A minimum of four rotations (six months each) should be expected regardless of whether you are part of the generalist or specialist discipline. Depending on the areas you rotate into, the rotations could be more frequent and shorter. The beauty of our program is that it is flexible and driven by not only our business areas, but your development needs and interests.
