An Internship where anyone is willing to not only talk to you, but also listen to you too.


Uppers

I felt valuable both with the work I did and in the social aspect of the company.


Downers

I shadowed a consultant longer than I wanted.


Advice to Potential Interns

The main product WMP produces is its people and it shows. These are smart people who are willing to share their knowledge and maybe more importantly they are people who are enjoyable to work with day in and day out.

Real work, real clients, real fun.


Uppers

Had a ton of exposure to clients (even C-level), was able to take on additional responsibility, very real-life work at the same level which I was exposed to after returning


Downers

It's hard to remember anything negative about my internship experience


Advice to Potential Interns

Pursuing an internship is the best way that you can try out WMP and consulting in general. it's really difficult to know what consulting is, and personal experience will help you understand if you like/fit in with WMP's very specific and special culture.

Fun experience

Hours were decent, but a lot more is expected if you go full-time. Not enough internal/external support on solo-projects - out there expectations occasionally

It's a great experience. Network, and work hard.

3-Month Trial Run for Full-Time Employment


Uppers

You are treated the same as a full-time hire, getting opportunities and exporsure to many different things. In addition, the support structure put in place is wonderful.


Downers

The compensation, specifcally housing. I would have liked to stay close to the office, but there was no subsidy for housing, so I had to stay further from the office, reducing my opportunities to spend more time with my co-workers.


Advice to Potential Interns

In the consulting world, much of the success that you have comes down to the experience and people you are exposed to. Make sure that you think "can I work with this person for 12 - 15 hours a day" as you interview with them, because you will spend more time with these people than your own families.

The responsibilities given to me and the willingness of others to teach & mentor me made this one of the best experiences of my life.


Uppers

Interns are given the same responsibilities and workload as full-time employees. Culture is inclusive and supportive--employees are genuinely interested in teaching and mentoring others. Culture feels very lateral; it is extremely easy to talk to anyone in the organization include the CEO, President, and Practice Directors. Everyone cares about preserving the culture and making it a fun place to work.


Downers

Intern class may not be very tightly knit because of varying traveling schedules.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you're looking for an environment that will throw you in the deep end to accelerate your learning, this is the internship you want.
