Well, what are you interested to know about? What team would you be looking to join/what’s your background? What location are you in? My two cents...I came to WMP from a bigger name firm and don’t regret it one bit. It’s not a perfect place, don’t get me wrong. Expect perhaps a decrease in comp depending where you’re at right now (though, WMP’s ESOP is killing it and can be extremely lucrative). Even with the comp, it’s been a great place to work. Office culture actually means something here. I’ve built awesome relationships with my team and others. Good people, good work ethic, but a focus on work life balance and flexibility that is legit in my opinion. If you have any specific questions, feel free to DM.

From what I remember, when you leave the company has 5 years to cash out your shares. During that time you won't get any more but I believe it still gains value. While not guaranteed, lately it's been between 25 and 50% per year.

Meh. I left a big 4 firm to come here and am looking to leave after 2 years. The firm is smaller and has less brand awareness so some of the work I’ve come across seems like staff augmentation/ endless PMO. Also have run into very questionable engagement practices. Long term, don’t see myself growing here like I did at big 4. However I won’t deny it - people here are pretty nice and it’s a decent environment. However the culture can be very clique-y and insular at times as well. Just my 2c. YMMV
