Without a doubt, the highly trained employees at West Monroe Partners are the right people in your corner. With nearly 50% of the consulting and professional services firm’s staff falling under the Generation Y heading, West Monroe Partners truly understand how to maximize the talents of these driven young workers.
Employing young professionals and bringing them on board at West Monroe Partners is standard practice. The firm believes that Generation Y is crucial to the growth of the company. West Monroe Partners puts a great deal of effort into their robust campus-recruiting program in order to secure the best and brightest college graduates in the country.
In order to attract this young and promising talent, West Monroe Partners strives to maintain a culture that both excites and entertains. They also encourage teaching and learning between Generation Y workers and their superiors in the office. The workspace is without the drab cubicle set up in order to facilitate an open space for maximum communication between co-workers. It is understood that the lines of communication between departments and levels are always open and that everyone is working towards a common goal of providing the best consulting possible for their clients. In addition to client feedback, they also highly value internal feedback.
Senior Consultant Alison Andrews says, “I definitely appreciate it when the managers are invested in my career and constantly providing me feedback. Ultimately, the career goal is to become a manager myself, so, I would like to learn from them and apply their feedback.”
Gaining knowledge, experiencing new opportunities and overcoming challenges are part of any successful business model. Accomplishing all of these objectives while still managing to have a good time seems to be what makes West Monroe Partners a truly Generation-Y friendly place to work.
