Ranked Third Overall; Cited for Excellence in Compensation and Benefits and Culture
West Monroe Partners, a full-service North American business and technology consultancy, today announced that it has been named one of Consulting® magazine’s 2017 “Best Firms to Work For.” This is the sixth time Consulting® has recognized West Monroe Partners 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 nearly 9,000 consultants representing more than 300 firms. West Monroe Partners ranked third overall – matching its highest ranking ever. 
West Monroe Partners also ranked among the top 10 firms in six out of six employee satisfaction categories: firm culture, work/life balance, compensation and benefits, client engagement, career development and leadership. West Monroe Partners, along with all recognized consultancies, is profiled in the “Best Firms to Work For” special section of the Consulting® September issue.

“It is always an honor to be recognized among the elite firms in our profession – and particularly to receive this recognition year after year. It means we are doing what we have always intended to do, and that is to distinguish our firm based on our culture, workplace, and career experience and to deliver on our promise to develop the next generation of leaders,” said Kevin McCarty, President and CEO of West Monroe Partners.
 
West Monroe Partners' 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 such as Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Minneapolis.  The firm plans to double its workforce over the next five years and is on target to have hired more than 300 professionals by the end of 2017.
 
“Recognition as a “best workplace” continues to position us well in the war for top talent. It attracts interest from top college recruits to seasoned consultants and executives with decades of experience. That talent is critical to our ability to grow as a firm. It is important to our clients who put their confidence in our people to deliver value and innovation, and it is important to our own people who have told us they value working with and learning from some of the best minds in the business.”
