Consulting

Thoughts on West Monroe, as a Sr. Consultant/Manager? W/L balance, pay, growth, etc.

W/L balance is good, growth depends on how well you fit into the "culture" (it seems to be more important to be fratty than to have expertise), pay is tier 4 salary bands (use FTI/Huron as benchmark). Firm is focused more on breadth of offerings and not depth which is adequate for your generic operations improvement or PMO projects. That leads to many cookie cutter copy paste projects and not a lot of intellectual stimulation

I’ve been here 3 years and I love it. Realize it will not be the highest base salary, but the people, work, and growth make it well worth it.

Glass door for SM is pretty accurate. It’s negotiable as well. There are also SM experience hires making well above the band

SC1 and WM2: role will be in FS practice, although no sure about travel/local, firm, and how long average tenure for those levels (SC/M) last?

Yah, not to sure what to expect from an FS standpoint. Salary can definitely be negotiable especially since you are coming from Accenture. But if you are coming in between SC/M as an SC it’s usually a year to M especially in industry verticals. Review cycle is end of year
