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

Get real and great experience as if you were a new hire, not an intern.
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects were being staffed on a client facing project, getting involved with committee work outside of client work and meeting so many smart and great people.


Downers

I wish I could have started earlier and bonded more with our entire internship class.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do a lot of learning outside of the work day to keep up and impress your project team. Always try doing everything you're assigned and ask for help after exhausting all resources. You will learn a tremendous amount while working here and make great relationships.


Advice to Management

I wish we got to do a mini consulting 101 training as interns. Also, it would have been nice to know if we were receiving a full time offer before leaving.


Would You Recommend

Yes
