West Monroe is proud to be recognized by Vault.com on its list of Best Internships for 2021.
West Monroe is proud to be recognized on Vault.com’s list of 2021 Best Internships. The firm ranked 27th among all industries, and fourth in the consulting category. To compile the rankings, Vault surveyed more than 11,000 current and former interns from more than 100 internship programs to evaluate factors such as quality of life, culture, employment prospects, career development, diversity, and interview process.
In addition to having respondents rate and review their own internship experiences for the 2021 Internships Rankings, Vault asked interns to rate the prestige of other employers to determine which internships are the most desirable. Vault also considered how firms created a fulfilling virtual internship experience in response to the COVID-19 pandemic this year.
The award validates West Monroe’s investment in making internships meaningful experiences with opportunities for hands-on work. Many of our interns, over the course of their work at West Monroe, find that we have built a mutually beneficial relationship that they want to continue in a full-time capacity—80% of our interns in 2019 converted to full-time hires.
Our internships include dedicated career advisors to help our interns identify and pursue their passions, along with a formal review cycle meant to help them land a meaningful consulting career. West Monroe took their internships completely virtual this year. To maintain a fulfilling experience and provide a high level of support, interns had daily check-ins with Career Advisors, opportunities to work on client projects, weekly written feedback, leadership roundtables and virtual happy hours, and an end-of-summer presentation that allowed them to showcase their contributions.
Nationally, West Monroe has been listed as a top company to work for by Consulting Magazine and named as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For by Great Place to Work Institute® and Fortune. West Monroe was also named by Great Place to Work as a top workplace for millennials.
