows you to have a great transition from school to a career."

Passionate about data science

Sara is a Technology Specialist at 84.51° who also started her career with the Development Program.

"It’s common for Engineering programs to offer a two-year rotation program, rotating though diverse types of role. This type of program works great if you are less decided on what you want to do.  If you know you’re passionate about data science, a more accelerate approach, like what is offered at 84.51°, works better," she explains.

Sara 8451

"The Development Program helped me discover the right role that complemented my technical skillset. I came in thinking my role would be more consulting focused, but was happy to pursue a career in Data Science," she adds.

"The best part of the Development Program is the connection you make with other new hires. These relationships give you visibility into the work happening across the company.  It’s nice to make connections between your work and others’ work."

"The Development Program was a wonderful experience because it starts with several weeks of broad learning about the company. Then as a Consultant, you get dedicated time to learn our tools and become an expert on them before having client responsibilities. Then that knowledge then gets applied through a period of project work. During that time, you get experience working with many different teams. By the time you are placed in a role, you understand what the role is like, as well as technical expertise that helps you gain credibility with clients," she explains.

This set me up to add value in my client relationships from the start, even as I was working to learn their business and strategies. Another benefit of the program are the people you meet in the program. Right away, you know Consultants and Analysts all over the organization and have the foundation of a network – not to mention, a group of friends!"

“I work on the MIA (Merchandising Insights & Activation) team, spending most of my time evaluating commodities’ performance within Kroger. If a Category Manager has a question about how — or why — a product, brand, or commodity is performing the way that it is, it’s my job to use data to find the answer. Once I’ve collected the data I need, I organize it into a story that answers their question and, usually, provides recommendations! It’s a lot of fun," says Logan.

"I’m grateful to be in a role that energizes, excites, and challenges me at a company that I love!"

Meanwhile, Co-op Program participant Mackenzie Crowell enjoys playing her part in rewarding precision marketing projects.

It has been very rewarding to see this project from start to finish, especially with it being my first time with that type of campaign."
