Class Hires

It Is Time for Class (Hires)!

At Parametric, we value our culture and continue to find ways to preserve it even as we grow (30 years, $200B... and counting). A key way for us to build and develop our people is to help with training, which is why we developed our Class Hire Program. 

Our three-week comprehensive experience builds on what new grads may know about the investment industry, while helping them develop specific skills that can drive their success at Parametric. It is also designed to help new hires feel welcome, we offer plenty of opportunities to develop camaraderie among others in the program—as well as chances to develop relationships with Parametric employees throughout the company. 

Our program begins with an overview of Parametric’s history, investment philosophy, products and strategies. In these sessions, our recruits have the opportunity to interact with staff across all levels, including lunch with our CEO and other senior executives. This experience is definitely a highlight of the program, and it is a great example of our open-door approach.

Once our new hires have a solid foundation, they move on to one-on-one job shadowing to provide further insight into their new role and team. Whether they want to explore Investment Operations, Portfolio Accounting or Client Relations, everyone will interact with various aspects of client accounts and have a direct impact on our overall business!

Bottom Line

An important part of our overall mission is the development of our people. Our Class Hire program is one exciting way for us to foster a new generation of dedicated employees. 
"Starting a new job is challenging and, especially after changing careers, this program helped ease the transition and prepared me for the job. Getting to go through the program in a cohort made the whole experience fun and reduced any anxieties I may have had." 

"Department overview presentations were really helpful to learn about the company as a whole, who we can expect to work with day-to-day, products we offer, the different ways to target a variety of clients, and some career paths we can follow within the company." 

"Job shadowing was really great. I think working directly with my team taught me the most, putting together all the information from presentations and giving context in my role, hands on.”
