Perficient’s culture and success are defined by the best and brightest people in the industry – our colleagues.
Perficient has made a promise to challenge, champion, and celebrate its people, and that includes their career growth and professional development. In this second blog of our series celebrating our 2023 Top Workplaces USA award, we’re focusing on how Perficient and our colleagues are prioritizing and enabling Growth for Everyone.
Building a culture that champions the accomplishments of every individual, both personally and professionally, is incredibly important. Growth looks different for everyone, and we’re proud to offer professional development resources, training programs, and tools aimed at guiding every colleague on their path toward success. Growth for Everyone inspires all colleagues to reach their full potential. Listen to our colleagues as they share their experience advancing their careers at Perficient.
“You have the ability to go out there and grow your own skill set,” said Mwandama Mutanuka, managing director, Automation. “So, depending on how ambitious you are, the company is willing to invest in you by giving you mentors that work with you. Then you can go out there and build your own skill set.”

“Perficient gives you all the tools to grow and to set up your own career path,” said Lorena Fernandez, project manager, Argentina. “I think it’s awesome. I’ve been able to cover different roles and different positions during my time here. I can lead the business from a different perspective while interacting with so many people. You learn in each path that you make. You’re learning a lot, and you’re growing in your personal and Perficient life.”
