"West Monroe, though experienced on many fronts and in many industries, does not come to the marketplace telling clients what we can do to them or for them. Instead, we work with clients to outline their success criteria and collaboratively work with them to achieve the goals have developed."


"During my first project, I was able to travel internationally, work hand-in-hand with the CEO and CFO at my client, and have responsibilities that many other firms don’t offer to their employees at such a young age."

    I have been working at West Monroe Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture and mentorships. Higher-level, more experienced members have no problem sitting down with junior staff to discuss career development and advice. The work is engaging and important. Opportunities are diverse enough to serve you well if you move away from consulting in a few years. Good benefits and PTO as well. Places high value on community service and giving back.

    Cons

    Definitely targets a specific type. Mostly white, middle/upper class from the suburbs who went to Big Ten schools. From what I've seen, the culture varies wildly from one team to another. I personally love my team and my coworkers, but I can see the other more greek life, student body president, type-A consultants around the office (male and female). There are definitely "chosen ones": people who have the right connections to upper management and rise quickly. You'll see these faces over and over on stage at company-wide events and even in marketing material.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful of "hiring for fit". You'll end up with a bunch people who all look and think the same.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at West Monroe Partners (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2017.

    Interview

    - Initial phone interview with HR
    - 2nd phone interview with corporate executive to determine cultural fit
    - 3rd in person interview with 5 staff employees in the Healthcare sector, included a case analysis and a standard set of 5 questions regarding examples of overcoming challenges in a previous position

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any questions for me? This was the most common question asked of me by all 5 individuals that interviewed me for the in person interview. Three of the five individuals did not have a script of questions or guidelines for their portion of the interview process. As a result the interview was more of a conversation rather than a standard interview I'm accustomed to.   Answer Question
