Real work, real clients, real fun.
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.

Yes

An Internship where anyone is willing to not only talk to you, but also listen to you too.
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.

West Monroe Partners - The Full Consulting Experience in 12 Weeks!
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

coaching and mentorship, exposure to business development, professional development, and exposure to working with directors


Downers

i was unable to travel, and was frustrated by the lower skill level of other interns.


Advice to Potential Interns

You do work expected of full time employees, and are never 'the intern.' They are also very encouraging of meeting as many people as possible and looking at other groups in the firm.


Advice to Management

A housing stipend could have improved living in Chicago. I was also upset that offers were not extended in August, and the amount of miscommunication surrounding the process.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Summer of being immersed in a helpful and supportive culture
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people who I met were very eager to get to know me


Downers

There were slow periods during which little work was needed to be done


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure that you have a good understanding of what you will be doing before coming in


Advice to Management

Not all interns will have the same experience. I would try my best though to make sure each intern has challenging work that is not exposed to the risk of being removed from the scope


Would You Recommend

Yes
