West Monroe’s honor as No. 5 on Consulting Magazine’s 2020 “Best Firms to Work For” list is one of 26 awards earned in 2020

The honor is one of 26 awards West Monroe has received in 2020 for both its workplace culture and the achievements of its employees.  

West Monroe is honored to be recognized by Consulting Magazine as one of the 2020 Best Firms to Work For. This is the 11th consecutive year West Monroe has received this recognition, and the 9th year in a row on the large firms list. The honor is one of 26 awards West Monroe has received in 2020 for both its workplace culture and the achievements of its employees. 

The ranking is a comprehensive look at quality of life within the consulting profession’s top firms, based on an independent survey of about 11,000 consultants representing  more than 300 firms. The award measures employee satisfaction in the following categories: culture, career development, client engagement, compensation and benefits, and firm leadership.

“Despite the challenges of this year, we remain committed to our mission of building the next generation of leaders by maintaining an inclusive, people-first culture that provides the support our people need to thrive no matter what they are facing,” said Chief People Officer Susan Stelter

To create a fulfilling work experience for our consultants, we utilize a framework called ‘career equity’ that empowers our people to visualize the career they want and provides the support and career development opportunities they need to realize it.

West Monroe’s 2020 accolades include national awards, best-workplace recognition in many of its local markets, and individual honors for several consultants and leaders. Many of the awards are based on feedback from employee satisfaction and engagement surveys conducted by various third-party organizations, such as Great Place to Work and Fortune, Chicago Tribune, Puget Sound Business Journal, Los Angeles Business Journal, and Minneapolis Star Tribune

West Monroe has grown from a 2002 startup to a firm of more than 1,300 employees in seven cities across the United States. West Monroe is 100% employee owned, which is key to the firm’s uniquely collaborative culture and to how we deliver results – because each employee has a tangible interest in the firm’s success.
