Consulting

Any insight on internal (non-consulting) roles at West Monroe Partners? Considering a move from MBB... Intrigued by the culture, ESOP and FTO. Doubts about other benefits (medical, travel, phone etc)

I'm not with WMP but internal at Kearney... If you want to hear about nonconsulting roles at a consulting firm I'm happy to talk about it!

Thank you A1! I’ve been in internal roles in consulting industry most of my career, probably we could create a separate bowl (if it does not exist already) and compare notes!

If you move to WMP and end up at the salary negotiation phase DO NOT let us hold the ESOP over you in salary negotiations. The new vesting schedule means you will need to do 5 years (possibly more depending on your start date) to be fully vested. I’m uncertain if the ESOP program will even last long enough to fully vest for you. Overall I think WMP is a pretty decent place to work. We like to tout our great “people first” culture but in the end WMP is still a business where making money is priority one and final decisions on issues will reflect that.

How much longer do you think the ESOP will last? Curious as I’ve heard multiple things about this

Hey! Can speak to the culture and values here, it’s great. I know several in internal roles and both the retention and satisfaction seem to be pretty high. I’ve heard a lot of honest thoughts on the internal roles and they seem to be quite positive. Feel free to DM me for more info.

You're about right on benefits, but WMP just assumed a greater % of healthcare costs. So that helps. I have some friends in internal roles. If you have a specific question, let me know.

OP- I'd describe our culture as light on procedures / policies, with more emphasis placed on case by case basis tailoring. This can lead to some frustration or perception of favoritism, but to me it's a worthwhile tradeoff than an overly structured place. If you're applying for shared services role - ask about Bedazzled and see what reaction you get.
