We asked West Monroe Partners to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

Our Chief Recognition Officer distributes accolades to employees nominated by their peers for going above and beyond. There are many ways to recognize and celebrate team members and coworkers.
  • Spot bonuses: We provide spot bonuses for outstanding client delivery performances. These awards are not planned or regular; rather, they recognize truly “heroic” efforts to deliver the best client solutions as those efforts occur. Spot bonuses range from $1,800 to $10,000. We also distribute $1000 gift cards to individuals with chargeability consistently over 100%.

Our travel bonus is a financial reward for consultants who spend significant nights away from home serving our clients.

An individual may receive up to $9,000 annually in travel bonus.
