Frequently Asked Questions: 

Who is MRE?

MRE Consulting is a full spectrum professional services firm that thrives at the intersection of innovative technologies and business strategy. We specialize in commodity trading and risk management (CTRM), enterprise IT services, strategic business intelligence solutions, managed services, and cloud-based services. We strive to ensure all our employees, clients, and community partners expect success and experience results!

What does MRE value?

We value meritocratic reward, long-term partnerships, open communication with executives, personal autonomy, and constant growth.

What sets MRE apart?
  • The lack of bureaucracy and opportunity for personal relationships with management allow for flexible, meritocratic compensation tailored to the individual.
  • No regimented “up-or-out” policies: find a role that fits you, and MRE will ensure you are put in a position to succeed on projects for years to come
  • MRE may have an entrepreneurial culture, but we have big-firm stability: MRE has no debt, an extremely strong reputation in Houston, and has been widely recognized for the value we offer to our clients. Work with Fortune 500 companies across the globe!
What is the interview process like?

Stressed about case interviews? No worries! We don’t require case interviews during our evaluation process – instead our primary concern after initial resume screening is deciding if you are a good fit with MRE and likewise, if MRE is a good fit for you! We prioritize behavioral interviews and strive to foster a holistic understanding of each candidate.

Considering those “big firms” for that “big” paycheck?

MRE’s flat organization structure and lean size gives us the ability to avoid “big firm” burnout while still possessing “big firm” resources: professional education tools, career mentorship, and yes, competitive compensation! You can expect a total compensation package in the $80-85K range for the Analyst position, with an annual bonus in the range of 10-30%!

If hired, what are the hours like?

While work hours vary from client to client, you can expect to average around 40 hours of client work per week. In addition to this, you can expect networking/training activities to occupy an additional 6 hours per week on average. This includes professional education, networking lunches/meals, community events, and of course, company-sponsored happy hours!

If hired, how often will I be expected to travel for work?

While MRE works with Fortune 500 companies across the globe, you are rarely, if ever, traveling back and forth across the country every week. At MRE, travel is as expected or as necessary. In fact, only 10% of our employees travel! We try to work remotely whenever possible, so as to pass on the savings to our clients!

How is compensation compared to the industry?

Considering those “big firms” for that “big” paycheck? Well it turns out that you may not have to. MRE’s flat organization structure and lean size gives us the ability to avoid “big firm” burnout while still possessing “big firm” resources: professional education tools, career mentorship, and yes, competitive compensation! You can expect a total compensation package in the $80-90K range for the Analyst position, including an annual bonus in the range of 10-30%!
