Young Professionals (YP)

YP’s mission is to spark innovation and exchange ideas to further the company’s goals. The team is focused on cultivating new hires and professionals with 5 years or less experience. The program was created by a recent graduate who joined MRE through the internship program and had a big idea. It continues to be led by young professionals today.

YP is a smaller family within MRE, providing opportunities to learn more about consulting, our clients, their industries, and most importantly, our company. Events range from lunch and learns, networking events, and community service.

The team hosts an annual Kickball Showdown. Members of the Young Professionals (YP) and Experienced Professionals join forces to pit coworker against coworker. Winner takes bragging rights and the official Athletic Series trophy. Word of the event has spread, and spectators attend to cheer (and heckle), with a good time had by all.

YP breaks down barriers outside the office and encourages people to get to know each other through opportunities for networking, volunteering, and learning from not only peers, but also senior leadership at the company.

Career Advising Program

Mentorship, Coaching & Team Building

A career in consulting can be difficult to navigate. Our Career Advising Program (CAP) helps people achieve their highest potential. Each employee is paired with an advisor who will act as their mentor, coach, and champion.

We host big and small events to bring people together throughout the year from the annual holiday party, company-wide happy hours, department socials, to project appreciation events. Social events bring people together, while serving double duty as a communication forum for the latest news about the industry, company and individual accomplishments.

Community Service

We are invested in giving back to the communities we live and work in. In Houston, we support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Child Advocates, and other local non-profit organizations. The MRE Bike MS team has participated 18 years in a row and has raised over $1.6 million. The focus, however, is not on the company but the cause.

Learn More

We had 45 riders one year, which is incredible for a company of our size. The real work that goes into this event happens well before and well after we get on those bikes – the doctors and researchers working to find a cure, as well as the dollars being raised to support these endeavors is what really counts.
