I interned with WMP. Travel is pretty minimal. Culture-wise, I didn't enjoy it. I thought it was really bro-ey. Consulting is prone to it of course, but when it's a small company, you can't escape it. There's a divide between the bros and the more introverted people. I would do as many informational interviews as possible before making the jump, because it was uncomfortable for me, but my friends there love it.

I interviewed with WMP a few months back. Much smaller than Slalom, but they do travel and have some very senior FS industry focused leadership in NYC. They seem to be more like a traditional MC, big 4 firm. Awesome culture. If you are OK with traveling and are industry focused WMP seems like a solid place to work.

Dilemma - To travel or not to travel. That is the question. Delta surge. Is it a good time to look for remote or 50% travel opportunities? What’s your take?

General musing - it seems like the vast majority of recs in here are for super expensive hotels and resorts (St Regis, etc). I work in consulting and make good money but can’t fathom spending $600+ a night on a hotel. Am I really in the minority or is it just that ppl staying at the Ritz want to show off?

I was rejected at Netflix right after passing the recruiter screening. The reason given is that they're looking for someone who has worked on longer-term projects. I worked on my last project for 2 years and have a 6 year project on my resume as well. I guess they don't like that I've been an independent consultant for the last four years and was on 4 projects during that time. Has anyone else encountered this kind of bias against independents working on shorter-term projects?
