The Chicago-based consulting firm has employees across the country, allowing some to work even where there isn’t a company office. Despite the way employees are scattered between offices, they say the work environment is collaborative and supportive. Monthly breakfasts with the company’s leadership and regular social events and opportunities all contribute to strong feelings of belonging at West Monroe Partners. “West Monroe Partners is one of the few places that I’ve witnessed that combines the culture and camaraderie of a small company with the standards and professional aspects of a large company,” says one employee. Plus, employees have a real stake in their company: West Monroe Partners is owned by its employees in an Employee Stock Ownership Program—so when West Monroe has a good year, so do they.
