West Monroe Partners, a North American business and technology consulting firm, announced today that it has been named one of Vault.com’s 2012 “Best Consulting Firms to Work For,” the firm’s second consecutive appearance on the list.
West Monroe earned top 20 rankings in five areas in which it did not rank at all in 2011, including transparency (1st overall), compensation (10th), selectivity (13th), diversity-GLBT (16th), and informal training (19th). In addition, West Monroe also ranked among the 2012 top 10 in satisfaction, firm culture, hours, work/life balance, relationships with supervisors, interaction with clients, promotional policies, firm leadership, overall business outlook, and green initiatives.
“West Monroe is committed to leading through our core values, and this recognition is continuing evidence of our ability to do so,” said Dean Fischer, West Monroe’s president and CEO. “We are particularly pleased to receive such high rankings for areas including ‘transparency,’ ‘relationships with supervisors,’ and ‘promotions policies.’ We believe this is a direct reflection of our unique 100-percent employee owned environment, people-focused culture, and emphasis on meritocracy. But the ranking I am most pleased with is that which is reflective of the deeper side of what makes our culture so special – the respect, appreciation and celebration of diversity, specifically in the area of GLBT diversity.”
Vault.com annually ranks consultancies using a combination of metrics. In 2012, Vault.com calculated its overall rankings using the following formula: prestige and firm culture each accounted for 30 percent of the total score; and compensation, work/life balance, business outlook, and satisfaction each accounted for 10 percent of the total score.
