Irene Polnyi

Engagement Manager

Describe your passion, your expertise, and your way.

My passion is to get the absolute most out of life by prioritizing new experiences as much as possible, embracing hardships as learning opportunities, and changing my mind often, sometimes mid-sentence. Consulting is the perfect career for me because the projects pose a million problems just ripe for solving.

What is your favorite brand?

My favorite brand is the New York Times. I love that they have broadened to stand for more than just current events, and now are authorities on information itself, ranging from legislative deep-dives to interior design. I come away from experiences with this brand feeling smarter.

What is a little known fact about you?

I built my dining room table from scratch.

What drew you to Prophet?

I met a Propheteer who was incredibly smart and absolutely raved about his job. Of course I wanted to see what all the fuss was about!

What is the best part of working at Prophet?

Prophet goes out of the way to make their employees feel appreciated: company retreats, mid-meeting beers, and a comprehensive career coaching program are just a few things that make Prophet stand out. I feel truly lucky to be working here.

Any advice to applicants?

Do your homework! The Prophet interview is tough, but don’t you want it to be?
