Great Hands-On Experience, Great People
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people were awesome to be around, and a lot of people got to travel


Downers

The specific project I was on wasn't very exciting, but that wasn't a reflection of the company at all


Advice to Potential Interns

You're going to learn a lot about both programming and what it's like to be a consultant. If that's what you're looking for, this internship is perfect.

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.

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.
