How does the company support your career growth?

The career growth support I’ve received from my manager and AvantStay has been incredible. I’ve moved from an Operations Associate to Program Manager in less than 1.5 years and am working towards my PMP certification through company sponsorship. It’s rewarding to feel recognized for the impact I’ve made and have the potential of making here.
