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.

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.

The internship with WMP gave me the necessary skills to drive early success in my career once I came on full-time.


Uppers

Work, client interaction, respect, pay, intern events, summer in Chicago


Downers

Nothing


Advice to Potential Interns

Expect to be thrown right into the mix with just enough direction. Don't expect to be spoon-fed anything.


Advice to Management

Although one of our core values is to hire the "Best and Brightest," our current compensation does not reflect that. We lose top technical talent to industry and even other consulting companies because we do not pay top dollar. HR even says that they conduct market research to support the current compensation levels, but they are clearly looking in the wrong places; line consultants have the best feel of the market price for their talent and they all know they are underpaid at WMP. Promotion policies try to be objective by enforcing a 1-5 rating scale for projects and yearly goals but these end up being somewhat subjective based on the reviewer. If the raw scores weigh heavily on promotion, this needs to be addressed. If they don't, that needs to be communicated.

Great people, Great Work, Fun


Uppers

The amount of responsibility and trust placed in me when I hadn't even graduated school yet or had any prior professional experience. I learned incredibly fast and was placed on real client projects in my first week.


Downers

Honestly can't think of any.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be flexible. Be willing to do any project and any work. Get as much experience and diverse experiences as possible. Soak everything in.


Advice to Management

Keep it up.


Would You Recommend

Yes

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes
