Central to WBB's culture is a strong sense of our duty to the communities that support and sustain our busines. In turn, we pursue every opportunity to reach out and give back to these communities. WBB has instilled our philosophy for social responsbility through our workforce. We also work with corporate partners, vendors, and our peers to develop and enact related iniatives and build relationships.

WBB established a pathway internship program that is designed to help demobilize veterans as they transition to careers as civilians. We then help them with permanent job placement either in-house or with another firm. We supported Operation Jump- Start with donations of suits and ties from employees to help veterans transition into the civilian workforce. Each year, WBB personnel gather to provide bicycles, helmets, hundreds of toys, as well as monetary donations for several campaigns surrounding veterans and their children, including Toys for Tots.

WBB also supports the Three Oaks Center through the establishment of the Southern Maryland Veterans Initiative and a Veterans Stand- Down Day. These efforts focus on the needs of service veterans who are facing very difficult challenges – including homelessness complicated by unemployment, healthcare issues, and drug and alcohol abuse.

Our personnel give much of their time to support the veteran community. Many do pro-bono work for one of our Warrior Gathering partners, Warrior Canine Connection. This effort includes consulting services, writing business plans, as well as designing corporate materials for the non-profit organization.

WBB's Annual Warrior Gathering

The largest of our corporate-wide efforts is WBB’s annual Warrior Gathering, during which we partner with local veteran-owed nonprofit organizations to help injured service members and their families strengthen family bonds and relieve stresses. Our Warrior Gathering provides a much-needed respite through a relaxing environment for quality family time, informal peer group support, group activities, and a venue for spouses and family members to connect and learn from one another. Since the program initiation in 2012, WBB has raised more than $150,000, as well as material donations supporting these efforts.

    I have been working at WBB Consulting full-time (More than a year)


    WBB has many pros outside the normal benefits most companies offer. What I like about WBB is flexibility to reasonably work from home or the office allowing me to maximize the use of my time. Additionally, the company offers many opportunities to excel should you decide to pursue it, and your involvement is up to you. Also, it is not so large a company that it forgets its people, and the office really feels like a family atmosphere interacting with its employees from the most junior to the most senior person. There is mutual respect. Once you become a team member, your opinion and experience matter, and as long as you let the other members know about your skills, they will make good use of them. On top of that, I like the fact that leadership looks out for you even when opportunities slow down and don't just kick you to the curb. The people are awesome and there is a wealth of experience and subject matter experts that know how to do there job and do it with quality and pride. I like being part of this kind of team. We do interesting work across the DoD and other government agencies as well as the civilian business sector.


    WBB is a great company, but it is only what you make of it. Work can slow down at times, so you really have to seek out the opportunities and network yourself regularly. If you involved yourself, then success will come. If you sit back, you will have difficulties. Work and consulting projects will not necessarily come looking for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the lines of communication with your employees and continue to be open about where the company is going.

    Positive Experience


    I applied online. I interviewed at WBB Consulting.


    I was called almost out of the blue by one of the recruiters at WBB, who had came across a couple of resumes I had submitted a while back. The positions I had applied for were no longer open, but the recruiter asked if I was willing to be looked at for some other positions.
     I said sure and she got me a phone interview with the Program Manager right away. A couple of phone interviews established my credentials, and I was able to choose from two positions.
