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


    WMP has a great work-life balance which isn't true of most consulting firms. The unique blend of very technical projects within a consulting frame is what sets WMP apart from similar firms. Constantly wins awards for "Best Workplace" and I can attest to this.


    None come to mind at the moment.. Will let you know if I find one!

    Advice to Management

    As we continue to grow, make sure to keep the great culture!
