I can say for West Monroe you’ll likely get better WLB here than at the other two. Culture is also very strong here, amazing people and lots of events every week. Downside can be that projects can be long term (6 - 12 months) and basically staff aug. But that’s just my personal experience.

WLB is a bit higher than industry standards, but maybe lower than local-only firms like Slalom. Flexible time off is very ingrained in the workforce. Culture is very fun and laid back. Like WM1 said, we have weekly events. Happy hours, food events, hybrid in-person/virtual games. I’d say most offices develop a quirky/funny personality that makes this a fun place to work. A lot of people were ready to get back into the office because we legitimately missed our colleagues. Pay is constantly being evaluated against market rates. We received 2 raises this year, first as an annual performance review and the second as a special study on COVID labor market increases. So the firm is very fairly compensated, if not at the MBB/FAANG range. I make the same (or a bit more) than most of my friends at my level in ACC and Deloitte.

Worked at both, you’ll enjoy West Monroe more. Exit opps tend to be the same, can always go to big firm after a few years.

If this is your 1st job out of college, go to Accenture. They will have the best training and support for new analysts compared to any mid sized or boutique firm. If you don’t like ACN after a year or so, then look to jump to a smaller firm.

I recently found a new job and am (finally) making as much as my husband even though historically I’ve made significantly. We’ve recently purchased our home and also have a child on the way. My husband insists that because I now make as much as him, I should kick in half of the mortgage, car loan, and utilities (I pay about 40% now). I feel this is an unfair ask because as head of household, the man should shoulder more of the financial responsibility. He says it’s the 21st century…
