West Monroe ranked No. 5, based on analysis of survey responses from more than 30,000 current employees across the U.S along with rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback.

“It is rewarding to see that the adjustments we have made to support our people over this very difficult year by once again being recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Chicago,” said Tom Hulsebosch, senior managing director and Chicago office lead. “Our commitment to maintaining our unique culture has enabled us to always put our people first, even in these most challenging of times.

It’s clear the culture we have built continues to serve today’s needs of our people while also developing them into leaders both in our office and within the Chicago community, which is more important now than ever. ”

“The Best Workplaces in Chicago are made up of good people who are about their people,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “This exclusive group have created cultures where one’s background has no influence on whether you are treated with respect, fairness and credibility. These companies can expect better business results thanks to their high-trust, inclusive workplaces.”

Since opening its doors in 2002, West Monroe has grown to more than 1,500 employees nationally, with more than 850 employees in the Chicago office, and aims to nearly double the local workforce to 1,600 people by 2024. Our Chicago office serves a multitude of local clients in the financial services, private equity, consumer and industrial products, energy and utilities, retail high-tech and software, and healthcare and life sciences industries.

Like all West Monroe offices, the Chicago team is a highly participatory and collaborative culture marked by frequent events, transparent employee communications, a strong commitment to serving the local community through its corporate social responsibility program, a deep focus on inclusion and diversity through employee-led resource groups, and regular recognition awards.

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is. This is West Monroe’s fifth appearance on the Great Place to Work in Chicago list. West Monroe was also recently named one of the Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services by Great Place to Work®.
