West Monroe was recognized in this annual workplace report, a combined effort between the Chicago Tribune and its partner, Energage. The list is based solely on employee feedback. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

"For the 14th year running, West Monroe is honored to be recognized as a top workplace by the Chicago Tribune," said Jodi Bednar , West Monroe’s Chicago office leader.

Our unwavering dedication to our culture has been the cornerstone of our success and this award is a testament to the collective efforts of our people. As our headquarters and largest office, it reinforces our commitment to providing meaningful growth opportunities, all while building the next generation of leaders to continue delivering excellent client service and serving the Chicago community.


Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Chicago, West Monroe has grown to more than 2,000 employees worldwide, with 960 employees in the Chicago office. The Chicago office serves a multitude of 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.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

The rankings were revealed at an awards ceremony on November 7.
