Have been at WMP for 2 years - other comments are spot on: culture is rad, M&A is a strong practice for us, and pay is slightly below market IMO. But work life balance, leadership transparency and consistently excellent coworkers cannot be beat.

Culturally I’d say the offices do tend to take from their surroundings (I.e. little longer, if not unnecessarily so, hours in NYC than elsewhere) but the biggest difference is just the size of Chicago compared to others. I’d say the big vs. small office differences aren’t anything unexpected though.

M&A team member here, personally I love it. I came from another firm a year ago (4 YOE total now, SC). It’s the only place I’ve ever experienced where the culture is actually as good as they describe it in marketing. The work is interesting and challenging. M&A does primarily tech DD, SMO/TMO. The people are intelligent, genuinely kind, and a ton of fun.

Ex-roommate is a salesforce consultant with them. He likes the company and plans to stick with them for the foreseeable future. The culture was/is pretty relaxed and he worked remotely all the time (pre-covid) when he wasn’t on client sites, even though his office was only a mile or so away. Work life balance was pretty typical of consulting firms (FWIW, they have unlimited PTO I believe). His only complaint was that pay was a little below market rate for his skill set/experience

Imposter Syndrome - help! I just got the best job offer of my life for a client side position. I’m talking a $30k raise. But it is a LOT more responsibility and I can’t help but feel insane imposter syndrome. They are putting a lot of faith in me for this role and it’s a brand new position internally so there is a lot of pressure to do well. It has me questioning all my qualifications… I recognize there are things I can bring to the table but there is a lot I have to learn in this role.
