West Monroe named No. 3 on Consulting Magazine’s 2018 ‘Best Firms to Work For’

West Monroe Partners, a national business and technology consultancy, today announced that it has been named No. 3 on Consulting® magazine’s 2018 “Best Firms to Work For.” This is the seventh time Consulting® has recognized West Monroe in its annual workplace ranking, a comprehensive look at the quality of life within the consulting profession’s top firms based on responses to an independent survey of some 10,000 consultants representing more than 300 firms. West Monroe ranked third overall among large firms for the second year in a row.

West Monroe also ranked among the top 10 firms in all six employee satisfaction categories: firm culture, work/life balance, compensation and benefits, client engagement, career development, and leadership. The firm, along with all recognized consultancies, is profiled in the “Best Firms to Work For” special section of the Consulting® September issue.

“Our size continues to attract best-in-class people who want to work for a firm that is large enough to offer growth opportunities and the resources and support necessary to succeed—but not so large that they risk getting lost,” said Kevin McCarty, President and CEO of West Monroe. “Our mission to develop the next generation of leaders remains our top priority. That encompasses everything from recruiting to mentoring and career development, to programs that help us retain diverse talent.”

West Monroe’s people-focused culture and policies consistently rank the firm as one of the best places to work in the consulting industry and in major metropolitan areas Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York and Seattle.  West Monroe reached a major milestone in August, officially crossing the 1,000-employee mark. The firm is focusing on building another major hub of technology professionals in Dallas, one of its newest and fastest-growing offices. The office plans to triple its workforce over the next five years.
