Consulting Intern

July - August 2020 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

West Monroe Partners has an excellent culture with supportive mentors and helpful feedback. The internship program was highly structured with transparent responsibilities and opportunities to engage in interesting projects. I really enjoyed the steep learning curve and engaging in real project work, as I felt supported by my managers and able to reach out to anyone for help or just to chat.

What I wish was different

The internship was virtual unfortunately, due to Covid-19, however West Monroe did an excellent job adapting their internship program to a virtual format. I wish the internship experience could have been longer and in person, but that was not necessarily up the company. I don't have much else I would change!

Advice

There is good training during the first two of weeks on technical skills but I would recommend that one has basic to advanced technical skills in common consulting software applications such as Excel and PowerPoint. Additionally, one needs to be willing to constantly learn, researching different concepts and technologies as well as always taking notes.

Data Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

We were encouraged to schedule half-hour "coffee chats" with employees from all over the company, just to talk and get a feel for things. I had so much help and felt very well-guided.

What I wish was different

I didn't get assigned a project until two weeks in.

Advice

Be patient when waiting for your project, keep personal documentation of the work you've been doing, and network network network!
