One of my most recent and cherished accomplishments was graduating from SPEED Academy, a five-month-long cross-discipline, practical learning program that PS offers. This course covered the key areas of our business (Strategy, Product, Experience, Engineering, Data) and how they fit together. We learned from subject matter experts from all over the business and worked with a group to tackle a real client problem.
The program is broken down into individual courses that include lessons, homework and assignments. We developed skills outside of our own craft, built a broader understanding of digital business transformation at PS and learned how to better collaborate with peers in other capabilities to solve the many challenges our clients are facing. This was a fantastic learning experience, and I recommend it to everyone I can.
One of the best things about working at PS is the people. Everyone that I have worked with—no matter the capability—is enthusiastic, curious and a continuous learner. PS employees have a natural curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. They are eager to learn and stay updated on the latest industry trends, technologies and methodologies. They embrace continuous learning and professional development to stay ahead in the ever-evolving digital landscape. These characteristics collectively contribute to a diverse and dynamic workforce at PS, enabling the company to deliver exceptional digital solutions and drive meaningful impact for clients and the people around them.
