Finance career employees


Our mission drives our culture, and our people drive our business. We help financial institutions make better decisions for their potential long-term success. We hire the best and brightest and push each other to provide our clients with our best thinking and advice. We promote and encourage each other to grow and advance both personally and professionally, all while finding fulfillment in our mission and our life.

Our company was founded on intellectual curiosity and challenging conventional wisdom, and nearly 30 years later, we still encourage our team to think differently. Whether we are working with clients to broaden our analytics, or evaluating and shaping our culture, we are always welcoming new talent who will help us on our growth journey.

We Own the Mission

We believe that our mission is best served as a privately-owned firm, and in late 2020, we became 100% employee-owned, ensuring our independence is maintained while also growing and strengthening the culture that's been so critical to our success.

As an employee-owned company, we're unified around a single purpose. We plan for the future by consistently reinvesting in our employees, capabilities, and expertise to provide our clients with the best experience. Our employee stock ownership plan ensures everyone shares a meaningful, personal, and collective stake in the successes. At PT, you're more than an employee—you're an owner. When the firm succeeds, we all succeed.

Employees join the ESOP on the June 30th or December 31st following their one-year service anniversary, and receive an allocation of PT shares each year. As we continue to execute on our mission year-over-year, the value of the shares can increase overtime, allowing our employees to build wealth for their future.

It's all about our mission, and the ownership of that mission. We own the mission.

We aim for a culture of high-performance, accountability, and excellence. Employees are encouraged to live a rich and positive life while maintaining work and personal responsibilities. This culminates in work/life balance and integration—people take the time they need, when they need it.
