Most Helpful Positive Review

Former employee - Vice President

Culture is very congenial and there are no jerks. However nepotism abounds and there is a lot of favoritism that determines promotion to partner.

Most Helpful Critical Review

Former employee - Group Managing Director and/or Partner

Very Political working environment. No road map for promotions. Your in the circle or out. The main producers don't move up the ladder. Almost every good employee they have had leaves at the 4 to 5 year mark when they see how the firm actually works.

Former employee - Vice President

William Blair is too steeped in tradition to embrace innovation.

Former employee - Vice President

William Blair has a great reputation, but mostly a resume builder.

Former employee - Vice President

Very traditional work culture.

Former employee - Vice President

If I was to change something, would encourage the firm to learn more about consumer products companies and those financials, due diligence, modeling, etc

Former employee - Vice President

It's vital to keep these in mind while working here - knowledge of their clients, and of the businesses of those clients, always on lookout for new ways to engage clients, new strategies, new alternative financings, etc.

Former employee - Vice President

Has a great company culture, interesting people,.

Former employee - Vice President

WmBlair is NOT a meritocracy. To often the people who make partner are mediocre and they would rather promote people who are plain vanilla rather than people who are truly good at their jobs. All they want are congenial personalities.

Former employee - Vice President

Partnership is key if you want to get paid at this company. They only promote you to partner based on how you get along with others--it's rarely about talent or good performance.

Would encourage a change to focus internally. Client could be 2nd
