Below are some illustrative details on our expectations for billable hours, collaborative co-sourcing, our feedback and review process, and commute and travel.

- We believe in Firm over Team over Self, meaning that there may be times that you are collaborating on projects outside of the traditional scope of your role as our business needs require it.
Feedback and Review Process
- In order to support our Higher Purpose of helping people transform themselves into better leaders to exponentially improve their lives, we openly share rhythmic and consistent feedback. We see this as a growth and development opportunity for our professionals.
- Internal feedback is provided through our PVL (Performance, Values, and Individual Leadership) process three times per year. Consider the first two as report cards, leading up to your year-end evaluation. Below are category descriptions:
- Performance (what you do): What has client feedback looked like? Are you dedicated to client service?
- Values (how you do it): Are you leaned into Firm initiatives? Do you participate in market events? Is leadership aware of your interest in developing as a leader?
- Individual Leadership: Do you possess a growth mindset? Are you continuously driven to take on new challenges and get out of your comfort zone? Do you demonstrate an entrepreneurial spirit and take accountability for your actions?
Commute and Travel
- Unless otherwise agreed upon, you are expected to work from the Siegfried Advisory office geographically closest to you Tuesday - Thursday of each week.
- Travel to client sites may be required based on client needs. Frequency of site visits is client-specific not to exceed 25% of a calendar year.
- Commute times may vary based on city and client. Professionals may be expected to commute up to 1 – 1.5 hours, in any direction, from either your home or designated Siegfried Advisory office (whichever is shortest).
- Mileage is considered for travel reimbursement.
