    Pros

    Company Culture
    Social Events
    Professional Development model
    Promotion of community involvement

    Cons

    Sells projects where there is quite a bit of evidence of abusive client relationships
    Promotion of professional development depends on Advisor

    Advice to Management

    Provide a more critical look at projects that increase employee turnover
    Still very much so in the “anything for money” mindset

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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!

    I worked at West Monroe Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The right balance of a traditional corporate culture and the youth and innovation of a start-up; lots of room for growth; good compensation/benefits; manageable work-life balance; kind, smart, and supportive colleagues and senior management; ability to travel; not stuffy or uptight

    Cons

    Depends on practice, but not the most engaging or impactful work; company culture can get a little cliquey; tend to hire same breed of person/worker; could use some more diversity in terms of work style/personality

    Advice to Management

    Encourage senior management to engage with newer consultants on their project teams; put more effort into retaining talent
